- Stretched canvas
- Staple remover

Instructions
1. Remove all the staples from the stretched canvas with the staple remover. The canvas should be completely detached from the wooden frame once you are finished with this step.
2. Place the iron-on transfer in the center of the canvas and gently press a heated iron over the transfer paper to imprint it onto the canvas.
3. Peel off the transfer paper to reveal the image on the canvas.
4. Place the wooden frame onto the front of the canvas (the side with the printed image). Position it so that the image is centered in the frame.
5. Reattach the canvas to the wooden frame with a staple gun, making sure that the canvas is taut.
6. Cut away all any canvas that hangs over the edge of the wooden frame.
