I wanted to share this easy to make Family Photos and saying canvas that looks great on your wall or makes a great gift! They are easy to put together and you will just love them when they are done. I chose to make a completely black and white canvas for this project. However, you can print out colored pictures and use any color to paint the canvas. All of the project needs can be found at your local Walmart. You can use regular photos as well if you would like the pictures to have color in them and Walmart’s photo department can print pictures for you as well.
11 X 14 Canvas or any size you want (
Printed photos either Black and white or color from regular or inkjet printer
Foam brushes (They have a brush handle with foam on the end)
Letter stickers or vinyl cut saying that you want on your canvas
You will start with your blank canvas and then paint it the color of your choice. Now, if your doing the black and white photos, the black painted canvas comes out very pretty, of course the choice in colors is yours.
Once you have painted your canvas, you will let it completely dry and touch up any spots that need it.
You will now add any saying that you would like on your canvas, I made this one for my father so the saying is perfect for him. You can use a ruler to make sure your words are lined up and you can place them correctly. You will also want to make sure that their is enough room on the sides of the saying to add your photos as well.
You will line up the photos where you would like them to go on your canvas. Make sure you check to see that all photos are lined up with the edge of the canvas so you get the correct view and that the sizes of the photos are the way you want them. Once you have them all lined up the way you would like them then you can move onto your next step. You will want then put a thin coat of Modge Podge and then place your photo on the modge podge photo side up.
Now that you have all of your photos modge podged down on your canvas and let them dry for at least an hour. You will now put a thin layer of Modge Podge over the top of the photos. Then let it dry completely. Your photos are now perfect and your DIY canvas is complete.
