I’m truckin’ right along on the reverse canvas sign bandwagon, and I’m not ashamed. They are so dang cute and add a lot of character to any room. I covered how I create my designs in Cricut Design space here. That’s where you need to start if you are new to reverse canvas sign making. This is step 2 of the process and, hopefully you’ll get a pretty good idea of what the finished product will look like.
Some things you’ll need before you start:
- A Canvas. I find my canvas’ on Amazon because I’m able to find the best deals there. If you are planning on making several, either for yourself or as gifts, you’ll save the most money buying them in bulk. I use these because the frames are great quality and they are easy to break down.
- Your pre-cut heat transfer vinyl design.
- An Iron or a Heat press. I use an iron, and that’s just about all our iron gets used for these days.
- Wax Paper.
- A Flathead Screw Driver.
- Staple Gun and Staples- The wood is pretty soft so you might be able to get away with using a regular stapler.
- X-acto blade, or some type of box cutter.
- Hardware for hanging your sign. You can find the ones I use in the video here.
- Paint or Stain
- Extra details for your frame: In this video I use bows that I made following Erin’s super easy bow tutorial that you can find here. Seriously the cutest bows EVER!
- If you plan to attach anything to your frame, you’ll want a hot glue gun as well.
Watch the video below to see step by step instructions on how to make your reverse canvas sign with everything listed above! The angle of the camera is less than flattering, but I get all of the steps in there for y’all and hopefully after watching it you’ll be able to hop on the reverse canvas bandwagon with me!
Below are examples of Reverse Canvas Signs I made, and the completed signs from the video tutorial.
