How to Make a Canvas Drawstring Bag

This cute little bag will be a favorite for any child - especially once they decorate it! Kids can either paint random brush strokes on the bag, then use the Sharpie to trace outlines of shapes, or they can draw out their garden design and color it in.
  • 1 Place scrap cardboard

    Place scrap cardboard inside the bag.

  • 2 Paint bag

    Paint your bag in one of two ways. Combine one part paint with one part water and randomly apply brush strokes onto the bag, then use a Sharpie to turn the brush strokes and shapes into bugs, fairies and flowers, or use a Sharpie to draw a simple garden design, then color it in using one part paint mixed with one part water.
