These little mini canvases are so cute! They are fun art projects for kids (and adults)! Stick a magnet on the back and presto, you have instant refrigerator decorations or gifts for family members.
What you need:
- Mini Canvases
- Acrylic Paints & brushes
- Paint Sealant Spray (clear finish spray)
- Mini Easels (optional)
You can purchase all of the supplies at Michael's. They also have these adorable little mini easels that you can set your little canvas on to paint. The canvases come in many different sizes and shapes. If you are doing refrigerator magnets, you might want to look at the pack of 2"x2". The magnets we found were self-stick so no glue necessary.
We always keep a good stock of acrylic paints at our home. You can buy these at Michael's and any other art store. We also have the mini artist palettes for fun (they are cheap at Michael's).
Once you are set up, just let your kids paint to their heart's content. Sometimes we paint real things and sometimes we do abstract.
Let your paintings dry completely and then spray them with the clear finish (2-3 coats, dry in between).
Stick or glue a magnet on the back of the canvas and enjoy your new refrigerator Mini Art Magnet!
