DIY JOY Christmas Wooden Canvas


Do you need a little last minute Christmas decor inspiration? Here is a fun project I created for DecoArt! Their Multi-Surface Acrylic paints are my favorites! I used a variety of their paints with a wooden canvas and wooden letters to make this sturdy decor piece!

I love the wooden letters- they feel almost marquee like even though they don't light up!
