Welcome to another fun Saturday Playdate! Today we're playing with Kassandra from Coffee and their Kisses. I am really digging the craft blogs lately, and I am in awe of some of these women and the things they can make. Kassandra's blog is one of those craft blogs. She posts all kinds of craft and DIY ideas, and also blogs about her life as a SAHM to her adorable little Nickalaus.
When you're done here, please check out Coffee and their Kisses. Leave Kassandra some comment love and let her know you stopped by from the Playdate.
Hello! I'm Kassandra from Coffee and their Kisses. I am so excited to be guest posting here at LeeAnn's blog. Some of y'all may not be familiar with me, since I have only been around since February. I have been making my way around blogland and getting to know people. Anyways, lets get on to the good stuff why don't we?
So I saw this cute idea on Pinterest, which I'm obsessed with.
The original idea came from Pottery Barn Kids. I don't know about you, but I'm am not paying $69 for something that my son is going to grow out of eventually. Sorry! So of course, you know what I did, right? Made my own :o)
So here's what you need to get started: Canvas [mine's 8x10], scissors, stickers, printed image, Mod Podge, foam brush, and a bowl to pour the Mod Podge in.
After you cut your image [as close to the actual picture], then you need to position it where you want it on the canvas. Don't use the Mod Podge yet! You want to make sure everything is where you want it first.
Now you need to get the stickers out. Since I have an airplane, we're obviously using the "A" and "airplane" letters. Just lay them out like you did the airplane image first. And don't stick them down too hard, not that they stick to canvas well anyways.
Okay, now you have all your stickers and image where you want it. Now you can use the Mod Podge. Be very easy and do the backside of the airplane image first. Make sure you put a good amount and that there aren't any air pockets. Go over the image and letters very easily. I also did 2 coats on the top of everything.
My son, Nickalaus, had an airplane image that I had printed too small. He was making his own to put on my door. Sweet of him right? Plus he's rockin those Cars underwear as well.
Let it dry for a couple hours or so, I don't know the exact time because I was crazy busy when doing this. Then you have this awesomeness. Yeah, I noticed the "ane" in the lettering is a little crooked, but I can never make a straight line. LOL!
I love the way it turned out and so does Nick! The project didn't cost me anything, because I had everything on hand. If you had to buy all of your supplies though, I'd say about $10 max for the whole project. So you save $59!!! At Hobby Lobby the canvas prints come in 2 packs, so you could grab 2 if you wanted to do the ABC's. I'll probably do 4 of them total to go along with Nick's room that I just finished painting.
I hope y'all enjoyed my guest post. I wanted to go along with LeeAnn's theme of a kid's craft, but my mind was blank, so this was the next best thing. If anyone makes their own, I would be tickled to see your result. I hope to see y'all over at Coffee and their Kisses, as I love to make new friends! Thank you so much LeeAnn for this opportunity!! I really appreciate it.
Thanks for stopping by for our Playdate! I hope you had fun! If you would like to come over for a Playdate, let me know in a comment or an email.
