Now to get creative. In the video, we use brush strokes which are easy and effective. Alternatively feel free to paint any design (dots, patterns, shapes etc.)

Have a break after your hard work and wait for the paint to dry. Then remove the masking tape to reveal a nice clean border!

Measure up the twine to the canvas size and cut lengths as required. Using a hot glue gun carefully glue the twine to the sides of the canvas. (Please ensure children are being supervised if using a hot glue gun).
