A Simple Message


I've seen a lot of these canvas mats popping up everywhere and wanted to try it.

 

It's really so easy. I just bought a canvas mat and wooden letters and painted everything ivory.

 

Then I just glued the words on the mat (that was the hardest part).
Such a simple message to mean so much!

Here is where I'll be linking to this week.

I'd love to have something like this in my house but spell out food and put it in the kitchen. That way people only eat food in the kitchen.
