25 Days of Christmas: Day 10

Day 10: Family Canvas Collage - I couldn't think of a better gift for a family member, than this canvas. You can easily customize it to coordinate with ones home decor.

  • 12x24 canvas
  • acrylic paint
  • Xyron sticker maker 250 or larger (optional)
  • Mod Podge or Ultra Seal
  • 5 to 6 different 12x12 sheets of double-sided paper cut into 2x2 squares
  • Vinyl saying- Family what is done in love... - Vinyl Words
  1. On front of canvas paint in about 1" all away around. Also, paint all 4 sides.
  2. Lay out the 2x2 squares on your canvas the way you want it arranged using the front and backs of the squares to add more variety to the collage.
  3. If using Xyron sticker maker run your squares face side up through the machine, then peel off and apply them to the canvas. Or you can apply the squares to the canvas with Mod Podge or Ultra seal. Let Dry.
  4. Following directions on package apply vinyl to the canvas.
Crafts Direct has a large variety of different vinyl saying that could be used in place of this one. We, also, carry all the other supplies you need to complete this project.
