Red White & Blue

Red White & Blue

Here is a fun and easy craft you will want to make for yourself and friends..... 

I bought these tags from the Dollar Tree, they came in a set of 2 

I used a few drops of acrylic ink on a baby wipe to stain the wood, you can also use brown paint watered down 

I then added streaks of white paint, once that dried, I added more brown ink. This will give you the look of wood grain.

I used the Red White & Blue Printable collection which has 5 pages.

 I cut out the bear.

I then used a glue stick to adhere it to the wood tag

TIP: I print on 32lb bright white paper, If you do not have a printer you can send the file to a copy place like staples or UPS to print.

I used some fabric ribbion in 2 colours to create a shabby bow and glued a silver button in the middle.

Tip: Get creative, you could use red white and blue ribbon with a red or blue wood star! 

Head over to Dollar Tree and grab a few, with you getting 2 for 1.25 thats only that's only .63 cents per tag.

You can get the prinatble right here and the best part is, you can print as many as you like.

So make some for yourself and friends, a perfect gift for your July 4th BBQ party.

Tips for displaying in your home

  1. Once you've completed your frame, you'll want to find the perfect place to display it in your home. There are countless ways to showcase a beautiful piece of artwork like this, but here are a few ideas to get you started:
  • Hang it on a gallery wall: If you have a collection of artwork that you'd like to display together, consider creating a gallery wall. This is a great way to showcase multiple pieces of art in one cohesive display. To hang your wooden canvas frame on a gallery wall, use a picture hanging kit or some small nails or screws to secure it to the wall.

  • Prop it up on a mantle: If you have a fireplace mantle or a shelf that could use a little visual interest, try propping your wooden canvas frame up on it. This works particularly well if you've added some height to your frame with the decoupaged paper or other embellishments.

  • Use it as a centerpiece: If you have a large table or an empty space that needs some visual interest, consider using your wooden canvas frame as a centerpiece. You could place it on a tray with some candles and other decorative elements, or use it as a backdrop for a vase of flowers.

What is mixed Media?

Mixed media is a type of crafting that involves combining different materials and techniques to create a unique piece of art. It's a popular form of crafting because it allows you to experiment with different textures, colors, and mediums, creating something that's truly one-of-a-kind.

For the more craft-focused individuals, mixed media can be a great way to add a personalized touch to home decor, gift-giving, and even upcycling old items. With the ability to use a variety of materials, such as fabric, paper, paint, and more, mixed media can add depth and dimension to any project.

One fun and simple mixed media project is creating a personalized journal or scrapbook. You can use a variety of materials to decorate the pages, such as paint, stencils, stickers, washi tape, and more. By combining different textures and techniques, you can create a visually interesting and unique book that's perfect for jotting down thoughts, memories, or even as a gift.

Another craft-focused mixed media project is creating custom home decor. With the ability to use different materials and techniques, you can create a variety of decor items, such as wall art, photo frames, and even planters. By combining materials such as wood, paint, and fabric, you can create a piece that's both functional and stylish.

For those who enjoy upcycling old items, mixed media can be a great way to give new life to old items. For example, you can take an old chair and use a combination of paint and fabric to create a completely new look. This not only saves money but also helps reduce waste by repurposing items that would otherwise be thrown away.

In conclusion, mixed media is a versatile form of crafting that offers a range of possibilities for those who enjoy crafting. Whether you're creating personalized journals, custom home decor, or upcycling old items, mixed media allows you to combine different materials and techniques to create something that's truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
