I made this wall hanging for our nursery. We are decorating in owls and gender neutral colors. This was so fun to make and I was really happy with the way it turned out! It looks super cute hanging in the nursery now!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • 12 x 12 stretched canvas
  • cream colored acrylic paint
  • card stock in colors of choice
  • sticker maker
  • tacky glue
  • owl stickers (for owl in tree)

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Paint the front and sides of canvas with 2 - 3 coats of acrylic paint, letting dry completely in between each coat.
Meanwhile, cut out letters, tree, leaves, and owl parts. I cut the "owl" letters at 3.5," "always" was cut at 2," and "love" and "you" were cut at 1.5." The cricut was set at 8" for the tree and the leaves. I found the owl on the create a critter 2 cartridge, but i didn't want to spend the money and i had just discovered CCR! so i searched until i found the owl that i wanted ($.84). I cut his body parts out at 3." (I think)
Run all die cuts through a sticker maker. (My sticker maker is only 5" so my tree wouldn't fit in. When I was ready to put it on the canvas, I painted the back with tacky glue.) Put leaves (and owl sticker if desired...I found mine at Joanns for $1.99. it was 3D but i took the top layer off so it was flat.) on tree and put the owl body parts together.
Now we are ready to put everything on the canvas. I started with the "owl" letters. After that I put on "always" and then the tree. Next I put on "you" and then "love." Lastly I put the owl on.
For a final step you can take tacky glue mixed with warm water, or mod podge and paint over the entire canvas. I haven't done this to mine yet because i'm trying to decide if i want to. I don't want the die cuts to fall off or get dirty and dusty. however, I don't want the glue to fade the colors of my paper. I want the colors to be bright and bold. I can't decide what to do...
Hang on the wall and ENJOY!!!!
