I was recently planning Miss Madison's graduation party when I stumbled upon a really cute idea for guests to do at a wedding. Have your guests sign a canvas and then use that canvas as wall art. LOVE IT! It looked so easy to recreate and I thought it would be perfect for a graduation party to. Since, I was making plans for a graduation party it got pinned of course.
So I made two one for my daughter and one for her boyfriend. Both of them have been accepted to University of Florida . We couldn't be prouder of our future Gators.

What you need:
- Canvas ( I picked up a 2 pack at Walmart for under $5 they come in various sizes to)
- Sharpies (various colors)
- Vinyl and Silhouette Portrait (optional)
What to do:
- I used my Silhouette Portrait to put names and 2014 on the canvas. I just did each of their first names. I used Silver colored Oracal 651 White Roll 15" X 60" vinyl . I just opened a file in the Silhoutte , used the text feature picked out my font and typed my text. Then sent it to the silhouette to be cut. From there I cut out the vinyl and transferred it to transfer paper. Now it is ready to be added to the canvas.
- Unwrap your Canvas (I picked up 2 at Walmart for $5 but if you have a use for more than 2 here is a 6 pack Winsor & Newton Stretched Cotton Art Canvas 8 inch x 10 inch Pack of 6 . Apply your transfer tape with the names to the center of the canvas. You just stick the tape down and rub to get the letters off.
- I chose an assortment of orange and blue Sharpie Markers - Sanford Sharpie SAN30075 Permanent Markers, Fine Point, Assorted, 12/Set I set them out on the counter for guest at the party to sign a message to the graduates. Easy Peasy. My guest said this is hard to come up with the right thing to say. I think they did great.
