However, as any good crafter, I have a lot of things just sitting around in my craft supply stockpile that I can use to make cute decorations! The first project I worked on this year was a piece of canvas using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge.
I already had some random sized canvases lying around, so I worked with those.
For the first one, I simply cut out some different sized triangles out of green scrapbook paper to act as Christmas trees. I positioned the trees on the canvas to see if I liked the spacing.
Next, I used my Cricut machine to cut out some Christmas carol lyrics "Peace on Earth, good will to men". I applied the lyrics to the canvas using Mod Podge.
That's it, easy and quick and it didn't cost me anything since I already had all the supplies on hand! Here it is displayed in our entryway.
For my second piece of art I used a much smaller canvas (because that's what I had available) and painted it a light blue.
After the paint was dry, I glued some white paper to the bottom to look like a snowy hill with Mod Podge. I didn't worry about bubbles or imperfections because I figured that would make it look more like a snowy landscape.
Next, I cut out some snowflakes, using a paper punch and glued them onto the canvas.
Finally, I used the Cricut machine to cut out the words "let it snow" and applied it to the canvas with Mod Podge.
