While I was recovering from my shoulder surgery, I was limited as to what I could do. I found some canvas that looked like it would be easy to work with and I could go slow. Now I am full of ideas to use the blank canvases you can get in any craft store and make them into beautiful decorations for the home.
The first one I did with my daughter for my husband’s birthday was a real challange. She wanted to do his family tree to use the information she’s been gathering in Ancestry and Family Tree. Those who did the large wall trees inspired me and I cut it in vinyl in several parts. It took us both to get it on straight. I also cut the “Family” title and all the banners for the names. We had a great time creating this together.
This was so much fun, I made a couple of other things that I can use as gifts or for my own home.
Paint the canvas first with acrylic paint or ink edges and add paper. Then attach the vinyl. What could be simplier? I’ve got some very small canvases that I want to use for small pictures and names of family members. The ideas are endless! Enjoy!
