Now that December is finally here we have no excuse not to go full on Christmas decorating and craft making.
I made this ornament for my tree a few weeks ago, but I'm sharing it today; how to make easy snowflake mini canvas ornaments.

What I Used:
The How To:
We had actually bought the cookie cutter from TJ Max about a year ago. But I don't remember if we ever used it for its' intended purpose.
Of course that didn't stop me from having visions of using it for crafts. I did not hesitate to slather it with too much metallic paint. Before applying it to the canvas I pressed it once on a paper towel to remove the excess paint. I didn't want it looking like a blob.
In order to be able to hang them, I used thin twine and glued it onto the backs of the canvas. If you have a glue gun then use that. I used liquid glue.
And here is the end result. Very subtle. And very simple!
Below you can see just how it shines!
I wasn't at all worried that the stencil didn't come out perfect. After all snow flakes are not the same and they are not perfect!
It looks right at home next to all that white and sparkly stuff.
And adds a little something different to the tree.
I honestly think this has to be the easiest ornament I ever made. It took maybe all of five minutes excluding the dry time of the glue.
