Voting is still on, so please help me out if you haven't yet!
Today I would like to share a little Christmas project that I whipped up ;)
I was inspired by a project I saw posted on the DCWV blog. (Ooops! That was the wrong link! All fixed now :)
See, just some rolled papers at various lengths. Like the one I saw, I cute the papers in decreasing half inch lengths from 10.5 " to I think 1" was my smallest. I rolled them around a pencil, hot glued them closed and then hot glued them to the painted canvas. While the canvas was still bare and the paint was dry, I sprayed on some shimmer mist (then spread it around with a tissue) to give it a little extra oomph!
Since I had two canvases (or is it 'canvi'??), I decided I would make two. One has a red gift tag, the other a green. Otherwise, they are almost identical.
The toughest part was deciding where (and how) to hang them. I ended up putting them in the blank wall by the stairs. This is what you would see if you were to walk through the front door.
I really like how they look!
