Hi! I'm Ginger, & I blog over at Ginger Snap Crafts.
It's a fun place where I share my cute & easy craft projects.
Would love to have YOU drop by sometime. :)
Today I'd love to show you how to make you own
canvas prints for much cheaper than ordering them!
For this project all you'll need:
8x10 print of your favorite photo
paint & foam brushes
mod podge (matte)
(I bought mine at Hobby Lobby on sale for a couple of dollars.)
To make your canvas:
1. I painted the edges of my canvas first
& then I painted about a 1 inch border on the front of my canvas.
2. After your paint dries, apply a layer of mod podge on your canvas.
3. Then lay down your picture. I used a cloth to rub over the entire picture.
You don't want any bubbles, & for your picture to be nice and flat.
Photo paper is thick, so getting it to lay flat was no problem.
4. Then I went over the top of my picture with another layer of mod podge.
That gave it a brush stroked look. Don't worry...it dries clear. :)
Here are my finished canvas prints! Love them! So easy to do, too! Yay! Here's some more of my fun & easy projects.
You can find all the tutorials over on my blog.
I also have a fun link party on Wednesdays.
Would LOVE to have you drop by!
