Self-made Boat with Driftwood, Gauze, Art Medium and Canvas Ribbons

Hi there, it’s Stephanie here today with a fun little project, a self-made boat for which I used the Canvas Ribbons,  Art Medium and  Gauze. It’s made with a driftwood I found at sea and thought it will be a nice memory from our vacation.


Let me show you how I created this little boat.


1 – First I cut some Canvas Ribbons in a form of straight cut at the left and obliquely cut at the right side. The stripes getting wider until a shape of a sail is ready.

2 – Gluing the stripes together with the Art Medium.

3 – Sewing a small loop at the straight side to hold a stick. I also sewed the longer side by hand.

4 – The stick is holding the sail.

5 – Varnishing the driftwood by using the Art Medium. After its dry make a hole in the middle of the wood.


6 – Preparing the second sail by using the Girlie Grunge Gauze.

7 – Cutting a triangular shape.

8 – Using the Girlie Grunge Art Medium to stiffen the gauze. Let it dry.

9 – Then I fixed the smaller sail by using a needle and thread. The threads at the straight side I fixed by a knob at the stick, the thread on the outer left I fixed by using a little hook.

10 – I finished the boat by using rub-ons I put on the bigger sail.

I so loved this little project, it was so fun and it shows one way more to use the wonderful ribbons by Donna Salazar.

Thanks for visiting us today! I wish you a nice creative day!
