Fun 4th Photo Prop

This is a fun project and once you make it, you can use it for every Fourth of July to come!  

Example:

Example

Supplies:

  • 16 x 20 Canvas
  • A Black Sharpie, Foam Paint Brush, Pencil, Masking Tapes, Ruler, Scissors
  • Gesso, Red, White, Blue + Silver Paint

Supplies

Step 1:  Paint Gesso all over the Canvas

Step 2:  Sketch Out a "Costume" on your canvas.  I had my little girl hold it up to her so I could determine where to draw the clothing and where her hands would go.

Step1

Step 3:  Trace over the lines with the Sharpie

Step2

Step 4:  Add Detail.  I used a ruler to help me get my lines straight.  I also traced around the bottom of a paint bottle to make circles.

Step4

Step 5:  Paint your project.  The masking tape can help keep the lines straight.  It won't damage any areas you've already painted.

Step5

Step 6:  The paint dries pretty quickly so you can work on different sections and the same time.

Step6

Step 7:  Go over your lines again with the Sharpie.

Step7

Step 8:  Take Some cute pictures!
