Kids' Christmas Party - Painted Canvas Ornament Idea Tutorial

Our annual Kids' Christmas Craft Party included painting a mini canvas ornament!
The kids loved creating their very own masterpiece!
Mini Painted Canvas Ornament Tutorial
  • mini canvases 3" x 4" (I found these in packs of 10 at JoAnn's)
  • 1/8" painters masking tape
  • tiny eye screws / hooks
  • acrylic paints in assorted colors
  • paint brushes
The first step is to mask off a pattern of your choosing. Everywhere you put the tape, will end up white:
Then paint! You can paint each section a color or some random design:
Let the paint dry. 
Remove the painter's tape.
And voila!
When they are dry, screw in the eye hook so you can hang it on your tree. Add a thin satin ribbon, too, if you like. Here are some of the boys having fun working on theirs:
Both the girls and boys were excited to make a painted canvas creation! Yay! A treasured Christmas keepsake!
