DIY Canvas Entry Table Sign [Tutorial]

Hi friends! Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a great weekend. Mine was a doozy! My little one thinks sleep is overrated. Silly girl.

So, I’ve been working on my little entry way the last couple of weeks and I am putting the finishing touches on it now (I can’t wait to show you the whole thing). For now, I want to show you this little sign I made for the entry table.

I needed a little sign on the entry table as a reminder of how good we have it. We really do, I woke up this morning and my family is healthy. I sometimes catch myself dwelling on the negative (shame shame). And too often, I’m rushing us out the door without even remembering how blessed we are to have another beautiful day. This little sign is my family’s reminder to be thankful for each day!

Now, how it’s made! By now I’m sure you have figured out that I have tons of old picture frames lying around. Well here’s another use for one!

For this canvas sign tutorial, I took one of my old picture frames and spray painted it white. This frame is the little sister to the one I used for my Floating Heart Wall Art.

Using my Silhouette Cameo I created a stencil and printed it on a piece of card stock.

I cut piece of canvas approximately 8 in x 10 in. Holding my stencil in place over the canvas, I took a fabric marker and colored in the graphic. Easy peasy!

After that was complete, I hot glued the canvas to a piece of cardboard.

Placed it in my frame. And seriously folks. It was that simple!

I love this project because you can really tailor it to your own style. You can put whatever you’d like in that frame. And it was so quick and easy to complete that you can change it out frequently!
