Have you noticed? Sorority canvases are EVERYWHERE. (And by everywhere, technically we mean all over Instagram and Pinterest.) We love the trend of creating DIY sorority canvases as part of a Big/Little gift. They make the perfect addition to any gift basket and are such a fun, creative, personal way to show your Big or Little how much you care about her and how excited you are to have her in your Greek family.
With that in mind, we tasked SororityPackets.com team member Karley Kiker, who does the symbol illustrations for our Greek Ink line of temporary tattoos, with creating an easy-to-intermediate sorority canvas tutorial. Her canvas features a gradient background, block Greek letters, and a floral design accented by real gold leafing...we really think you'll love it as much as we do!

Press play below to follow along and learn how to make a custom painting for your Big or Little. Karley created a Delta Gamma canvas for this tutorial (her former sorority!), but her original design can easily be customized using your sorority's colors and letters.
