So, I had the "bright" idea of taking the calendar pages from my daughters My Little Pony calendar and turning it into cheap artwork for her bedroom wall. The calendar was only a buck last year so the pages are made out of recycled toilet paper.. or something. They are that thin. I thought I would Mod Podge a few onto some 12x12 canvas like I did with my family photos. It didn't turn out so well.
So now I had 2 canvases that were ruined with these ugly ponies on them.
The other day I saw a Facebook post from Mod Podge Rocks (love that blog!), where a blogger took a canvas and made it into a Christmassy scene with scrapbook paper. Here it is.
I pinned it on Pinterest. By the way if you are not on Pinterest you should be. If you are, you should follow me and I should be following you.
Isn't it adorable? I figured I could do this and hopefully redeem my ugly canvases. I had just happened to buy a Christmas paper pack from Hobby Lobby (50% off). Here is the worst of the 2 ruined canvases that I used for this project. I tried to peel the page off and that didn't turn out so well either.
Here is my version. (click on inspiration pic link for directions if you need them)
For the tree trunks I used a paper coffee cup sleeve I happened to have. Ric-rack was used for the ground/snow. I Mod Podged and/or glued everything down.
Thanks for looking.
