We’re back again with the Monthly Movie Blog Hop! Last month we loved creating our Christmas movie posts so much that we’ve decided to make it a monthly hop. This month we are featuring Princess Bride. From delicious recipes to fun crafts, you will find tons of ideas to delight your inner geek-girl! Start right here with this DIY Princess Bride subway art because your fandoms deserve to be shown off.

First, choose your four quotes. I used:
- “Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.”
- “You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept.”
- “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Next, sketch out how you want your words to appear on your canvas.
Cover each canvas with a coat of black paint.
- Remember to cover the edges of the canvas as well.
Allow the paint to dry.
Sketch out the designs on the painted canvases with your colored pencil.
- If you need to erase you can but have some black paint on hand to cover any areas that require touch-ups.
Go over your pencil lines with white paint. Allow the paint to dry.
Step 7 (Optional)
Paint a second coat of white over the areas that need it. This will be necessary for large areas (like the letters on the “Inconceivable” canvas).
This DIY Princess Bride subway art was so fun to make. Of course, getting to watch the movie while I made it didn’t hurt. I chose to go with black and white as a nod to the Dread Pirate Roberts’ outfit. If you want to match the color scheme you already have in your home, choose colors that do so. I still would recommend only 2 colors per canvas to create the bold look. Before you go, get your Princess Bride fix by checking out the other awesome recipes and tutorials from my friends.
