colorful canvas welcome to our wedding sign

Planning a wedding that’s fun and bright? Let your wedding guests know they’ve come to the right place with this colorful canvas welcome sign! It’s a great way to show off your playful style and your love of DIY!
Step 1
Squirt a generous amount of each of your paint colors onto paper plates (or palette paper). 
Step 2
Paint your canvas in broad brushstrokes with the pink and orange shades. Add blue paint, too, but sparingly. Let your canvas dry completely.

TIP: Try to avoid blending the blue areas with the pink and orange ones, so you do not muddy your colors.
Step 3
In Cricut® Design Space™, create the message you’d like to add to your canvas, then cut it out from adhesive vinyl. Use your weeder tool to remove the excess vinyl around your words. You can discard all of this extra material.

TIP: Once you’re done, only the words of your message should be left on the carrier paper.
Step 4
Now you’ll use the transfer tape to move your words from the carrier paper onto your canvas. Here’s how to do this:
   -  First, cut a piece of transfer paper that’s slightly larger than your cut out words.
   -  Remove the transfer tape’s backing and place the tape over your words, sticky-side down. Use your finger to rub the letters all over, especially along their edges. This is called burnishing and it’ll help make sure the letters are completely stuck to the tape.
   -  Carefully peel up the transfer tape. As you do this, the words will be pulled up, too. Once you’ve removed the tape and words, go ahead and discard the carrier paper.
   -  Place the transfer tape and words, centered and sticky-side down, onto the canvas. Burnish each letter one more time and gently peel up the transfer tape. 
Step 5
Once the letters are stuck onto the canvas, spray its entire surface with white chalky finish spray paint. Immediately afterward, carefully peel up all the letters, then let the canvas dry completely. Very nice!
