Gold Foil "Give Thanks" Decoupage Canvas

Gold Foil "Give Thanks" Decoupage Canvas

Posted by DecoArt on Nov 6th 2015

When life gets hectic, especially this time of year, I find myself in need of a little reminder to keep my mind on all the good around me. Having a grateful heart just makes life so much more enjoyable, and this project is a daily reminder for me to stay focused on all the good in life!

Items Needed:


I love these Gold Stag Decoupage papers!  I chose to use the dark brown with the small gold foil triangles.  This pattern allows the text to really pop off the paper.

Start by printing our your text.  I used my cutting machine, but you can do this by hand.

Check and make sure you are happy with the size and font for your "Give Thanks" text.

When you are happy with it, give your canvas a base coat of Rich Espresso and paint the edges of the canvas with the Splendid Gold.
