A Fun Gift Idea...

Valentine's Day is coming up soon.  Really soon.  If you're looking for a fun, easy, quick, inexpensive gift idea, look at this one.

All you need is a picture - one of you and your loved one or one of your favorite vacation spot would be fun for Valentine's Day, a foam brush, Mod Podge & canvas (flat or wrapped - I have used both).  Optional supplies included ribbon or decorative tape & glitter spray.

Spread Mod Podge on your canvas with a foam brush then place the picture on top.  Then brush the picture with 2-3 coats of the Mod Podge (let dry between coats).  Once that is totally dry lightly spray the picture with the glitter spray (I used Krylon in silver).  If you are using the wrapped canvas you can finish off the edges with the ribbon or tape (see below).

That's it!  A fun give that's ready to give.  I have given these and people LOVE them.  This is also fun for older kids to do (would be a fun teacher's gift for the end of the year).

I used decorative tape on the edge of this for a little whimsy.  I got this at Michaels on clearance - it is their American Girl brand - I am sure you can find other brands as well.

I didn't use the glitter on this picture but I used it on the snowy picture at top.

There are so many possibilities for this project.  You can do any size photo/canvas.  A collage would be so fun, too.

Thanks for stopping by. I like the canvas idea, I would love to do an over sized one in black and white of the kids. I read about the eating out of the pantry, we try to do this at least once or twice a month. My favorite is when I have to use up some of my baking products, cupcakes for breakfast?
