  1. Spell out a favorite quote using your wooden letters purchased from a craft store and lay them on the canvas. Use a ruler as a straight edge guideline if you want the letters to be in a straight line
  2. Once the words are in a design that you like, lift up one letter at a time, apply hot glue on the underside and press it back onto the canvas. Repeat until all the letters are attached
  3. Use a decorator brush to apply a thick layer of water-base sealer glue and finish all over the canvas and the letters. This will give the canvas and wood letters a uniform surface and texture. Allow sealer to dry before moving on to the next step
  4. In a well-ventilated area, apply white spray paint all over the canvas and letters, and then allow paint to dry
  5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for each canvas
  6. Hang your canvases on the wall using appropriate picture hooks
