Snowflake canvas ornaments

Pin It
Hello everyone! 
Hope you are all ready for Christmas, it's only 1 week away!!
We were quite busy this past week. 
My mom flew down from Utah last Tuesday to visit for a week, and we were so excited to have her here.
One of the main reasons why we wanted her to come down at this time, was to get her over to Disneyland to see all the Christmas decorations. She's a big Disney fan, and has never seen all the Christmas decor.
Well, needless to say, she loved it!
It was also perfect timing, because we found out we were pregnant the day before she came, so we were able to tell her in person.
(We actually wrapped up a little box and put the pregnancy test inside. She screamed so loud when she opened it!)   :) 
Among all of the fun things we were able to squeeze in during the week, one of them was these little snowflake ornaments.
My mom, my son, and myself all made one.

 My mom mentioned that she loved our Snowflake canvas art we had here in the house, and she wanted to make one too.
We made a 'quick' trip to JoAnns and found the mini canvases instead, I think they are 3"x3", and we decided to turn them into ornaments.
We followed the same directions we used to make the larger art, click here for the full tutorial.
After everything was dry we cut a piece of ribbon, and using a hot glue gun, attached it to the back of the canvas.
We sent them with her back to Utah so she could have a small momento of her vacation here, and the time we got to spend together.
Hope you all have a merry Christmas, and you get to spend time with loved ones!!
