Welcome to day 15 of my 25 Days of Craftmas series!  There’s just something about miniature versions of regular items that just make you say “Awww, it’s so cute”!   That’s exactly what I said when I finished making these mini framed Christmas canvas signs.  They’re just so little and cute!

You can make these signs with wood and paint, but I chose to skip the hassle of painting and used mini canvases and heat transfer vinyl (HTV) instead.  Did you know you can use HTV on canvas?  Well, you can and I think it’s easier than stenciling.  Today I’ll show you how I applied it to these mini canvas signs.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

Start by cutting down and sanding the wood furring strip.  For each frame, you’ll need 2 – 4″ pieces and 2 – 5.5″ pieces. Stain or paint the strips and let dry.Make these adorable mini signs for Christmas sign with this easy to follow tutorial.

While the stain is drying, open the design in your vinyl cutting software.  Each saying should measure 3.5″ x 3.5″.  Be sure to mirror the design and then cut and weed away the excess vinyl.

I used a folded towel and placed underneath the canvas to add pressure while I ironed.  You want to fill the space between the canvas frame with the towel.

Place the vinyl and carrier sheet and on top of the canvas and center.  The tackiness of the carrier sheet will help keep the vinyl in place.

Iron according to the manufacturer’s directions.  Push up on the towel while you press down with the iron.  This will give the HTV the pressure it needs to adhere to the canvas.  Make sure you are just pressing down with the iron, don’t slide it back and forth like you are ironing clothing. Make sure you have several layers of the towel between the iron and your hand.  We don’t want any burned fingers.

Now it’s time to attach the frame.  Start by nailing on the top and bottom pieces.  I used this brad nailer, which I totally love, but you could also use a hammer and nails.  Make these adorable mini signs for Christmas sign with this easy to follow tutorial.
