Holiday Pin to Present : Glitter Canvas

I am not one to pass up a holiday craft.
Last year I made this glitter canvas and a few other as gifts.
I loved them so much (and had rave reviews from their recipients) that I decided to make more this year for our house!

I started with the idea from this pin and added glitter.  As we know, all crafts get better with the addition of glitter. 
And the other best part of this craft is that it takes about 10 minutes (or less!) to do.
I started with a canvas I purchased from JoAnns (3 for $8 on sale), Sharpie, paints and glitter I already had.
I created an organic line across the canvas with a Sharpie and started with red circles for the red ornaments.  I then covered the red with red glitter, letting dry a little and shook off the excess.  I continued this with blue paint/multi colored glitter and white paint/white glitter.  
I love the simple, just sparkly way this one turned out.  
And I had so much fun I made an ornament version as well.
Linking up with Anne today for Holiday Pin to Present!

Fun! Really can't go wrong with Sharpies, glitter, and easy :) I love how simple and minimal the lights one is but still so festive. Thanks for linking up!
