How do you get yourself in the Christmas spirit when its beginning to look a lot like Christmas but its still 75 degrees outside here in South Georgia? By making some "cool" canvas ornaments! Painted and sewn canvas has tons of possibilities.
I started with a canvas fabric sheet and burlap circles by Canvas Corp. These items are available from Scrapbook.com.
I cut two 3" circles and two 1 1/2" circles from the canvas sheet. Using Lumiere and Neopaque by Jacquard products, I painted swatches of color on both large circles, letting colors dry in between.
Once the paint was dry, I layered the snowman on top of the burlap circle and sewn the edges with a straight stitch. I layered this piece on top of one of the larger painted circles and sewed in place. To create a stuffed ornament, layer circles together and sew, leaving a small opening to insert stuffing. Then sew together.
Experiment with different themes, like I did with this heart themed canvas ornament.
