Starfish Canvas

There has been a lack of crafts lately (some exciting news to come soon!), but while Hunter was away on a business trip and I had some down time last week, I decided to add to a previous project I had created, but never blogged about.

Baby Starfish on Canvas

This is another super easy project that can be modified in all sorts of ways to fit any space, hence my update to it for a bigger space.

What you’ll need:

  • Canvas
  • Paint
  • Baby starfish (from Hobby Lobby)
  • Hot glue gun

First, paint your canvas.  You can paint it in a crazy design or pattern, but I stuck with a simple blue.  I’d recommend 2-3 coats of paint so you can’t see the brush strokes and it gets to a more uniform color.  Picture below is only 1 coat, going on the second coat.

Once you have painted the canvas, arrange the starfish how you like.  Since I was making a 2nd canvas to go next to another, I laid them by each other when arranging the starfish.  Once you’re happy with the arrangement, glue them to the canvas, and hang!
