I just finished up my third Christmas mantel project. The photo above is courtesy my 11 year old daughter. She loves photographing things, arranging things and making things pretty. Since my mantel really isn’t camera ready yet, I think she did a great job working with what she had. I love the way these snowflake silhouettes look with my Felt Mantel Scarf and my Mitten Garland.
I was inspired to make these Christmas Art Canvases by Jan at the Simpler Life. Jan linked up her Christmas Tree Canvases a few weeks ago at Make it Yours Day. I thought they would be a good way to introduce even more of my favorite green color to my Christmas Mantel.
These were really easy to make. I used spray adhesive to adhere Dollar Store felt ornaments to some canvas panels. Once they were stuck down, I painted around them to show off their silhouettes, then peeled the felt off. I won’t bore you with the details here since Jan did such a great tutorial over at her place.
Are you making any changes to your holiday decorating this year?
