Family Rules Subway Art Canvas
Today’s project is very special because if you look at it, it makes you realize what a family is all about! How special it is to have a family. And how such beautiful feelings and emotions keep us together.
The family rules subway art, stamps these values in our home.
I first wrote down the family rules on a piece of paper to make this DIY subway art. Then I simply started stamping them onto the canvas, after sprinkling some paint on it. I left the corner of the canvas empty, where I wanted to decoupage our frame. And in just a few minutes, I came up with this handmade family rules subway art using stamps and paint only.

I am loving this family rules subway art because it’s true to our hearts.
Let me show you the disaster I created which led to this wonderful project.
(note: the image does not exist anymore)
It looks so ugly with the dull and bright blue shades. And the bold red paint just doesn’t match right.
What was I thinking! I had a sad heart for a while, but thankfully I came up with a much better project.
Subway art material
- Alphabet stamps
- Wooden Frame
- Mod Podge
How to make family rules subway art?
I started by sprinkling some paint onto the canvas to give it some texture. And overcome that plain look by teasing the brush tip dipped in paint onto the canvas.
I placed a small book on the down right side of the canvas and left it sprinkle-free.
Then I stamped different words, we value as a family onto the canvas using the Alphabet stamps set.
I bought this Melissa and Doug Wooden Alphabets Stamps Set online.
While the stamps were drying I painted my wooden frame from Michaels in turquoise.
And printed out the Year we got married to paint inside the frame.
Then I painted the number. And decoupaged the frame on the canvas using mod podge. I also painted the sides of the canvas turquoise. And painted random words with black to give it a vintage look!
