This Snow Place Like Home DIY Canvas was one of my favorites to make. I wanted to make a sign this year that was funny because of where I live because I am used to living up north. Now that I am down south we are most likely not going to be able to see snow this year which I am going to miss so I am having fun making things that remind me of the snow. This Snow Place Like Home DIY Lite Up Canvas is one of my favorites!
This snowman canvas is a great play on words, instead of no place like home it will be snow place like home.
If you feel like you can’t freehand the snowman you can always trace a small plate that is hanging off the edge of your canvas.
