Free Love SVG
Love Makes This House a Home, what a beautiful, meaningful quote. I have always been a fan of quotes that can touch you with very few words. Are you like that? Do you read a quote and feel it immediately? This one does that for me. This free SVG would be perfect for so many projects. I used it to create a fun reverse canvas. Watch the video tutorial and learn how to make a reverse canvas sign for your home. These stretched canvases are so versatile! The ones I found at the Dollar Tree are so lightweight and perfect for small signs! Great for creating projects for craft shows, and light enough to sell online and ship reasonably!
My reverse canvas
I love how it turned out, and I love even more that I could use the adhesive spray to hold the frame onto the canvas. No fear of my staples poking through my wood! I don’t know about you, but I’m awful when it comes to using my staple gun on small wooden frames! You will see in the video tutorial that I did not use staples to reattach the canvas as I had previously planned. Instead, I used the adhesive spray, and it worked great!
I no longer make physical products to sell, but there was a time when I sold my wares online and did craft shows. The craft shows were many years ago, and back then, there was no ordering in bulk from places like the Dollar Tree. I love that you can order things in cases and that you can have them shipped to you or the store!
⭐Here is a tip from one crafter to all of you crafters ORDER YOUR SUPPLIES EARLY!! The veteran crafters are already prepping for Christmas. Craft shows (and online orders) can start as early as September. Do not wait to order your supplies! You will see crafters in a panic, posting that they need this or that and can’t find it. Yes, some seasonal things may not be available yet, but if you make things with year-round items, don’t wait to buy!
