When I saw this project on Jones Design Company, I knew that it was a project that I wanted to incorporate in our nursery.
This past summer, I found a great framed canvas of some viking here.
For just $2, I was able to get a fabulous frame and a canvas to repaint. For this project, I put the frame to good use just by removing a few nails.
I had purchased a 6 foot by 9 foot canvas drop cloth for $9.97 to use for another nursery project. Using some of the leftover material, I simply cut a rectangle in the perfect size.
After marking the 4 corners on my canvas, I was ready to begin my handwriting project.
I then wrote out Zephaniah 3:17 centered on the canvas...in my own handwriting. A regular pencil made the words visible but not permanent.
Using some leftover brown embroidery thread from Pippa's cross stitch alphabet, I was ready to begin stitching. A simple back stitch helped me to complete this project in just 2 evenings.
I was able to staple the material to the back of the frame.
I had already spray painted the frame orange to match the nursery.
I am so excited to find the perfect place for this to hang in our little boy's room.
The stitching may not be 100% perfect and the lines may not be straight. But I pray that these words of Scripture will at some point be a comfort to our little boy as they have been to his mom. I love the picture of God singing a lullaby over His children. And I love that it's written/stitched in my handwriting.
If you missed my nursery vision/plan, you can see that here.
