Crafternoon Delight – Lighted Canvas

Written by Tessa Harmon. Media by Noah Henry.

Christmas break is just around the corner. Without all of the papers, studying, and homework to occupy our minds and days we are about to find ourselves with a lot of free time. Between the exciting days of Christmas-filled celebrations and ringing in the New Year, here’s a project to take a boring afternoon and transform it into a delightful Crafternoon with this fun, EASY (Almost TOO easy. No joke.) do-it-yourself project.

For this lighted canvas, here’s what you’ll need:
-Blank 14”x16” canvas $5
Sharpie (try to find one with two different-sized tips) $2
Strand of 50 white lights $1.50
-Pencil
-Kitchen knife
-Your favorite quote, Bible verse, or image

Now let’s get started! The first step is to grab a pencil and lightly trace the quote onto the canvas. This way, if a mistake is made it’s a little bit less of a commitment, than if, say, you jumped right in with the Sharpie (whoops! I’ve made that mistake once or twice…)

Secondly, you’ll darken the trace with your Sharpie. Be creative with this! I used different fonts and played around with the two different point thicknesses on the markers. Color some of the words in! Add some dotted borders! Have fun with it, above all!

Lastly, use a kitchen knife to poke X-shaped holes through the canvas. Working light-by-light, poke them through the X’s going around the border.
