Our House Rules and Origami Owl WINNER!

Winner announced at the bottom of of this post!

 I bought a square canvas at a garage sale for a couple bucks. 
 It was black with a big white tulip close-up. 
Nothing wrong with it, but I didn't buy it for the painting, just the material.  I finally got around to doing my subway art House Rules on it. 
 I love all the super cheap letter stencils that are available out there
 (check Wal Mart!).
  I never have a plan when I start out, just whatever fits good as I go....  I've found myself pointing out "be respectful" to my kids for about every reprimand. Good thing that one really covers the bases!  Now that it's done I've thought of all kinds of "rules" that should have been included! 

(No tooting on each other, burping in faces, using yogurt as lotion... just to name a few.  Those just don't go real well on wall art, though.)

  1. Love your subway art - now I just have to find a canvas to re-purpose. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. This looks so great! I love your rules, too, though I'd *have* to add to "no burping in faces" bit. My son thinks that's hilarious to do.

    If you haven't already, I'd love if you'd come join my How To Tuesday link party, too.

  3. Your sign is darling! I love it. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I've created a house rules sign, but I haven't made it yet. All the ones I've found required using a Silouette or Cricut, which I'm too cheap to buy. I wasn't sure if stencils would work, but you've proven they do! Yay! Now I just need to head to Wal-Mart and find more stencils since I only have two sets. Your finished product turned out awesome!

  5. I have been wanting to make one of these family rules forever. Yours looks great.

  6. Hi Kammy!! This is so perfect for me today! I picked up two canvas's at a garage sale for just a few dollars and planned to paint over the tulip too!! Thanks for the great idea...I'm getting my stencils out now!!

    Love your blog!

  7. This sign is lovely. I love that you repurposed the canvas. Visiting from domestically speaking party. I linked up a painted canvas too. :)
