Christmas Canvases

Looking for more Christmas crafts… how about some Christmas canvases?  Here is a blog post showing lots of Christmas options.  These make great gifts too!

It’s about time I wrap up my College Station visit from November.  The last thing I have to show y’all is the canvas painting that happened.  I went and visited my friend Kathryn in Huntsville and she had canvases on the brain.  After some “uh ohs” and worried looks, her finished products turned out beautifully!

She painted a burnt orange backdrop with simple Christmas trees for her mom, an LSU themed ornament, vintage holly, and a Christmas tree for her Sam family.

Because I can’t paint words very well, she had her friend paint words on the tree canvases. They look gorgeous!

I painted a couple canvases that day.  My favorite is the light bulb.  The ornament is a little funky!

I can’t wait to copy Kathryn’s holly!

I think it would look great with a little “Merry Christmas” in the bottom corner.  Look at that beautiful vintage feel!

Our finished products completed all in 6 hours!  Not too shabby considering the canvases were not gooed prior to me arriving, we blew a breaker running two hair dryers at once to dry the canvases, me running an hour late, and Kathryn having a football game she couldn’t miss that night.

Once I got back to College Station, Megan was in a artsy mood and knew her mom wanted some canvases for Christmas gifts.  We had a quick run to Michael’s and Hobby Lobby before they closed at 9 p.m. and then our assembly line began.

Goo, dry, paint background, stripes, foreground, swirls, words, sprays, and glitter.  Done!

The Aggie ornament on the top right corner just might be my favorite or the stripe background joy.  I can’t resist maroon and a tiny “gig ’em.”

Megan’s favorite was the peace sign painted for a 13 year old girl.

That College Station weekend was cram packed of visits with friends, canvases, shiny gold rings, and baking.  And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
