Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re planning a special brunch or dinner, these small canvas place cards are a fabulous way to dress up the table. They’re not only beautiful as a place setting, but are also a wonderful keepsake from the day. You can get the kids involved by letting them make their own. Wouldn’t it be adorable to have a tiny canvas, colored by your child, from each Mother’s Day?

You will need: template printable, 3×3 inch canvas, miniature canvas easels, permanent markers, pencil

Directions: First, print and cut out your template square. On the back of the template, rub the pencil led over the back of the template, covering up the back of the design. Next, place the template square, face up and pencil lead down, onto a 3×3 inch canvas. Take a pen or pencil and trace over your design on the template. The pencil lead on the back of the paper should transfer onto the canvas. Once you have finished tracing over all of the design, discard the template. You should be left with a light outline of your design on the canvas. Finally, use permanent markers to color in the design!
