Project TypeMake a Project
- A Diamond Art Canvas (We used the Blue Dahlia, but you can always switch it out for another flower canvas)
- Embroidery Floss (Or other preferred thread)
- Two-Sided Adhesive Backing (Get a backing that is bigger than your Dazzle Area)
- A Wood Pallet / Custom Wood Frame
- Acrylic Paint (You pick the colors, be creative!)
- Wood Block Letters
Dazzle Your Diamond Art Canvas: There isn't a big learning curve in terms of starting the craft, just dip, dot, and dazzle! Diamond Art is meant to be a leisurely craft that lets you put the canvas away for later if you wanted to, or complete it in one day, the choice is up to you.
Cut Out Your Dazzle Area: After you've dazzled your way to success, carefully cut out your design, and stick it to one side of your adhesive backing.
Create Your Trim: Next, carefully line your dazzle area (where there are gemstones) on your canvas with the Embroidery Floss, making sure that the floss sticks to the extra adhesive. This will give you a clear guide when cutting your canvas again.
Craft Your Frame: You can get your frame from the Wood Crafts section of any craft store near you. You can even go the extra creative mile and craft your own! All you need are some wood planks and nails.
Cut and Place: Now that you've laid out your floss, you can cut the excess adhesive from around the whole artwork. Now you can start to lay your design onto the frame! Peel off the second layer of the backing, and after that you're unstoppable.
Paint and Finish: Now that your Diamond Art is placed, all that’s left are your beautiful block letters! Paint to your heart’s content, and then set them accordingly. Remember to leave enough room for the letters to be evenly spaced out.
It's as simple as that. This is a great and unique way to utilize your Diamond Art canvas to the fullest! Now that you're finished, you can sit back with a nice hot cup of tea, and marvel at your finished Diamond Art Masterpiece.
