My Mom has a special song that she has always sung to my kids. I thought that putting the lyrics on a canvas painted by her grandkids would be a special Christmas gift. And since Christmas has come and gone....it has now become Grandma's special birthday gift instead!
What You Need:
Canvas (I used an 11x14)
Sticky Letters. I used my Cricut to cut mine out of contact paper, but you can use adhesive vinyl or pre-cut alphabet stickers.
Paint (Acrylic or Crayola Kids Paint)
How To Make It:
Stick letters to canvas. (FYI, I had read on several blogs that going over letters with a layer of Mod Podge keeps the paint from seeping under the letters, so I did this, but I still had some paint go under my letters. The contact paper did not adhere to the canvas as well as the adhesive vinyl letters I've used in the past. I just touched up areas with white paint as needed).
Choose the paint colors and hand over the brushes to the kids (preferably outside)!
Allow canvas to dry and remove stickers.
Paint over entire canvas with a layer of Mod Podge to seal the paint (I used Crayola Washable Paints so wanted to seal it).
