Pottery Barn Knock-Off: Numbered Canvas Frames

I was browsing the Pottery Barn site the other day and came across these pretty numbered frames ($39 for a set of three):

When I saw these oval frames at my local church thrift store on Friday, I knew immediately that I could do something similar with them.
First, I spray-painted each frame black.  While they were drying, I used my Cricut to make my 1,2,3 stencils.  Instead of canvas, I used some Osnaburg fabric which I find gives a similar look.  I used fabric paint to add my numbers to the fabric, and I added them to each frame once they were dry.  
I still have to add the chains to the back of each frame and hang them.  Overall, though, I'm really happy with how my version came out!  And it cost me about $4 to do mine.

Oh I have not noticed those at Pottery Barn but they are super cute! You did a great job and saved a lot by making your own. That's my way of doing it!
