Reverse Canvas Vinyl Sign by Karen

Hello!  Karen joining you today with something I just whipped up!  Pun intended! 

This was such a fun project to create! 

The bright colors of vinyl really make it stand out against the rustic frame.

When applying vinyl to canvas, the key is to prep your canvas - either with a layer of paint or spray it with a sealer before attempting to apply your vinyl. For my project, I sprayed the canvas with a spray adhesive after removing it from the frame and before cutting my vinyl.

Once the frame was dried and ready, the last step was re-attaching the canvas to the back of the frame. A very easy project with great results!
