Twenty Twenty is “clearly” going to be a year of stupid puns and silly memes.
We might as well get used to it.
So, if you can’t beat them, you might as well join them.
Joy Iron-on Embroidered Letters are great for making creative and funny t-shirts,
they’re also great for making creative and funny signs.

- Paint the entire canvas with a generous amount of white acrylic paint. While the white paint is still wet, softly blend the navy blue paint.
- Once the canvas has dried. Position the Jacobean Floral Stencil* onto the corner of the canvas and tape down the edges with removable painter’s tape to keep the stencil from moving.
- Use a stipple brush to lightly apply white acrylic paint inside open stencil areas.
- The stenciling creates a nice subtle background.
- Stencil all four corners of the canvas.
- To keep the numbers and letters straight, use a piece of blue painters tape on the canvas.
- Glue letters and numbers onto the canvas using Fabri Tac Adhesive.
- To make it a little more “Punny”…I created glasses out of cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine*. To make the glasses more sturdy, I made three of each size and stacked and glued them together.
- Glue glasses and flower embellishments onto canvas.
