For me, coming up with fun gifts for neighbors, teachers or friends, is always a hard decision. I want the gift to be thoughtful, but cute at the same time. So this year I came up with this. Nothing too crazy, but perfect to display this Christmas season.
I took inspiration from a gift I was given last year (pictured above). I'm not sure where it came from, but I loved the look of it. So here is my version of it.
Paint for the canvas
Paint for the stripes
Vinyl (or you could paint the letters on)
After my canvas was painted & dried, I used tape to create the spacing for the red lines.
Then I took the glaze & used a sponge brush to paint the entire area. Then I wiped the excess off with a damp cloth.
Then apply your vinyl letters, or like I mentioned above, you can stencil them on as well.
And now you have a cute, inexpensive gift to hand out to your neighbors or friends. And of course, save one for yourself. :)
I bought the red decorative beads from the Dollar Tree & placed them in a glass jar I'd been saving.
I will soon post the 'how-to' for the framed ornament piece.
The tree was made last year, using a tree form & the decorative beads from the Dollar Tree.
