Our name in .... canvas?


My sister saw this bird print at a thrift store and picked it up for me.

Unfortunately, the glass broke in transit but maybe that's a good thing because one of the birds in the print had a scary face - yikes!

So, out came the black paint. Then, I cut a piece of canvas to size, printed a sign and ironed it onto the canvas. Ta da!

This will be used in our master bedroom makeover.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. i love it! i assume you need special paper for printing iron-ons. do you have it printed by a company or do you print it yourself? i want to know your tips for doing this! thanks, tm

  2. It's really easy to do at home. I have an ink jet printer and just use iron-on transfer sheets. You set up whatever you want to print - in this case, I just used Word - and then before you print it you need to be sure that you select to print it as a mirror image. You have to do this or when you do the iron-on the image will be backwards. I did this on a t-shirt once :) Then you just follow the directions on the iron-on package.

  3. great! thanks for the info. can't wait to try it!!!
