Merry Christmas! I mean…Good Morning…OR do I? Bwahahahaha!
I don’t know why I just evil-laughed. It just felt right. Maybe it’s the idea of doing Christmas crafts in October.
Here’s the reveal of my first holiday craft thanks to Pinterest, of course!
Kelsey at www.justdaisydreaming.blogspot.com had a great idea for some festive holiday art and I had to do it too!

I just followed her tutorial on how to make it except instead of downloading a reindeer template, I just drew my own. I also went larger scale and used a 12×16 canvas instead of a 9×12. I absolutely adore it! Yay! One Christmas craft down, so many more to go!
9×12 or 12×16 canvas
glitter of choice
small paint brush
download a deer template or make your own(I sketched mine on some cardstock for easy tracing onto the canvas.)
**the only things I had to purchase for this project were the glitter for $2.99 and the canvas for 6.99 and some tax.
This is another easy craft. I just traced my deer onto the canvas and painted my glue on. I did a heavy layer of glitter and let it dry before shaking off the excess. I used Kelsey’s tip, and used a toothpick to even out the lines. To help keep the glitter in place I sprayed it with extra hold hairspray because let’s face it, glitter can be a messy thing!
Love. Love. Love it!
I also found a great deal at Hobby Lobby in the fabric department. They sell sequined 16×16 pillow covers for $6.99 in all different colors. If you have a 40 percent off coupon you’re getting that puppy for cheap! Just in time for the glitzy holiday season too!
It’s going to be a sparkly holiday this 2012!
