Fouth Day of the First Week of the School Summer Holidays - Butterfly Canvas

Today's craft idea came from Meg Duerksen's Whatever Blog. I love that blog - lots of great ideas.

First Lara painted a cheap canvas from The Works (I think it cost £1.99) with acrylic paint. Lara chose pale blue.

Then, she painted patches of coloured acrylic paint onto a sheet of A4 copier paper.

The canvas and the sheet of paper were then left in the sun for a hour or so to completely dry.

Then, using the same butterfly punch which Lara used on Monday to make her garland, she punched lots of butterflies from the sheet of paper. Some were two tone and some just a single colour.

These were then randomly struck onto the canvas using hot glue.

The result, a pretty butterfly canvas for one little girl's bedroom wall.

Not sure which way it will be hung - portrait or landscape. I think it looks cute either way.

Oh WOWOW! How pretty is that! So effective Karen.... and well done Lara! I bet that looks just super on your bedroom wall. We have started on the t-shirt/hoop rug today so will hopefully post some pics at some point.xx
