A fun & easy Father’s Day Project using Neon Kwik Stix

Are you looking for a fun and easy Father’s Day project that won’t break the bank?  Check out what my son and I were able to create in about 20 minutes!

We have a tradition in our house that started 11 years ago for my husband’s 2nd Father’s Day.  Each year my son makes him art on canvas, personalized just for him.  He’s painted DAD in so many different ways, that we wanted to do something a little different this year. 🙂

We created this one of a kind subway art in just minutes using the NEON Kwik Stix (with a few Metalix Kwik Stix colors thrown in too)!  I’ve told you how much I LOVE the Kwik Stix since I received them at the French Lick Blogger Retreat in March–and I’m still LOVING them!!

All you need to complete this simple project is:

-a blank canvas (we used white, but I bet black would work too!)

-6 pack of NEON Kwik Stix

-6 pack of Metalix Kwik Stix

-pencil

Begin by writing out your words (LIGHTLY!!) with a pencil on your canvas.  I had my son think up words to describe his daddy (Daddy-isms he called them!!) and I transferred as many as I could fit on to the canvas for him.

Then I set my son to work tracing over my letters.  The Kwik Stix went on smoothly and we loved the texture they left on the canvas!  My son traced over each work twice because he really wanted the words to stand out.

I’ll admit, at first I was a little bothered by my pencil line showing through his tracing–my OCD!, but the more we both looked at it, the more we liked the pencil lines showing through! ❤

I just love how it turned out and we are ready to go for Father’s Day!

We did use a few colors from the Kwik Stix Metalix 6 pack as well, my son liked the sparkle they added to the neon pack and he wanted to try to make every word a different color. 🙂

The edges on the Kwik Stix made it SO easy for my son to trace the letters and get the color right where he wanted it to be.
