I was briefly chatting with one of my cousins last week and she was talking about the blog and how some of the DIY projects are difficult for those who don’t frequent Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. Fear not! This project is (honestly) as easy as pie. You can make your own custom art for $5-7!
It’s finally Christmas week! I’m sure there are some of you out there looking for a last-minute gift idea for those you may have forgotten to put on your Christmas list. Here are some quick and easy gifts sure to please.
DIY Ring Necklace
a fine 18″ necklace chain
15- 7mm Jump Rings
Spaghetti Noodle or wire (optional, to thread )
1.) Simply lay out your chain (gold, silver or rose gold) on your workspace
2.) Thread as many rings as you can fit on a wire or noodle
3.) Dangle the end of your necklace directly above the rings and thread
4.) Wrap your your necklace and gift!
This is a gold option with ~40 rings
Decoupage Canvas Art
What you Need:
Printed Image (I like landscapes and architecture , but you could also print a image of you and the gift receiver)
Mod Podge (Matte Finish)
Foam Paint Brush
Acrylic Paint (I like black)
1.) Paint the edges of your canvas as well as the sides and let dry
2.) Take your canvas and paint a coat of Mod Podge on the canvas
3.) Place your picture on the canvas and smooth down the picture on the canvas
4.) Paint another coat of Mod Podge on the picture as well as the edges to seal the image to the canvas
