Modern Minimalist Canvas Art [+ a Cricut Explore Air Giveaway]

Beautiful DIY white and black art framed in natural wood! Love the typography and the quote. Perfect modern, minimalist or nordic addition to your home!

Did you know you can pay $80 Canadian for a print like this on Etsy? Or you can make your own for less than $20! I made one Modern Canvas a few weeks ago for next to nothing, and now I’ve made another! Let me share with you how I made my Modern Minimalist Canvas Art.

Use a Cricut to cut the vinyl letters for this awesome project!

*This project was sponsored by Cricut. As always, opinions are 100% my own.*

I will be filling my walls with my own artwork. I love having original pieces but I can never justify the cost. I can justify the 20 minutes to make this project though.

Materials to Complete This Project: 

Cricut Explore Air™ 2
Black Iron-On Vinyl
12″ x 12″ Canvas
(See how to frame canvas HERE)

Using a Cricut to cut letters makes this DIY a breeze!

Start by opening the cut file. You can access my design file in the Cricut Design Space HERE. Or you can make your own file using the IT Stylus Com Regular Font.

Make sure you reverse the image before you cut your file. Place the vinyl with the shiny protective layer down, and then use a weeding tool to help peel away the negative parts of your design.

Make sure your letters are reversed before cutting them out.

When the design is cut, place it on the 12″ x 12″ canvas, exactly where you want it to sit.

I painted my canvas white, and framed it prior to adding the text.

The canvas was painted white and framed prior to adhering the letters.

Once the text was in place, I used the iron on the no-steam setting to adhere to text to the canvas. You must hold the iron over each letter for at least 10 seconds while it sets.

Ironing the letters makes this project fast and easy!

When the iron-on has set, peel back the protective layer and you are done!

This modern minimalist canvas art project makes a great addition to any home!

Where shall I put this in my new home? I’m thinking my office… What do you think?

"Perfection is Boring!" but this art is not.
So simple, yet so beautiful!

I'm going to be starting my own business soon. I will be redoing furniture etc. so this would be great to make stencils for my projects, as well as home projects too.
