This is my take on the popular family rules canvas idea that you have probably seen on many-a-blog. I decided to repurpose this old window that I had created as a shadow box awhile back. For directions on how to do the spools, click here . For directions on the clothespins, click here . To make the cards, I took index cards and hot glued burlap and canvas (drop cloth) to the cards.
I have horrible handwriting, so I just did my best on this next part. I went to dafont.com and eyeballed the fonts of my choice. Using a calligraphy marker, I did my best to copy the phrases onto the cards.
When I was finished, the cards looked a bit bare. I decided to bling them up a bit using some flower inspiration from my friend Jen@Tattertots and Jello . A full tutorial on how to make the flowers can be found here . I didn’t have any cute coordinating fabrics so just used scrapbook paper.
I love the way it turned out! Now I just need to find hardware sturdy enough to hang this baby. It is heavy!
