Well welcome December!
I just have to say, I love the sparkly-ness of this craft.
It seems like at Christmas time everything has a little sparkle to it :)
My son and I made these up the other day to add some more Christmas decor to our home.
It's a fun craft to do with kids because they can just go nuts with the paint :)
Our Christmas tree ornaments are kind of snowflake themed. The colors on our ornaments are white, silver, and different shades of blue, so this new pieces match perfectly.
I had purchased these two 8x10 canvases, (on sale and with a coupon of course), from Michael's a while ago, I was going to do another craft with them, but never got around to it.
I decided to use them for this craft because I wanted to be able to use these as decor for years to come
Supplies you'll need
acrylic paints (we used white, a dark blue, and a medium blue)
tape (we used regular scotch tape)
First tape out your 'snowflake' (if you look hard enough you can see it!)
Then just paint!
Look at my little helper go!
He thought it was so fun to use 2 paintbrushes at the same time :)
My son also reminded me that we needed to paint the sides of the canvas as well.
Once it's completely dry peel off the tape
I decided to add some more white lines to make it look more snowflake-y, so I just used the white paint and a paintbrush.
Grab your modge podge, or regular Elmer's glue, and some glitter
'Paint' the modge podge to the white area of the snowflake only, and then sprinkle on the glitter.
I 'painted' on the modge podge, and I let my son do the glitter.
It was so cute, he kept telling me he was Glitter Man.
I think Glitter Man sounds like the best super hero ever!
It made me smile :)
I had newspaper under the canvas, so when we were done sprinkling on the glitter I just held it up and tapped on the sides of the canvas, and the excess glitter came off. I then folded up the newspaper and poured the rest of the glitter back into the jar.
Let it dry completely,
and you're done!
