Easy Grandparents Day Craft
Easy Grandparents Day Craft: Grandparent’s Day is Sunday, September 8th and due to the fact we live far away from our circle of relatives I desired to make a craft in advance of time to mail to the boy’s grandparents.
I had some leftover scrap portions of MDF from my DIY Canvas Wall artwork that have been sitting in my craft room and I knew I should flip them into something adorable (due to the fact that’s what a cunning hoarder does right?) I became lucky enough to get the threat with the brand new line of paints out by way of DecoArt-the Americana Multi-surface Satins and they are ah-making….Severely, these paints flow on like butter and cowl beautifully.
I painted my MDF scrap with two coats of the Multi-floor Satin in White Birch…I love this shade, I’ve already used almost a whole bottle of it as it’s this sort of pretty faded neutral without being stark white.
After the White Birch became dry I carefully had every one of my sons put their handprints at the wood from smallest to largest using the Multi-surface Satin in Dolphin.
I let it dry once more and the assessment becomes just a little an excessive amount of for me, I become afraid my lettering might not display properly sufficient so I took a wet foam brush and a tiny bit of the White Birch paint and type of “white-washed” over the handprints to tone them down a bit.
When that become all dry I got out my Americana Classic Stencils in Whimsical Delight and Funky Flair. I used the Whimsical Delight on the “World’s Best” portion of the signal and the Funky Flair on the “Grandparents” part.
I used a foam brush to do my stenciling (with the Multi-surface Satin in Lipstick-love the paint shade names!) however you could also use a stencil brush. The key to getting an awesome stencil end result for me it to ensure I usually blot off my paint earlier than applying it.
So I load my pain onto my foam brush then blot maximum of it off on a scrap floor earlier than moving over to the real stencil. If you operate an excessive amount of paint it’ll bleed underneath the stencil and it, in reality, takes so much less than you suspect it’ll!
I had a few “oops” spots that I corrected with a quality tip paintbrush and I also hand painted the apostrophe and exclamation mark. When the paint changed into dry I connected a few lovable red polka dot ribbon to the again with a healthful dollop of warm glue and my sign became finished!
I think the grandparents are going to like it and the men were excited to send it off-the right blend of crafty and sentimental I think!
