Learn how to make a reverse canvas sign or wall art using an artist canvas, some paint or stain, heat transfer vinyl, an SVG design and your Cricut!

In preparation for my grandson’s visit, I wanted to make some wall art that my daughter could hang or display in his nursery.

When I saw the “dream big be brave” SVG file from The Summery Umbrella, I knew I had to use that in the reverse canvas sign for little Dante.

Reverse Canvas Sign or Wall Art

What is a reverse canvas? I’m glad you asked! You know those artists or paint canvases you can buy at craft supply stores, like the ones below?

Well, if you remove the canvas from the frame and attach it to the back of the frame, you’ll have what is called a reverse canvas. Pretty clever, right?!

Today, I’m over on The Summery Umbrella where I’m sharing the full step-by-step tutorial on how to make a reverse canvas sign or wall art for your home, office, nursery or just about any place. Plus, these handmade works of art make for some beautiful custom handmade gifts.

Just keep in mind that every brand of stretch canvas is made a little differently, so your frame may not look quite like mine. I gave this print to my daughter and she just loved it. She even liked the staples on the front of the frame as they add a nice rustic touch.

So, get your Cricut or cutting machine set up, hop on over to The Summery Umbrella and check out this easy tutorial!
