Plastic canvas is a type of needlepoint that involves stitching yarn through loosely-woven sheets of plastic or vinyl. Due to the rigid, durable construction of the finished items, plastic canvas is a popular medium for functional crafts such as tissue box covers and coasters, as well as for Christmas ornaments and other holiday decorations.
