DIY Mini Art Easel Ornaments

Today, I have a super simple homemade ornament idea to share with you, which is a little bit inspired by our mom. 🙂 If you don’t know, our mom is an abstract painter. Her studio is filled with canvases, paints, brushes, and paint splattered walls and floors. When I randomly saw these mini art easels online, I thought they would made adorable Christmas tree ornaments, which also reminded me of my mom.

These mini art easel ornaments would be a great project to make as a craft night with friends, or to make with kiddos to keep or to gift to grandmas (or those crazy aunts in your life :). If you enjoy painting you could absolutely get super detailed with your mini artwork or you can play around and just make something that goes with the colors of your tree. Ha.

Supplies:
mini art easels
mini canvases
acrylic or watercolor paints
-paint brushes
-super glue
-ribbon or colorful yarn

You could also cover the canvas with other things, like make a paper collage or other mixed media. Given this is going to be a holiday ornament, might I suggest glitter? Ha.

Step One: Paint your mini canvas and allow it to fully dry. This is the FUN part—enjoy it!

Step Two: Glue the artwork to the mini easel.

Step Three: Add ribbon or yarn so you can hang these from a tree limb. I thought the curled ribbon added a little more festive feeling to these, but you could use a number of different materials to hang these.

See, these are SO simple. The hardest part is the most fun part—creating the artwork on the canvas. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
