You may have seen this post for instructions on how to make a reverse canvas.  It’s very popular, and there’s no questioning why… the reverse canvas makes a great project, housewarming gift, anniversary present, etc!  There’s always an occasion for a sign!

This is the design I use most often.

Some of my favorite fonts: Bodoni, Book Antiqua, Starfish, Atatila and Arial Rounded.

I have used the 16×20, 10×20 and 12×16 canvas sizes.  Any size can work!  Remember to use a 40% off coupon when shopping at Michael’s, JoAnne’s or Hobby Lobby!

I use Command Strips to hang them.  You can purchase those here: and attach to the back.

My favorite tip: after you have stapled the canvas back onto the frame, lightly spray the canvas with water.  Somehow, this will pull the canvas tight and your wrinkles will dissapear!

  1. Did your 16×20 frames have a support piece running through the middle? I haven’t been able to find any tutorials on frames with this and I can’t figure out a work around!
