Hello everyone, I have a treat for you today! I’m sharing a Hanging Canvases project I worked on with my Silhouette Cameo 4. You see all these DIY versions, but these are already made and ready to use which I love!
Since it’s canvas there are several options you can do with it. Painting, heat transfer, needlework, etc. The possibilities are endless. I decided on using heat transfer. I have recently done several heat transfer projects and have become obsessed. The hardest part was deciding what exactly I wanted to do with it. I was sitting in my craft room and then realized why not make a wall hanging for my craft room!
So I grabbed my supplies and got started!

Step 1 – Iron Canvas
When I opened the hanging canvas package I noticed it needed ironed. So I pulled out my “trusty” mini iron and ironed out all the wrinkles in the canvas.
This is the perfect little crafting iron!
Step 2 – Pick and Cut Phrase
Now it’s time to find and cut your phrase! I went into the Silhouette library and found the perfect phrase for this project. I’m not gonna lie, my craft room can get messy!
Quick Tip: When doing a heat transfer project, you need to make sure you mirror the image before you cut.
Step 3 – Weed Phrase
I cut and weeded my phrase. Since the word “craft” was in a different color, I cut them at separate times.
Step 4 – Add Phrase
Now it’s time to add our phrase! Place your phrase on the canvas, now place your iron on top. Do not move the iron around like you are ironing a piece of clothing. Keep the iron in place and continue to add pressure for about 30 seconds on each letter. Then peel the plastic part off.
The heat transfer vinyl went on the canvas perfectly!
And voila you’re finished!
This sign is perfect for my craft room. As I stated before, it can get pretty MESSY in there!
I love how it turned out! This was so easy to make, you’ll have one done in no time!
As always thanks for stopping by and checking out my hanging canvas project. I hope this project provides some inspiration to make one of your own!
Let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll be happy to answer them!
