This is a fun project and once you make it, you can use it for every Fourth of July to come!
- 16 x 20 Canvas
- A Black Sharpie, Foam Paint Brush, Pencil, Masking Tapes, Ruler, Scissors
- Gesso, Red, White, Blue + Silver Paint
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.
Step 3: Trace over the lines with the Sharpie
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.
Step 5: Paint your project. The masking tape can help keep the lines straight. It won't damage any areas you've already painted.
Step 6: The paint dries pretty quickly so you can work on different sections and the same time.
Step 7: Go over your lines again with the Sharpie.
Step 8: Take Some cute pictures!
