Painted Paper Roll Canvases: A Canvas Corp Brands Kid's Craft Tutorial

Painted Paper Roll Canvas Kids Craft Tutorial by Dana Tatar

Hi! I'm sharing a fun tutorial for Canvas Corp Brands today. My daughters and I have been saving up empty paper rolls to use for art projects. The recent snow storm gave us the perfect excuse to spend some time crafting together and cut into our empty paper roll stash! We had a blast designing and painting these colorful canvases together! We used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Glam, and Glaze to color our canvases, but watercolor or acrylic paint would also work great.

Step One: Cut the empty paper rolls into 1/4-inch pieces. Arrange the pieces on the canvas in a pleasing design. Use a hot glue gun to attached the pieces of paper roll to the canvas. Note: Parental guidance is recommended for this step. I used the hot glue gun to attach the paper rolls to the canvases to help avoid burned fingers.

Step Two: Run a wet paintbrush over the canvas to help with color absorption. Use a paintbrush to apply Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glam, and Glimmer Glaze to the canvas.

Step Three: Continue brushing spray mist over the canvas until the entire piece is painted. Rinse the paintbrush between colors. If necessary, apply clean water to the canvas with a paintbrush to help spread the color. Let dry.
