This month we are featuring Princess Bride. Start right here with this DIY Princess Bride subway art because your fandoms deserve to be shown off.

Step 1

First, choose your four quotes. I used:

  1. “Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.”
  2. “Inconceivable.”
  3. “You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept.”
  4. “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

Step 2

Next, sketch out how you want your words to appear on your canvas.

Step 3

Cover each canvas with a coat of black paint.

Tip:

  • Remember to cover the edges of the canvas as well.

Step 4

Allow the paint to dry.

 

Step 5

Sketch out the designs on the painted canvases with your colored pencil.

Tip:

  • If you need to erase you can but have some black paint on hand to cover any areas that require touch-ups.

 

Step 6

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. You might be inspired to host a movie night soon!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
