DIY Photo Canvas

Supplies Needed:

Mod Podge
Craft Foam Brush
Photo Prints
Blank 8×10 Canvas
Craft Paint
Sand Paper

Directions:

  • Start by cutting the photo to the same size as your canvas.
  • Paint a layer of Mod Podge over the top of canvas and lay the photo on top, carefully smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Let dry.
  • Paint two or three layers of Mod Podge over the top, making sure to let each layer dry in between.
  • After completely dry, use a small piece of sand paper to gently smooth edges, if needed.
  • Use craft paint around the sides of canvas. I use a small paint brush and add some brush marks to the sides for a more rustic look. (If your prefer, feel free to paint sides first then add photo and Mod Podge for a cleaner look.)
  • Let dry and enjoy your photo canvas! That’s it… super easy!

    I use a blank canvas and press it on the wet mod podge to give the picture a textured look.

    • Megan

      Thanks for the tip! I love the idea but don’t care for the brush marks mod podge leaves!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I’m so trying that next time –thanks Amanda!

  8. Rebecca

    I use another blank canvas to stamp on top as well, really adds to the look

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Love it! Thanks Rebecca!

    Thanks for sharing. I have been wanting try this.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure – enjoy Mary!

  10. Me

    Oooh, I love this idea but first I’ll create an artistic effect of my photos in PicsArt app like oil painting option, then develop the pic. And ill try to use brushstrokes retracing the image. I bet that will make it look so real. Thanks for the idea!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh smart idea! Have fun 😀

  11. Melissa

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)
