Weekend DIY

Happy Weekend Everyone! Hope you enjoy this fun mini canvas DIY! 

-white acrylic paint
-pink (or any color you may choose) acrylic paint
-two small paint brushes
-black ribbon
-three 2x2 mini canvases 
-reinforcement labels 
Paint each canvas white as a base coat...

allow to dry completely, then make desired patterns using a ruler or straight edge...

for polkadots it is best to arrange reinforcement labels on the canvas and add paint in the center of each label...

allow to dry completely...

turn over canvases and space them out evenly, lay out ribbon and cut it leaving extra space at the top...
staple the ribbon on the top and bottom of each canvas

Make a loop with the excess ribbon on the top and tie a bow on it! 

-Don't be afraid to make mistakes, the white paint will be your best friend.
-Blowdryers are great paint dryers for those who are as impatient as me :)

Now I just need to find the perfect spot to hang this up! 

-and with love, a
