I picked up my Diet Coke and Coca-Cola at my local Brookshire’s. Brookshire’s has a ton of memories for me – it’s the only place my grandparents would shop and it’s honestly just a great store. The locations are large, they have plenty of clear signage and short lines. I also love that it still feels like a smaller grocery store but I know they’re going to have the items I need. The Brookshire’s YourPoints program lets you earn points for things you already purchase (one point for every dollar) – for every 100 yourpoints you earn, save 10 cents/gallon on fuel OR with 500 yourpoints you can get 5% off your grocery purchase!
- a canvas (I used 11×14)
- computer/printer/printer paper
- paint brush
- spray paint
- acrylic paint
- painter’s tape
- Coca-Cola, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Zero™ cans/bottles for inspiration
- Choose your lyrics from your favorite bottle or can of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke or Coke Zero.
- Use any computer program to type out your lyrics (I used Photoshop), then select your font. The one I used is Brusher.
- Print that sucker out and hold it up to your canvas to make sure it’s sized properly. If not, fix it and reprint. You might need to use a few different sheets of paper.
- If you want a striped canvas, use painter’s tape to make stripes. I used small pieces of tape between the stripes to make sure my lines were straight and even. (top left photo)
- Spray paint your canvas according to the directions (they all have different dry times, so make sure to check that).
- While your painted canvas is drying, use a pencil to color over the BACK SIDE of your printed lyrics. (bottom right photo)
- Place your lyric sheet in the right spot on your canvas (ink side up, pencil shaded side down). Put magazines or a book under your canvas so you don’t poke through it on this next part!
- Trace your letters with a pencil, the pencil you shaded on the back should transfer onto your canvas. Check it occasionally, there may be spots where you have to press down harder.
- Fill in the letters with acrylic paint and a brush! It’s okay if it’s not perfect, that’s the beauty of a diy project.
- Use it to decorate your mantle!
