easy diy gift idea

christmas is just five days away and we are oh so excited. for anyone scrambling to finish up gifts, we have the perfect easy and cheap diy idea. quote canvases ! the total cost is under $10 and they can be designed and customized for any type of person on your list. here is how i, jane, made a few for my friends.

step one: buy canvases at the craft store: $8.99 for a two pack or some smaller and cheaper ones here. you will also need sharpie markers and paint (optional).

step two: choose the perfect quote and get drawing. pinterest was my go-to site for quote inspiration.

i choose four: “enjoy the little things” “no rain no flowers ” “better an oops than a what if” & “it is what it is…”


step three: paint any blank spaces that need a pop of color. i choose to paint the edges, as my canvases were about 1/2 inch thick.



step four: wrap and give them to the special people in your life.

super easy and cheap, yet considerate and personal. happy gifting and diy-ing !
