Sorority canvas’ can be a great way to express your feelings of gratitude, showcase your friendship and show you care. If you’re stuck thinking about which sorority canvas you should create with then here is a list of some fun sorority canvas ideas you should try out.
Make it Personal
If you’re trying to make the perfect sorority canvas for your sisters, then make it about your sisters. You have known these women for years now so you have a full library of facts about them sitting in your brain waiting to be used. You know their favorite color, flowers, shapes, birthstone, and friends character, so use all that knowledge you have of them to create a personal canvas. If you’re a new member who doesn’t know anything about your new sisters then this is the perfect opportunity to learn more! Ask them questions about their life, hobbies, and goals. This way not only are you making the perfect sorority canvas, but you are also learning more about the people who will become your new family. Once you have all your facts and stats on your sisters it will be time to start making the canvas. Try using their favorite color as the base and add in the little details as you go. Try not to overpower the canvas with big ideas, that will make it look tacky. Keep it simple, almost as if you’re Taylor Swift trying to hide Easter eggs in a butterfly mural.
Find a Theme
Your prom, calendar, and even your Instagram has a theme, so why can’t your sorority canvas? There are so many themes to pick from and different directions you can take each theme that you can glide right past that creative roadblock you’ve been having. Space, under the sea, music, Hawaiian, Harry Potter or maybe even scream queens. Once you pick a theme creating your sorority canvas will be easy sailing. If your theme is under the sea, try putting real sea shells on the canvas, or if it’s space theme stick some sparkly star stickers on your canvas. By adding real elements of your theme onto your canvas you are saying goodbye to boring sorority canvas’ and hello to a gift your sisters will remember forever. Try not to go for a theme that won’t be popular in a few years though, if it seems like a flash in the pan it isn’t a good theme, this means no pizza rat canvases. Keep it classic and classy just like your sorority sisters, they will appreciate your effort and acknowledge your creativity.
