DIY Ampersand Thumb Tack Art

I'm kind of a sucker for typographical art, but it's also sort of a love/hate relationship.  I adore the look, but so often the typography pieces I see at the store are too literal or corny for my personal decorating taste; I can appreciate why someone would want the word "eat" on their kitchen wall or "love" on display with family photos, but it's just not my thing.  This thumb tack art from Virginia at LiveLoveDIY, however, satisfies my love of lettering without pushing into that cheeseball realm.  Plus she is hilarious and her adorable cat makes several appearances in the tutorial - absolutely a recipe for a winning project if you ask me!  [how to make thumb tack ampersand art]

Project estimate:

  • Canvas, about $5 and up
  • Thumb tacks, on hand or $1 and up
  • Pencil, on hand

Total:  about $5 and up
