Great for pressies. This was a Father’s Day present.


  • 1 blank canvas (size is up to you)
  • 3 bottles of paint- one for the background. one to highlight background. one for text.
  • 1 paint brush
  • 1 pencil


  1. Paint your canvas with your chosen background colour. Use you highlighting colour to create an effect. my colours were grey and white. Leave to dry.
  2. Choose your saying and paint it on your canvas in your third colour. I used red. You can lightly write your saying onto the canvas to make the layout easier.
  3. Leave to dry and hang on the wall.


You can use any saying and any paint colours.
Nursery rhymes are great for decorating kids bedrooms.
Have fun with it.
