D.I.Y Picture Canvases

2 Materials
10 Minutes

I am currently doing a room makeover for my daughters and i wanted some picture canvases for behind their beds. After looking everywhere i couldn't find the size that i wanted for less than $90 so i decided i was going to make them myself.
I found my canvases at ROSS for $7.99 they came in a package of 2.
I printed my pictures at Walmart in matte photo paper: my picture size was 20x30 and they were around
First thing i did was to glue the picture to the canvas with some modpodge, then i started folding the edges to the back and began stapling them.

then if you have any excess you can cut it to make it nice!

Last step is to apply a coat of modpodge to seal it , let it dry and you are ready to hang your piece 😀

    Sorry, I couldn't tell whether the photographs are printed on copy paper or photo paper? Thank you.

    They looks great, but how is this project only $30 when you paid $18 for each print and $7.99 for the canvases. In my math that comes to roughly $44.00! Also, were the mod-podge, staples and brushes free?

      BTW: The least price I have ever seen the finished product for is on GROUPON... for around $21!! So this DIY for $22 seems pretty well priced... & looks GREAT! THANKS for sharing, @Adriana Boza!

    Love the way these turned out. Did the white marks disappear when everything dried?

    how were you able to get the photos to adhere totally flat, without any air pockets when the photos had dried. I tried a small trial run using a stretched canvas and modpodge. Thanks for a nice idea - if I can manage a better outcome

    I loved it and you made it look more simpler than I personally could have imagined, and the most exciting part was it is affordable!!! Thank you for sharing !! Great Idea
