Good morning! I am so excited to be participating in the Creative Crafts Fall Edition! I love partnering with my fellow bloggers to bring you fun crafts. Annnnnd you already know how much I love fall! So, this month’s theme was right up my alley. Yay! :) As I was brainstorming ideas for fall & trying to use things I already had on hand….this cute Fall Sweet Fall DIY Hanging Canvas popped into my head. Annnnd I love, love, love how it turned out. I’m pretty sure soon there will be hanging canvases all over my house. ha! Let me show you how easy it was to put together. :) #bestcreativecrafts

First, I thought it would be fun to show you a little bit of my design process in Cricut Design Space. FYI: This is the file I used. To make sure I sized my image just right I put the dimensions of my canvas & wood pieces into Design Space & was able to “create” my project there. So I was able to size my image just right.

Then I deleted the extra shapes leaving my design perfectly sized & all ready to cut.

Then I sent it all to my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut out. :)

Alright, now it’s time to put this easy sign together. :)

BTW for this project you will need:
Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker 
vinyl (I used a variety even a little bit of glitter vinyl.)*
transfer tape
two thin boards (1 inch x 9 inches)
8 1/2 inch square piece of canvas (You could also use white cardstock or clipboard.)
hot glue & glue gun
this Design Space file

*After getting started on this project & trying to apply the vinyl to canvas, I realized that using iron-on would of been much easier! Just FYI if you try this project out! :)

I stained my wood pieces & then I glued my canvas to the back of the wood sticks using hot glue.

Then I flipped it over & got all my vinyl pieces together.

Then I started applying my vinyl pieces piece by piece.

Then I flipped my sign over & hot glued a piece of twine to the top.

All done! Isn’t that the cutest thing ever? Annnnd all the possibilities! You could make one for every season. :)
