Canvas Pocket Home Decor

I am really enjoying creating little home decor projects to adorn my home for the 4th of July celebration that is just around the corner...and I love grunge primitive wall pockets!
I had to create a little flag wall pocket using Canvas Corp's mini canvas shape pocket (which are great for creating mini banners). But a light turned on and I said ohhh a mini wall pocket with a glimmer mist painted flag would be adorable.

Here it is....
Mini Canvas Flag Wall Pocket!
The mini canvas pocket comes sewed up.
I carefully inserted my sharp scissors into the back of the pocket.
Being sure to only cut through one layer of the canvas.
Punched two tiny wholes on the corners to add wire through.
Tore a 1/4 inch canvas sheet strip.
 Sprayed with tattered leather glimmer mist to grunge it up.
Hot glued to wire wrap, then wrapped canvas strip around the wire hanger.
I freehand a flag in pencil.
Started to paint with Tattered Angels mist.
Blue: Imperial Blue Simply Sheer
Red: Chilli Pepper Red Simply Sheer
Grunge: Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist
Splats: Graphite Glimmer Mist
White: gesso
I traced on the back of E-Flute in White, cut out the star.
Grunged it up with Distress Ink-Brushed Corduroy.
Button from my stash.
Burlap twine to finish it off.
To finish this little prim wall pocket I added some cranberry pipe berries.
I love all the canvas strings hanging!

Thanks for stopping in,
Peggy Lee
