DIY :: Daughters

What better way to welcome a newborn baby girl into the world than with her first DIY inspired by the lyrics of Daughters? This craft was made for a little gal named Emma, who was born a few months ago and is my cousin's first child. As her "Auntie" (Ok, not biologically, but what do titles mean anyways?) I wanted to do something special and unique, and so I made her a little gift that she can always keep perched on a shelf or wall as a reminder that she is a colorful addition to many people's lives.
Instructions after the jump!


Materials:{3} blank painting canvases, decorative craft paper, glitter letters, and a hot glue gun.



:: Step 1 :: Cut the decorative craft paper to fit your canvas. Fold around edges and secure to canvas with a hot glue gun. Do this on all three canvases.



:: Step 2 :: Apply glitter letters, starting with the outside first and using a ruler to ensure the letters are straight and aligned with other canvases.


:: Step 3 :: Cut out flowers with a different craft paper than what you've put on the base of the canvases. Secure to canvases with the hot glue gun, surrounding the glitter letters. 


:: Step 4 :: To ensure that the letters and paper stays put, you can go over your canvases with clear-drying modge podge.
