This holiday decor piece is perfect for hanging on the wall or displaying on an easel – ring in the holiday cheer with Santa! The Santa image was transferred onto a pencil canvas with Xyron's Glue Stick and glittered accents were created with Xyron's 1.5″ Create-A-Sticker. The holly leaves were handcut from wool felt and embellished with fabric paint in copper using a Stencil Girl Stencil to create a modern look.
I was recently at a friend's house and she had all kinds of wall decor up for Halloween; I never really thought to decorate the wall with framed art or canvases for the holidays. But it was kind of a cool concept! I figure we're so close to Halloween now, that I didn't want to make something that would only be up for a week so I went with a Christmas project.
To create a pencil canvas base like this one, check out this video I made on my YouTube channel:
The Santa image here was printed onto Craft Attitude Printable Flim and adhered to the pencils using Xyron Glue Stick for Corners (which is the best glue stick ever!). Then I hand cut holly leaves from wool felt. I laid the Squared Off Stencil Girl Stencil onto the leaves and painted them with Lumiere Light Body Metallic Acrylic Paint by Jacquard in Burnt Orange. I ahdered the leaves to the canvas and then layered seveal diecut and embossed poinsettias I made from gold tissue paper. Next, I punched circles that were about 1/4″in diameter larger than the buttons I planned to add to this canvas and ran them through the Xyron 1.5″ Create-A-Sticker. I added the buton to the center of the adhesive side of each circle and then adhered to the canvas using Xyron's 3/8″ Adhesive Dots. I sprinkled glitter over the circles to create a pretty accent..
