Address Subway Art

Address subway art has been showing up all over the web!  I like to call mine “Address Subway Art with Heart” since we have specific hearts for each address I lived.
These addresses represent all the places I’ve lived… and the hearts are symbolic of where I lived as a newlywed {the first turquoise } and the following 4 ‘s represent the address I brought each new baby home to.  Awww!

If you want to make your own, follow these easy steps:
1. Board size: 12×22
2. Paint base color (we used Sea Salt by Sherwin-Williams)
3. Cut vinyl lettering & backwards weed
4. Apply transfer paper onto vinyl quote
5. Apply vinyl onto board, peel off transfer paper
6. Paint desired color of acrylic paint for top color and heart colors.
7. Let paint dry completely 
8. Peel off vinyl lettering
9. Touch up & sand edges

That’s it!

Your very own personalized subway art with heart!

  1. Can you possibly tell me the list of fonts you used for this?

  2. I love your blog and finally have a place to put this sign! I remember you used to have a shop to purchase this, but I can’t find it. Please tell me you still sell this!!

    1. That’s a great question! When you “weed” vinyl lettering, you remove the excess around the letters so your phrase is left.  When you backward weed, you pick out each letter individually so there is dead space left.  Since there is now emptiness there, you’ve created a stencil so you can paint inside of it!

  3. Fabulous!! I love subway art and you definitely put a unique touch on yours. The colors and the fonts are wonderful – and how cute are the hearts? I have loved exploring around your blog (that lemonade stand is SO cute!). Lots of fun projects!
