Advent Calendar Day 20 – starry night sky canvas

Really stunning canvas and so easy to make!

Really stunning canvas and so easy to make!

Yes, it’s Pinterest again that brought me to this gorgeous idea. I thought to start with that they’d painted the canvas and then stuck white paper over it, but it’s MUCH simpler than that! You stick stickers down and then spray paint (not sure we have any but guess other types of paint would work fine) over the top. When it’s dry, you peel away the stickers and are left with this really amazing picture!

If you’d like more detailed instructions, you can find them HERE. And of course you could do the same thing with leaves or paper cut-outs, or…

...paper doilies!

If you do make one, please email a pic of it to girlsheartbooks.com and we’ll put it up on our Advent Calendar Gallery on 23rd December!
