Spring has Sprung!

I absolutely love spring! The weather is warmer, everything is in bloom, and you can finally shed those winter clothes! Spring printables are a great way to bring a little warmth inside your home, without putting a dent in your budget. If you aren’t familiar with using printables in decor, it may be a little intimidating. I just started using them in my home and it took me a while to figure out how to make a 6×9 printable on the mantle not look plain and boring. ┬áThe solution…use 8×10 canvas boards, paint, and a little modge podge! Modge podge is a wonderful craft tool and if you’ve never used it, this project is a great way to start.

What you need:

8×10 Canvas Board

Paint & Brush

2 6×9 Spring Printables

Modge Podge

First, I painted my canvas. I decided to use bright pink and a really nice sea blue to create a bright bold look.

Next I printed off my 6×9 spring printables. You can find both in our shop @TheLovelyHomeParty and they download instantly to your computer, tablet, or phone. When printing, I chose to use 8.5 x 11 glossy photo paper because I knew it would hold up to the modge podge.

After I printed off my images and my canvas’s dried, I used a paint brush and covered the entire canvas in modge podge. Make sure to spread the modge podge evenly, but be generous! You want to make sure your image sticks to the canvas. Next place the printable in the center of the canvas, and spread modge podge across the entire image, and even onto the canvas. You want to make sure that the image is completely covered with modge podge because this will adhere it to the canvas, and give your printable a little texture.

To Finish, just wait for everything to dry, and find the perfect spot for it to go! I used our mantle and the printables provided a great pop of color right in time for Easter.
