12th (& final) Handmade Gift Idea for Christmas brought to us by Heather

Decorating with a canvas can be a fun and fairly simple way to add a beautiful touch to your holidays.
Begin with a plain white canvas in your preferred size and an assortment of mists and spritzs. I used Maya Mists and Smooch Spritz for my canvas.

Experiment with the colours until you have an effect that you are satisfied with.

The next step is to decorate your canvas in whatever manner you would like. I wanted to create a Merry Christmas canvas so I pulled out my Merry Christmas Quickutz dies and some scraps from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy line. I then used some Bazzill cardstock along with two of the new Lifestyle Crafts dies -- Branches & Berries, and Holly. I arranged my pieces on the canvas and moved them around until I was pleased with the arrangement, than adhered them.

To finish off my canvas I created berries using Dimensional Pearls, added Stickles to my holly berries, and highlighted the words with my glitter pen.

We hope you have enjoyed the DT's 12 Handmade Gift Ideas for Christmas. Thanks for visiting with us each day We'd love to see some of the fabulous handmade gifts that you have created for your friends and family.
