Twinkling Christmas Canvas Art
Christmas messages are very popular nowadays. Whether you write a cute message on a piece of paper or carve some words on a piece of wood, the choices are many. An interesting do-it-yourself project is a simple canvas that is turned into a glittery, lighted Christmas canvas. You can pick any canvas that you feel like it. Pick any size you seem fit for your living room or for the wall you plan on using. You need to pick a thick canvas if you want to insert some materials in it. The best paint for your canvas is the good old fashioned black acrylic paint. Then again, whatever color you think fit also does the trick. Depending on the color of the canvas you can use a contrasting chalkboard pen. If you go with black acrylic paint a white chalkboard pen is the perfect combination ever. You will also need a drill and a sponge brush. And the most important accessories for your canvas: twinkle lights. Make sure to choose some battery operated types of twinkle lights; they’re the best choice for your awesome Christmas canvas with a message. The first thing that you need to do is to take care of your canvas. Paint the canvas and then sketch the letters that you want to form the cute Christmas message that you have in mind. Use a regular pencil if you’re not sure of the message or of your handwriting. Then you can write directly on your Christmas canvas using the chalkboard pen. If you make a mistake by accident, there’s no need to worry. There’s a simple tip to correct the mistake; you cover the mistake with the acrylic paint that you chose. You can also glue a message on the canvas. You can search the Internet for fabulous fonts and then you can glue the message on the canvas using the font that you like. You can randomly put the twinkle lights on the canvas or you can think of a more elaborate design. You just need to think in advance: how many twinkle lights do you plan on using? Where do you want to place them? After you make up your mind, you can start punching the hole with a drill and then insert the twinkle lights. The Christmas canvas can be hung up on a wall and even a simple nail can support its weight. The battery pack that belongs to the twinkle lights can rest on the inside bottom ledge of the canvas. Nobody will see it and your canvas will look impeccable.
