Sticky Back Canvas Earrings


Have you heard of Claudine Hellmuth's new Studio product line? Well, it is FABULOUS and since I kinda specialize in canvas projects, for the next month I will be sharing all kinds of fun projects to make with Sticky Back Canvas. 

The first project is simple canvas earrings- inspired by the earring project in my book Canvas Remix, I decided to put a twist on the project and use sticky back canvas!





Start by printing out a page full photos, sketches or even words.  (I filled the page with a combination of my scanned sketches and my favorite words in fun fonts).  Print your images out on a sheet of Sticky Back Canvas.



Next, cover the canvas with messy paint and let dry.



Peel the backing off the canvas.



Fold the sheet in half.



Draw the shape of your earrings onto the surface of the canvas. 
Notice I used one of the bottles of Claudine's Studio paint as a template :)



Cut out your shapes.



Paint the edges with black paint or your choice of color and let dry.



Cover the surface of both sides of canvas with a glossy medium or even a glossy polyurethane. Let dry.



Use an awl to make a hole in the canvas.




Attach jump rings through the holes.



Attach hook earwires to the jump rings.



And VOILA...a pair of super fun, messy and colorful earrings!!
