Our house is officially decked out for Christmas. Which led to me trying out our first holiday craft, reindeer art. It was not only easy, but free! I already had everything I needed:).
For supplies, I had an old canvas, white and grey paint, and white contact paper. I started by looking at reindeer silhouettes on pinterest. Once I figured out the look I was going for, I pulled out some scratch paper. I drew a deer with antlers, but only liked one side of it. So I cut it in half, flipped it over and traced a mirror image. I then cut the drawing out, and used that as a stencil to draw it onto the contact paper. I cut the silhouette out of the contact paper and set it to the side.
The canvas I used had a picture painted on it, so I first painted the canvas white. Once that dried, I put the silhouette onto the canvas. I made sure the contact paper was stuck down really good to avoid bleeding, and then painted over the entire canvas with the grey paint. I added 2 coats of the paint, and let it dry a bit. Then, I peeled the contact paper off and was left with a white deer silhouette.
The entire project was simple, and I think it helps make the kitchen look a little more Christmas-y!
