To continue along with my project theme lately, I had the girls whip up these adorable canvas paints yesterday. I got the idea from a craft group on Facebook, and because I had these canvases in the house already, we gave it a shot.
I used my Cricut, to cut the design into Contact paper. Contact paper was the much cheaper alternative to using actual vinyl. At first, I tried the clear Contact paper that I usually use as a transfer tape when making vinyl projects, but it didn’t stick to the canvas very well. I then tried a different type of Contact paper that stuck much better. It wasn’t perfect, and the girls had to be gentle, but it got the job done.
I plan on letting Juli do one of these canvases as well, and I think I might try blow drying the Contact paper, to get it to adhere better.
From there, I handed the girls some red, pink, and white paint, along with brushes, and allowed them to get creative.
I completely forgot to take photos of the finished products, but I’ll be sure to as soon as I have an opportunity this morning!
I’ve been collecting Valentine’s decor for the mantel I hope to have one day, and these little projects will be perfect for it!
**Update: Here are the finished ones!**
