Endless Bliss | Happy Lifestyle Blog: DIY chevron and glitter countries.

DIY chevron and glitter countries.

Since it was so cold this weekend, I decided that I would spend it inside, avoiding going out at all costs. I stayed in my PJs, read a whole bunch, and got a little crafty! I was inspired by the canvases that I saw on Emily's Etsy shop and decided to try to make some of my own. I chose four countries with unique shapes, all ones that I would like to visit one day - Australia, England, Italy, and South Africa. I took the pictures with my phone, so sorries for the bad quality.
Materials:
Mod Podge
Glitter (I used gold glitter that I got from Wal-Mart)
Paint (I used navy and vintage white)
Paint brush
Canvases
Pencil
Steps:
1. I started by printing out pictures of the countries' outlines and traced them onto the canvas.
2. Next, I drew a chevron pattern around the country's outline.

3. I painted the vintage white chevron stripes first.

4. Then I painted the rest of the chevron stripes navy. I had to do two layers of the navy.

5. Next, I mixed one part mod podge and two parts gold glitter together.

6. I painted the mixture to fill in the country's drawing. I did two thick layers. Just do it until there are no more white spots!

7. And voila! Done! Admire your masterpiece!

  11. I love this craft idea!! I think my four picks would be Italy, France, South Korea, and the U.S., since those are the four countries I have lived in.

  12. That's so awesome! I haven't been to any of the countries that I did, but they're the top countries on my to-visit list, and luckily, I'll be going to Italy and England this summer! I wanted to do the Philippines because I'm half Filipino, but all the little islands just got too complicated!
