If you are looking for a last minute Christmas craft for kids, look no further! These mini canvas ornaments are easy to make and make great keepsakes or gifts for grandparents.

The best part is that kids of all ages can make one! Both my 2-year-old and 7-year-old had a blast making these and they turned out equally as adorable.

I got this idea because awhile ago; my girls made giant versions of these painted letter canvases. It’s one of the most popular projects on my blog to date.

Everything is cuter in miniature form, so I decided to try using the same method to make some canvas kids Christmas ornaments!

Mini Canvas Painting

Here’s what you will need:

kids-crafts

Begin by sticking your vinyl letters onto the canvases. Make sure to press down along to the edges so that it’s sealed.

Give you kids a few colors and have them go to town, covering the entire canvas with paint. Just a tip: take the canvas away before they get too crazy because all the colors will start to just turn brown if they just keep painting and painting and painting . . . not that I know this from experience or anything!

Let the canvases fully dry.

Once dry, peel the vinyl letters off to reveal your white letter!

Hot glue some ribbon on the back to form a loop to hang your ornaments.
