Begin by painting the canvas white. Sometimes, it’s hard to get vinyl to stick to canvas, so this will help the stencil to adhere better.
Cut the chevron stencil out of vinyl (I sized mine a little bigger so I had some extra to go over the edges). Remove the excess vinyl and apply the transfer tape. Remove the backing from the vinyl, and apply the vinyl/transfer tape down on top of the canvas. You can use a credit card to rub the vinyl to help it stick to the canvas. Then, remove the transfer tape.
To add a distressed look, light sand over the entire canvas.
Cut the heart and letters out of glitter HTV vinyl (be sure to mirror your image). Remove the excess vinyl from the carrier sheet and place on top of the canvas. Iron according to the manufacturers directions. I used a folded towel and placed underneath the canvas to add pressure while I ironed.
Then, remove the clear carrier sheet.
