There are so many things going on around Christmas time–the lights, the shopping, and the bustle of the season. But one thing I can’t shake is that we often need a reminder about why we’re doing all those fun things. This year I’m concentrating my efforts and energy on creating a feeling in my home based on the reason we celebrate Christmas. Christmas is all about love. About peace, hope, and joy. But mostly about love. Without getting too far into my reasoning behind choosing this word and feeling for my Christmas, I wanted to create a project that would incorporate my hope for this year so that I would have a constant reminder of the goal I’m working toward.
I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, craft, and sewing blog, and today I’m sharing this “Love” DIY canvas with you. Let’s get started!
- Square canvas
- Painter’s tape
- Gold spray paint
- Mod Podge Matte
- White feathers
- Hot glue gun
- Electronic cutter (I love my Silhouette!)
- Randomly place painter’s tape across the canvas, and spray the canvas with spray paint. Let dry.
- Remove the tape, and spray the entire canvas a second time to create texture. Let dry.
3. Paint a heart with Mod Podge on your canvas, and start adhering feathers, layering them and forming them into a heart.
