I love all the different deer silhouette canvases you can find on Pinterest! I had a hard time deciding what style I wanted...and how much glitter! :) And to be honest, I didn't really make up my mind..I just started working on my project and just kinda went with what I felt like doing in the moment, ha!
I did two different canvas pieces. I found this set of 4 16x20 Canvases at Walmart for $20...yep!! STEAL!
You will also need a picture to trace onto your canvas, paint, glue, glitter, and paint brushes--I used a small one and a bigger foam brush.
I mixed my own paint using colors I had--for the dark Navy blue I used blue, orange, and a tad of black
To start the Deer Head Silhouette, I just found an image I liked online and printed it. If you need to enlarge it like I did, use this FREE site! It will print your image on multiple pages. Then I just cut it out and taped it together! Next, trace your image onto your canvas. I then used my thin brush to outline the deer and paint in all the small areas.
After it is all outlined, I used my foam brush to paint the rest!
After it was done I decided to make it a little more Christmas-y by adding a red glitter nose :) Wait until your paint is dry, then simply draw a circle on the nose using glue and sprinkle glitter on it!
My next canvas is all the reindeer names. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my stencil but you could always go buy an ABC stencil from a craft store. Then I simply traced each name onto my canvas, spacing it evenly apart, and painted! I painted the names grey and decided to add some red glitter to "Rudolph"
And Thats it!! Now I just need to find the perfect place to hang these two together!!
