For Father’s Day, I put together a neat Silhouette canvas for my husband. The kids helped, I promise. Essentially, I made the silhouette with my Cameo and then stuck the silhouette to the canvas. The kids painted over and around it. After, I peeled off the silhouettes. It came out great, but it seemed a shame to just throw the silhouettes away. Instead I put them to the side to use to make gifts for the grandparents. Here’s what I did. Reuse-reuse-reuse!

First, I took the leftover 651 silhouette images from my husband’s gift. I applied the images to a canvas panel and traced them. Then I removed them. I put them on the next canvas and used mod podge to adhere them to the canvas.

Once I was finished and everything had drive, I used washi tape as decoration along the top. I used paint pens to label my canvases. For the left canvas, I applied glue inside the silhouettes then sprinkled blue sand and green glitter over the glue. I tapped it to get the excess off.

My sewing room is a glittery mess now, but I think it was worth it. What do you think?
