Y’all I have been wanting to make this sign for so long (in other themes) and just did not get around to it until now. It’s June so I figured a hello Summer sign would be perfect.

Hello Summer sign supplies I used (some items might be similar to what I used):
- 8×10 stretched canvas
- Craft knife
- Brown acrylic paint
- Yellow acrylic paint
- Foam paint brush
- Cricut Explore 3
- Cricut Smart Iron On
- Cricut EasyPress 2
- Paper towels
How to make this DIY reverse canvas sign:
1. Remove the canvas from the frame. I did it by using my craft knife to cut it off from the back. Then I pulled off any excess canvas from the staples. I also left the staples on since they won’t be seen. 2. Add some brown acrylic paint to a small bowl and add a little water then mix it. Then brush it onto the frame and wipe away any excess paint. This works as a sort of stain. 3. While the frame dries you can started on the canvas. Cut off the edges of the canvas along the creased lines. Then use yellow acrylic paint to paint the center of the canvas. 4. Cut out your hello Summer iron on decal with your Cricut Explore 3. 5. Weed out the excess iron on from your decal. 6. Once the paint on the canvas is completely dry you can use your Cricut EasyPress 2 to iron on the decal to the canvas. 7. Once cooled you can remove the carrier sheet from the canvas. 8. Hot glue the completed canvas to the back of the frame. You can now put your hello Summer sign in your house. Another way to display it is by adding string or ribbon to the back and hanging it.
