Walter Crane Seahorse Printable Wraps & Tags

Did I mention how much I love Seahorses? Well, I do! I wish I could scuba dive so I could find them and watch them myself, but since I can’t, I will at least enjoy them in art! And share the wonderful art of Seahorses with as many people as possible 🙂 So here are Seahorse Wraps, to use for empty cans or jars or whatever you can think of:

I wrapped the small can by printing two pages to one sheet of paper.

The middle can is just painted white with 2 coats of acrylic paint, and then a wee tiny bit of green and blue paint is lightly brushed on top of the last coat of white before it is dry. 😀

So if your wraps are a too short to cover the entire circumference of your container, just paint the “gap” in matching colors, before gluing the wraps on 🙂

You can then use the tags to label your containers if you wish 🙂
