Spray your canvas using the directions on the side of the can.  You may need two coats, allow both to dry completely between coats.  

Once the canvas is dry, add the word “Hello” to the top. I had black letter stickers and since I wanted this summer sign to pop, I sprayed them with some teal paint. Some glue may be needed when sticking the letters to the canvas.

Then you can add the word “Sunshine” diagonally across the canvas.  I used letter stickers for mine.  Try to use a different font or size for each word as this gives the completed word are a fantastic look.
