Wild Card Wednesday: Snowflake Art

This was so much fun to make and I LOVE IT!!!!!
I made mine in December and I am leaving it up for January.
I found this canvas at the DI for $2 Cute....

I have a red wall in my family room and we had some left over paint so that is what I used.
I did about 3 layers just enough so that the picture did not show through.
Let it dry all the way

I found these foam snowflakes at the dollar store I got 4 packs and had leftovers so it will depend on the size of your canvas.
Lay them out in the pattern that you want before you start to glue them down.
I used my hot glue gun and went to town.

When you have them all glued on, you will have some that are hanging off. You will want to take your scissors and cut the extra off.
Make sure all the tips of the snowflakes are glued down and you now have an AMAZING master piece.

I put mine on my fire place mantel, you could also put it on a shelf or you could hang it on the wall.

You could also do this with any design and any color for a different holiday or to have up all the time. The sky is the limit. HAVE FUN CRAFTING!
