I LOVE getting crafty! I was recently sent some US Art Supply 3″x3″ Mini Stretched Canvas (12 Count) to review. Once I knew that I would be getting the canvases I started searching for ideas of what I would use them for. I found several things I wanted to do. I decided to use all of the canvases for Christmas ornaments! I know…Christmas is a little over 4 months away, but it’s never too early to get started with crafts.
Before my canvases arrived, I used my silhouette cameo to cut out some stockings. I also used the cameo to write names on the top of each one. I then used a gel pen to write the year on the bottom of the stocking myself. They looked so cute and I couldn’t wait until my project was finished.
When my package arrived, I got started right away. I put one of coat of green acrylic paint on each canvas. While they were drying, I starting thinking that they needed a little more color, so I decided to add a red border…so I went with a “stitching” border. Next, I used mod podge to secure the stockings that I cut out to the canvases. I then applied 3 coats of mod podge over the whole canvas…allowing dry time in between each coat. I attached red ribbon to the back of each canvas and now they are ready to be given to everyone that I made them for. I can’t wait to see how they look on everyone’s Christmas Trees this year!
