At a fraction of the price of getting your photos mounted on canvas in the store, these canvas art photos are easy to do and make a great statement on a blank wall!



finished

Materials:
Black (or any colour you desire) paint
Canvas
Photograph
Mod Podge
Craft knife

Method:
Paint the edge of your canvas making sure to overlap on the back and top.



finished

Let the paint dry completely.
Cover the canvas completely with Mod Podge.



finished

Mount the photograph on the canvas and smooth out with a cloth or glove. You may need to turn your photo over on a clean, dry surface and smooth out on the back of the canvas to ensure good contact.



finished

Let the Mod Podge dry.
Most likely the photo will not fit the canvas exactly so you will need to trim the edges of the photo with your craft knife.



trim

Make any touch ups necessary with your paint and then seal the edges with Mod Podge.
Let dry and hang on your blank wall.

A great way to display family photos, you can easily make a grouping of these to put up on a stairwell or family room wall!

Thank you! I have a vast quantity of PVA glue and not heard of Mod Podge before, so I shall give it a go and let you know how I get on :)
Do you need to use mod podge or would some other glue, PVA perhaps, work just as well?
PVA watered down to a decoupage consistency would work just as well although some people do have a preference for Mod Podge. I have used both in crafting (although have only ever used Mod Podge when working with photos) and find that the Mod Podge does seem to work a little better with paper related products. It may depend on your glue quality too so I would definitely give it a try!
