Afternoon DIY Project: lyric art

Made this for my hubby today while my little man was napping. 
I just used a canvas I had on hand (11x14) arranged vinyl letters (4in, 3in, and 1 in) I bought from michaels and had on hand for a similar project I made for my SIL. I cut each individual letter out and arranged  in a quote I picked out from our wedding song. Mod podged over the letters so they would stay better and then before it dried, painted with blue and green acrylic paint. Before the paint dried I peeled the letters off. I ended up having some issues with the paint so I made it look a little rougher by using some tissues to dab. I like the distressed look quite a lot actually!

These turned out awesome! Only snapped a few pics before the kids left. This is one of my own original art lessons:-)

Christmas tree paper collage

I thought this project with my kindergarteners was going to be a Pinterest fail... But it came together at the last minute! Definitely would be better for first grade and up! The original pin had white splatter paint but I already had glitter out so I went with it:-) sorry for the sideways pics!

Christmas ornaments

Air dry clay with sparkle paint and yarn! They made cycles and wreathed. Super easy and great fun:-) I let each student make two. I also gave some upper grades to do candy canes. Just forgot to take pics!
