Is it teething time for your little one?
I don't know about you but my favourite type of present to get is always one that is handmade and a lot of thought and time has gone into.  This DIY canvas pressie is a perfect gift for the grandparents this Christmas and sure to make them smile. It's only costs about two euros to make so you could make them for all the family. A creative alternative to a Christmas card too, if you make a larger version of this and use pictures of the whole family.
 
What you need:
Cheap A4 Canvas
Three Ice Cream Sticks
Photograph
Sparkly Pom Pom
Glue
Red Card
Markers
Paint
Paintbrush
 
Method:
  1. Choose a photograph that you would like to use. You might need to rescale the picture and re-print it so that it is the correct size for the canvas
  2. Paint three ice cream sticks red and leave to dry
  3. Once Dry glue the three lolly sticks together in a triangle shape and stick on a sparkly pom pom on the top as the bobble of the hat.
  4. Cut out a triangle shape in the red cardstock to fit the inside of the lolly triangle.
  5. Glue the triangle to the canvas, along with the picture and the dickie bow.
  6. Write a message of your choice; decorate with glitter for extra sparkle.
