Hey everyone, I am so excited to bring you this project today. Look this reverse canvas project has been sitting on my craft table for who knows how long. It’s not that the project is hard to do I just kept putting it off. But I finally got around to making it and here I am sharing it with you.

The supplies I used were:

The first thing I did was create my design on Cricut Design Space. If you would like to use my design you can find it HERE. Next I cut my design out on Cricut Iron On.

While my design was cutting out I prepped my canvas frame. I used a craft knife to unattach the canvas from the frame. Next, I used a pencil to trace the inner part of the frame onto the canvas. I did this so it would give me a template later when I placed down my design.

My design is now finished cutting out and it is time to weed out the parts that are not a part of the design. While I’m weeding it out I turned on my Cricut EasyPress 2 so it could warm up (temperature: 340°F timer: 30 seconds).

Next I preheated the canvas for 5 seconds. Once preheated I placed down my design and gently pressed for 30 seconds. After, I turned over the canvas a pressed down for another 15 seconds. When I finished pressing the back side I peeled off the carrier sheet (while still warm).

When my design was properly adhered I trimmed off some of the canvas edges.

Finally I placed down my canvas to the back of the frame and used my staple gun to secure it in place. If you do not have a staple gun you can also use hot glue to secure it down.

And, that’s it. As you can see this reverse canvas project is a very simple one. I left my frame natural but if you would like you can stain or paint it before putting the canvas back. I hope this project inspires you to create your very own for your home.
