And you only need a few things: a canvas (this is 8×10), legos or buttons or beads, paint, paint brush, glue gun
For the girl one, I used left-over paint from Carter and Lydia’s room re-do last year.
For the other one, I used some old red paint I already had.
When the paint was almost dry, I gently applied a liiiiiitle bit of white to give it a little distressed look.
(You could, of course, leave the background one solid color.)
(Or mod podge on some scrapbook paper or fabric.)
I initially only planned on doing a cutesty girl one (hence the jewels in the above picture that didn’t make the cut),
But decided that you could easily do a boy one with something like Legos or tiny plastic bugs or coins.
After the paint was completely dry, I laid out all my pieces onto the canvas.
For the flower button one,
I figured out where I wanted everything to go and I hot glued it into place.
For the lego one,
I started by gluing the legos directly to the canvas, but couldn’t get it straight enough.
So I decided to hot glue the pieces together and then glue the whole thing onto the canvas.
I am so excited about these! Aren’t you?
What other materials might you use?
