Step 1: Paint the canvas:
We were pretty sure we wanted this one to be yellow.
Step 2: Draw out your letter
I just free-handed it and erased when I screwed up (one of the millions of awesome things about acrylic paint...it lets you erase!)
Step 3: Bling it up!
Paint on two inches of Elmer's glue at a time, and then adhere stones:
Sadie did most of the blinging all by herself :)
Step 4: Re-paint the canvas because yellow isn't the right color:
And that's it!
Sadie's bling-tastic "S" is now hung proudly in her play area. I think you could do this with anything...it doesn't have to be a rhinestone letter. Maybe buttons, feathers, fabric scraps, scrapbook paper?
Go forth and bling something.
