Hello blog friends! Here it is October already! Fall is in the air but I’m thinking of Christmas! I know it’s a bit early but I enjoy making holiday things now because I’m not so rushed. I’ve put together a Holiday Peace Mini Canvas to share with you today.
I started with a 4 x 4ʺ burlap canvas. Across the top and bottom are plaid and dot pattern papers to which I’ve added faux stitch lines with a brown marker. I used E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to fasten papers together and Home Hobby Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ʺ to fasten them to the canvas. Extreme Double-Sided Tape holds really well even on the burlap! At the top, I added a piece of Lace Ribbons with ink rubbed into it. It’s fastened with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ʺ. Twine is fastened in back on each side with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ʺ.
For “peace”, Kraft cardstock was applied to one side of white 3D Foam Creative Sheets. Then it was die cut. The 3D Foam Creative Sheets compresses through a die cut machine yet retains its dimension after cutting. It’s really easy to cut! Plus it has an adhesive backing! It holds well on the burlap. I’ve rubbed ink over “peace” die cut and around edges of canvas.
I formed a small wreath with wired pine string, bells and twine knot. It hangs from the loop of the “e”. Small pieces of Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ʺ hold it in place on the canvas.
I finished the canvas on the back as well with a piece of Kraft cardstock fastened with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ʺ along edges.
This is a quick holiday project! A nice accent for a centerpiece or table display!
Happy Holiday crafting!
