Cute And Simple Silhouette Canvas Craft!


Looking for an easy and adorable DIY gift for a family member? Or a new and fun way to display your favorite photos? Look no further, this is definitely the craft for you! The key to making this craft successful is using contact paper. Once you’ve tried a few of these with photos of your kids, try branching out and cutting out a landscape from the contact paper, and painting in layers. Or, experiment with different ways to pill the canvas – splatter paint, geometric pattern, etc. The sky really is the limit here!
