I had been wanting to buy a canvas of our family picture for quite some time now and the cheapest I found after tons a research was 90$. No. Way. So then I decided I would make my own. Little did I know how EASY it was & how much money I would actually save! Turns out you can make your own for under 10$ after buying the initial jar of mod podge! What a savings!
You will need:
- mod podge (matte)
- scrapbook paper (optional)
- acrylic paint (optional)
I used this “paper ribbon” from Creative Memories which worked perfectly, so much so that it needed no trimming.
2.If you don’t do the scrapbook paper along the edges of the canvas you can paint them black with acrylic paint. This looks really sharp with black and white photos.
After everything was dry I went back around the edges using a paint brush to make the corners and edges look a little warped. This not only looks awesome but helps cover up areas that your picture may not have lined up correctly.
