1
Add shape the size of your canvas to plan out your embellishments. Hide before you make your design.
2
I embellished with Holli’s Wreath & I added our last name. I added Holly found in DS.
3
“Make It” & DON’T FORGET TO MIRROR FOR HTV!
4
Cut designs with Cricut & weed.
5
Press one color at a time. Keep clear sheets to cover pressed areas. Use EP MAT under canvas.
6
Use mini iron to press embellishments onto canvas. I used a 2x4 block behind canvas for pressure.
7
If your iron left marks on your canvas gently wipe away with alcohol on a cotton ball.
8
Outline the tree with pencil on the back of the canvas.
9
Mark where your lights will go so you can evenly space them. I used 50.
10
Use a Cricut weeding tool to puncture your canvas making holes for the lights.
11
Organize your lights by bending them so they are all facing one direction.
12
Poke each light through the canvas using weeding tool to widen holes when necessary.
13
Use hot glue on the back of each light to keep them stabilized.
14
Position the battery box so you’ll still be able to access the batteries for replacement & hot glue.
15
Hot glue hanging wires in place if needed.
16
Enjoy your new twinkling tree truck canvas!
