Add appeal to the alphabet artwork by creating canvases with numbers and punctuation marks. Another letter canvas artwork project involves the use of gallery-wrapped artist's canvas, wooden letters from a craft store, craft glue, and matte or flat-finish spray paint. Select an inspirational quotation, or choose your favorite song lyrics for the letter canvas.

After choosing your desired letters or words, arrange the wooden letters on the canvas to ensure proper spacing, and attach them to the canvas with glue. Apply a sufficient amount of glue to make the letters stick firmly without having excess glue coming out from the sides when you press the letters. Wipe any visible glue immediately.

Spray paint the entire canvas once the letters are completely dry. Spray using long, balanced strokes, ensuring there are no spots of accumulated extra paint. Leave the canvas to dry for one hour, and apply another coat if necessary. Hang the finished artwork on the wall once the paint is fully dry.
