Simple farmhouse hanging canvas with Cricut EasyPress2 tutorial.
Today we’re going to be making a hanging canvas sign.
if you’ve seen some of my other iron-on posts you know how much I love the Cricut easy press. So I was very excited when the easy press 2 came out.
The Cricut easy press 2 comes in three sizes 6 by 7, 9 by 9, and 12 by 10. it has a faster heat up time than the original easy press.
It also has a USB port for firmware updates.
Just like the previous EasyPress, it’s very easy to use with a digital display and a ceramic coated heat Place plate for even Heat banking transfers flawless.
Did you know the Cricut iron-on including the everyday, sportflex, and glitter iron-on on have a strong bond guarantee?
They are designed to outlast 50 wash and dry cycles. Now, we’re probably not going to be washing the sign very much. But that’s great to know for other projects including t-shirts.

The design I chose was already in Cricut design space. I use the contour feature to change the colors of the different sections.
I took a piece of canvas 24 in wide and 30 in long and using stitch witchery I finished the side edges. I did so by folding them over the stitch witchery and pressing down with my EasyPress 2.
Then on the front of the canvas, I centered my design.
I centered the words and pressed them on first. Then the leaves. Then the berries.
Since my design was so big, 20 inch wide, I had to press in sections.
Once I had pressed each of the individual sections I flipped the canvas over and pressed from the back.
When that was done all that was left to do was to attach the wood and hang it.
I placed the wood on the top and bottom of the front and stapled it from the back with quarter inch staples.
Then simply tie some string around the top stick on either end and hang it.
See how fun and easy that was?
