diy christmas light picture

at the christmas craft party i had a few weeks ago,
everyone made (or at least attempted lol)  
a diy christmas light picture.

holy christmas cow was it ever a blast!
there was paint on the floor, glitter all over the tables 
and merry hearts all around.

 there are tons of tutorials and ways to make 
a canvas light art piece but i took it 
a few steps further.

before i get ahead of myself, 
here are the first steps:
if you have a silhouette or cricut, 
you already know there are tons of christmas phrases you can purchase or get for free. 
if you don't, you can find a ton online. 
i picked the "let it snow" from the silhouette store.

when you have all your lights pushed thru the canvas, 
hot glue the loose wires and battery pack on the back. 
be sure to have the battery pack accessible to open it up and change the batteries!

after i got everything stabilized,
 i saw i had 173,258 little christmas doodads 
in my craft room so i got to work.

seal the phrase with more mod podge and 
allow the whole thing to dry.
then add some pom pom trim.  i got this one at home goods cuz 
i flippin' LOVE that store.
i just hot glued the trim to the edge of the canvas.
and woolah!
you're done.
i know christmas is next week but this 
would make a really cute gift you think?
