DIY quote art

I am into drawing and hand lettering, and that’s a known fact. So today I am going to show you how to make this really easy DIY quote art, that can be customized to whatever quote you want. Put it in a frame and you got a beautiful wall decoration!image

You will need:

  • Black – or any color – sharpie ( you can also use paint, but for some reasons I chose the sharpie)
  • A sheet of paper ( or canvas, if you so wish )
  • Pencil and erser
  • ( if you chose to use paint ) obviously, you’ll need some paint brushes in different sizes


Take out your pencil and start sketching your quote. I decided to write “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow” because I find it really inspirational. Make sure to draw lightly, so you can easily erase it afterwards.

Now simply take your sharpie, draw over the pencil lines and that’s it! If you’re using paint, use a bigger brush then come back with a smaller one to clean the edges. You should wait at least a day after you can erase the pencil lines.


And I actually spelled “tomorrow” wrong, but when I realized it, it was just too late to undo the mistake…Whops! 😀 😀

Anyway, I hope you had a great holiday. Mine is about to end, but it surely was amazing – just the fact I didn’t have to go to school made it awesome! 😉
