I don’t really have many decorations for Easter, so I thought I’d put together something that was super easy to make. I created this easy Easter sign on a plain white canvas and today I’d like to show you how to make it.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

    • Canvas (mine is 12″ x 12″)
    • Paint (I used acrylic paints)
    • Paintbrushes

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

Apply 1-2 layers of Mod Podge (you can also use paint that is the color of your background) to your canvas.  This helps the vinyl stencil stick better and prevents bleeding.

Use your Silhouette, Cricut, or electronic cutter to cut out your vinyl stencil.  I made four different stencils for this project.  You could do less depending on how you want the layers to look. Weed away the excess vinyl and apply the transfer tape.
Apply the bottom vinyl stencil to your canvas. Go around all the letters and press down with your fingers to make sure you get a tight seal.

Paint one or two light coats of paint on each letter.

After the paint is dry, remove the vinyl stencil from the canvas.

Apply the next layer of letters. Paint and allow time to dry.  Repeat until all your letters have been painted.

(Optional) Apply one more coat of Mod Podge over the entire canvas for a protective finish.
