"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Printable SUBWAY Art

Subway Art has become very popular I might say. 
But the one reason why I could not jump on it was because of the time and effort that has to
go into making it......like cutting out a stencil. 
So lazy old me came up with this one afternoon and I am very HAPPY with it.
Color!!!  That is what I wanted mine to have.
Here it hangs in my kitchen for all to see.
I just typed it up on my computer.  I used the same font and size at first. 
I typed everything I wanted it to say.  I then went through and adjusted the font style and size to my liking.  Added color and hit the print button.  Fast and easy.  I found the frame at the thrift store for $1.00 and it went from ugly gold to green with some spray paint.


If you like the other things hanging on the wall

That is a great idea! I made mine with chipboard scrapbook letters I painted white, a stencil was too much for me too lol. I love the way yours came out!

Very Cute! I just made one but it's sitting on my computer waiting to be sent to Costco to be printed! I made it with my digital scrap program....black background with different fonts and white for the words! Same idea as yours and so easy!

What a great idea! I don't have a digital craft cutter and hand cutting them would take for-ev-er! Love this version!

I absolutely love this and it couldn't be more perfect! My daughter is moving into a new home next week - on her own with 3 kiddies - a fresh start and she wanted something on a wall with 'family' rules/motto - that kind of thing. I can make this as a house warming idea (it's actually something I CAN do too LOL!). Thanks sooooo much for sharing the idea. Blessings

I really LOVE this! I love the eat oreos one. We actually registered for Oreos when dh and I got married. Definitely a family rule in my book! Love your take on the subway art!
