Reuse a canvas and make your own word art
While camping in the Adirondacks last summer, I saw the same adorable, modern word art throughout the souveiner shops proclaiming: The mountains are calling and I must go.

I love everything about the Adirondack Mountains, so these signs immediately caught my eye. I was a fan of the simplicity, the “woodsy” aesthetic and, of course, the quote itself.

My supplies are either from Walmart or generous family members!

    Arrange your letters! Luckily, I was able to move the stickers if necessary after placing them. So don’t worry too much about being perfect on the first try.
