I love to display pictures around the home and I recently discovered how easy and inexpensive it is to create your own canvas photos thanks to Pinterest! I spent a little time looking at some of the different methods other’s have used and I decided to go the “mod-podge” way. Here’s how I did it:
Then I covered the canvas with a layer of mod-podge, placed the photo on top and pressed it down with a clean cloth to get rid of the bubbles. Once the picture was in place, I used a foam brush to cover the photo with both a horizontal layer and a vertical layer of mod podge….and don’t worry because it will look white at first but I promise it will dry clear!
The best part was getting to display this handmade canvas in my home! It’s always a little more special to have a part in creating something and it’s certainly a whole lot cheaper than having one made professionally.
By the way…
The picture cost $5.99.
The canvas cost $3.00.
I already had the other supplies.
my total cost = $9.00!!!
Have fun creating!
