Alabama Canvas

My family is big Alabama Football fans since we live in Alabama.  So, I thought I would make a little canvas today since football season has started.  (I prefer NFL Football, so I may have to make me a Steelers one of these.)

I started out with a 6x6 canvas from Hobby Lobby.  I spray painted it with Valspar red.  Once it was dry, I used SCAL to cut out the Alabama A in white vinyl.  I applied a coat of Mod Podge over the canvas to ensure the vinyl would stay down.  Once that was dry, I took a piece of houndstooth ribbon and hot glued it to the side of the canvas to finish it off.  I think it turned out nice and was really quick and simple to put together.


I am entering this into the following challenges:
