So, I have seen so many cool DIY photo canvas projects on Pinterest and I had to do one of my own! My son is playing his first season of tackle football and I have taken a ton of pictures! I thought he would love to show them off in his room so I came up with this!
It was so quick, easy and cheap! I used scrap wood and only paid for the 8×10 prints!
I started with 2 pieces of scrap MDF that I cut down to 8 1/2 x 10 1/2.
I used a TON of wood glue to attach the 2 pieces together.
Next, I broke out the black acrylic paint and covered all four sides and a little onto the outside edges.
I printed out an 8×10 black and white, through walmart.com, and attached it with a spray adhesive.
For the finishing touches, I used a stencil brush to dry brush the black acrylic onto the actual picture (all around the edges) and followed up with Modpodge, using the same dry brush technique for a textured, canvas-like, finish!
That was it!
I had to make several for him and he thinks they are pretty cool:) I want to do more around the house! I made 5 for about $10, after buying the saw tooth hangers and pictures. I did use anchors when hanging these but they are not super heavy! Thanks so much for stopping by!
