I decided to use toilet paper rolls! Free and no assembly required! I was going to use canvases but was hesitant because they are expensive for a craft that may or may not turn out. So instead I bought a 3 pack of foam boards and with my oldest away at camp this gave me a board to paint also :) The entire pack cost me $5.50 and at that price I wasn't worried about potentially throwing it out.
These came out so cute and honestly any age could make one. I really like how mine turned out, so even adults who just like to craft could make this on their own.
Here's the overall breakdown:
Cost- $5.50 I bought the foam boards, but I had the red, white & blue paint on hand, and obviously tp rolls are free!
Supplies- foam boards, toilet paper rolls, paint (any color you want) I used acrylic paint.

|pick your paint colors. You'll need a plate for each color you use.|
It needs to have a flat surface to get covered in paint.

Do the colors in layers so they have time to dry a bit in between layers.
