  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the Mod Podge.
  • 2
    Adhere the burlap to the canvas, trimming any excess.
  • 3
    Begin with the small square shape. Trim fall-themed cardstock or decorative paper to fit the top of the shapes. Or, use paper punches in the shape(s) of your choice. (Tip: make sure your letter stickers will fit on the shape before you start project.)
  • 4
    Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the tops of the shapes and to the back of the fall-themed cardstock or decorative paper. Position the fall-themed cardstock or decorative paper on the shapes. Smooth with your fingers. Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry 2 hours.
  • 5
    Attach a letter sticker to the center of the shapes. Cover the shapes with Dimensional Magic. Begin around the outer edge and fill until the entire shape is covered. Dry for 24 hours in an undisturbed and non-drafty place. (Tip: while the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.)
  • 6
    Tie yarn through the holes on the shapes. Using the same yarn, sew a row of straight stitches through the canvas. This will be what holds up the "thankful" banner. Hot glue the shapes across the stitched line.
  • 7
    Attach the photo to the canvas by using a drop of hot glue in each corner. Add silk flowers and buttons to the design. Tie a piece of leather lacing around the outer edge of the canvas.
