25 Days of Christmas 2011: Day 3

Day 3: Christmas Canvases

Today I have five projects to share with you- although they all have one thing in common...they all start with a simple blank canvas.

Sarah did an amazing job with these projects - they just go to show that with a blank canvas the project possibilities are endless!

The first canvas is a Countdown to Christmas. All that this project required was paint, a piece of paper, some ribbon and vinyl. Very easy but such a cute holiday decoration to add to your home. A project sheet for this project can be found HERE.

Next up, this Fabric and Button Tree. Sarah created the pieces of the tree by combining buttons and fabric and I love the natural touch that was added by backing the piece with corrugated cardboard! A project sheet for this canvas can be found HERE.

This next project actually uses two canvases. For this project we covered a larger canvas with a piece of pattern paper, and then adhered a smaller canvas, with a rub-on saying, to the piece. I really love the unique look of this project. A project sheet for this canvas can be found HERE.

The fourth canvas I wanted to share is this Santa Canvas, which was created by using a hand print and then painting in the features. I think this project works great using an adult hand (as shown) and would also be fun to do with the hand prints of your kids or grandkids - either on separate canvases or all in a row on one larger canvas! A project sheet for the Santa Canvas can be found HERE.

Finally, Sarah created this Christmas tree on a canvas by using pieces of pattern paper and a Vinyl Saying we have available. Another really easy project for anyone to do - and the finished product is adorable! A project sheet for this canvas can be found HERE.
