Additional Materials You May Want
Whenever I am working on a plastic canvas project, I find it helpful to have a needle threader and a plastic canvas hole/rib counter on hand. It makes things much easier!
Feel free to change the colors up to match your décor. I would suggest white and 2 different shades of the color of your choice.
3 sheets 7 ct plastic canvas
