HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
DOWNLOAD THE FREE SVG FILE
The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project. I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library. These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others. This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Love w/Heart Flourish . It will be listed under the Valentine’s category.
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
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.
How early do you start decorating for Valentine’s Day?
