SPD [Texas Edition]

Hey y'all!
Happy Valentines Day!
It's Thursday, which can only mean one thing..
It's time for Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. with Katie & Steph! :]

This week I decided to make a Texas canvas.
I was born in Ohio (& I love love love Ohio too)
BUT... Texas has my heart!

Here's my pinspiration:

What you'll need:

*red & blue paint
*paint brushes
*white paint pen
*canvas (I chose an 8x11)

What you do:

Step 5: Add the words. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures when I was in the process of writing the words, so all I have is the final creation.

My Version:

and you may have noticed I added a heart on there..
That's because I'm a little partial to my city, Houston :]

Hope you guys love it as much as I do!
Can't wait to go see what everyone else made! ;]


  1. Love this -- Yours is better I think!!

  2. I love your handwriting! Looks beautiful!

  3. That is a difficult project to take on. You nailed it! It makes me Rice Crispie treats look like child's play! LOL. Stopping by from SPD linkup.

  4. Great diy! Pinterest is so inspiring!

  5. oh I love it so much! It turned out so cute. I'm going to have to make one for Oklahoma!

  6. This is a great idea, I love how yours turned out! I need to save this for later so I can make one for my state :)

  7. Adorable! I may have to try something like this out :)

  8. This is adorable! I'll have to try it out :)

  9. This turned out SO good! I want to do this for my state now; I don't know what quote I'd use though.

  10. I just love this! I grew up in Texas, but now I'm a Chicago girl. I love seeing a little bit of home every now and then! Thanks for following my blog, following you as well now!
