Yes, I know it has just turned 2016, everyone is still fun-hungover and broke from the holidays. But I am having a major need to create, and Valentine’s Day is the next holiday in need of decoration!
So, I present to you an
- 2 Canvases (mine were 9 3/4″ x 8″)
- Acrylic paint in festive colors (I used a pink and a fuchsia)
- Glitter (I used gold and a magenta)
- X-Acto Knife to make cutting the outline easier, but scissors will work just a well
Paint your canvases!
Let these dry overnight. I had to do a few coats on the pink and several on the fuchsia to get it to be non-streaky looking.
Create your outline! I used Pages to drag and drop a heart outline, and make a outline for XOXO. If you want something a bit different, go for it! Otherwise here are the PDFs for what I used:
Print and cut these outlines out and tape to your dried canvas. Now your ready for the FUN part (or not so fun depending on your stance on glitter).
Paint some Modge Podge into the outline, make sure you get it all the way to all the edges!
Apply glitter liberally to outline..
Remove stencil and voilá!
Fun Valentine’s Day canvases!!
Let me know how yours turns out! Supergirl loved helping, but this could also be a fun girls’ night-in craft time! Tag me on Instagram (Follow Me here) for your finished product!
XOXO (ahhh see what I did there? haha),
