Tag Archives: old school craft project
Today I’m sharing a fun, easy project that you can do with your kids or whenever you get a free minute. It’s an old-school craft project. Remember…
I always have a stockpile of blank art canvases because I love giving them to my kids and having them unleash their creativity.
It’s also a great way for Mama to flip through her stockpile of design magazines and get rid of them once and for all. I grabbed about 5 magazines and cut out words or short phrases that caught my attention.
I’ll give you one guess why I cut this one out. Kids.
Or this one.
After 30 minutes I had a nice collection of words.
I then brushed a light coat of the all-surface Mod Podge onto a small section of the canvas and started placing my words randomly. This took me about 45 minutes. Once the Mod Podge was dry I brushed a light coat over the entire canvas.
I wanted to finish off the edges a bit so I grabbed my black electrical tape and wrapped it around the canvas.
Then I added silver thumb tacks on two edges for a funky effect.
I decided to replace this framed piece in our downstairs bathroom. I like this abstract picture, but wanted to add some more color. I don’t have magazines in any of our bathrooms because I want you in and out, thank you very much. So this is a tongue-in-cheek way for me to provide my guests with some “entertainment” in the loo.
I’m currently working on another canvas with just QR codes. I thought I’d provide some interactive fun in the loo as well. Is that T.M.I. or what??
