My sister recently took a bunch of amazing photos of my two girls. Molly turned two last week and Sophie will be five next month. I had two 11 x 14 sized poster photos printed to try a DIY Canvas Photo. I’m so glad I tried this out. These turned out awesome and took center stage on my mantle. I can’t stop staring at them! I really think the black acrylic paint added a nice finish to these canvas photos. They really look professional!

Time: 40 minutes hands on time + drying.
2.) Photos – same size as canvas
3.) Scrapbook paper – I used black
5.) Mod Podge – Matte
6.) Sponge paint brush
7.) Black Acrylic Paint
1.) Cut strips of scrapbook paper to fit the sides of your canvas.
2.) Mod podge one side of the paper strip and apply to your canvas. Then, apply a top coat of mod podge.
3.) Apply a layer of mod podge to the top of the canvas and glue on your photo.
4.) Allow to dry completely.
5.) Apply a layer of mod podge all over the top of the photo and sides of canvas.
6.) Allow to dry again.
7.) I used the same sponge brush and blotted on black acrylic paint around the boarder (I filled in any space the scrapbook paper didn’t cover up).
8.) Allow to dry and you are done!
I have dreams of a gallery wall in my upstairs hallway, and know I have inspiration to get it started!
