Project Details

  • Level:beginner (6 + up)
  • Time:1 to 2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time.
  • 2
    For the Flower Mini Canvas, use any color paint and cardstock. We used Margarita paint and Blue Prism cardstock. Paint the mini canvas and let dry.
  • 3
    Punch out seven hearts from the cardstock. Fold each heart in half and crease the folds. Glue one side of each heart onto the canvas into the shape of a flower.
  • 4
    You can glue any color pom pom you want to into the center of the flower.
  • 5
    Hang and enjoy!
  • 6
    For the Star Heart Mini Canvas, use the foam brush to paint the mini canvas but only paint one coat so you leave wavy lines. Let it dry.
  • 7
    Attach the stars to the canvas in a heart shape. Ask a parent to help make a heart shape cut-out with a piece of paper so it will help you place the stars.
  • 8
    Brush on a coat of Mod Podge so the stars stay on.
  • 9
    Hooray for the USA!
  • 10
    For the Mini Canvas Name Plaque, paint each mini canvas for the letters in your name a different color and let them dry. You can use the bubble alphabet stencil to help you with the letter placement if you need it.
  • 11
    Decorate a letter on each canvas with different materials such as rhinestones, buttons, felt, yarn and pom poms. You can use whatever you want. Be creative.
  • 12
    When you are done decorating the letters, hot glue the canvases together so they stand. Use the low setting on the glue gun and have a parent help.
  • 13
    Display your name in your room!
