DIY: Mr & Mrs sign

Y'all, I'm uber excited about today's Pinterest project. It's a good one!

Without further adieu... TA-DA!
The original pin is below, which can be linked to here. As you can see, I changed things up a little bit. But I was definitely inspired by this pin. I saw it and I just needed it a part of my life.
It was really simple. I will explain how to make it in detail.
~~~
Step one: Gather your supplies
You will need a frame, some fabric, paint, MR MRS letters, glazing and backing, "&" symbol, scissors, spray paint, glazier points, hot glue + gun. I always purchase my supplies from Hob Lob, so you should be set if you go there. (Some supplies not in photo.)
Step two: Size and cut fabric
I used the clear glazing as my guide. I laid the fabric upside down and drew on it with a pen, marking where I'd be cutting. Next, cut out your fabric. It should be whatever size the frame is. In my case, 16x20.
Step three: Put the clear glazing, fabric, and backing in the frame
I used "glazier points" nailed into the frame to hold all the pieces together.
Step four: Hot glue the letters onto the glazing
Apply the hot glue onto the back of the letter then apply directly to the clear glazing.
Step five: Spray paint your "&" symbol
Remember to use proper ventilation when spray painting.
 Step six. Display and admire
I am extremely happy with the outcome. We are planning to put it on a shelf above my dresser. More pictures to come.
So there you have it. I saw it, pinned it, and did it.
Thanks to Katie and Steph for the awesome link up!
