Canvas Upcycle

Remember my Glue and Canvas Art post? Well, I had a minor fail on my first try. I was going for one of those swirly free form trees. 


I don't think I did too bad, but it just didn't turn out how I'd hoped. That meant I had a used canvas sitting around being wasted, so I came up with a new project!

First, I cut some fabric to cover the canvas...


Then I hot glued it on...


Made some rosies and attached them with hot glue...



And now I have some cute little rosie specimen art!


And since I was in an upcycling mood, I took a canvas that had a hole poked in it and glued a map to it. Now something completely un-useable is super cute and sitting on the mantle!



Ahhh, I love a happy ending. :)


*P.S. To all those sweet stalkers out there, you know who you are, I would love to hear from you! If you visit and enjoy what you see, please say hi!  :)
