Step 1 :
Cut a piece of white kraft paper big enough to wrap the gift.
Step 2 :
Ink the patterns before each use. Stamp the patterns on paper.
Step 3 :
While the ink is drying, draw the pattern of your choice on the canvas ornament using a pencil.
Step 4 :
Go over the pattern with the gold leaf glue. Let dry for 15 minutes.
Step 5 :
Write a word or initial on the canvas ornament using the Posca marker.
Step 6 :
Carefully place a piece of gold leaf on the patterns covered with gold leaf glue. Gently rub the sheet with the soft brush to remove excess pieces. The golden patterns will appear.
Step 7 :
Create a pompom with a 1-inch diameter. Attach the pompom to the canvas ornament.
Step 8 :
Wrap the gift with your DIY gift wrap and hemp string. Attach the canvas ornament to the top of the gift.
The canvas ornament can be reused in a Christmas tree!
