I love canvas! :) I like to do all sorts of fun things with it (and there are a lot of fun things to do with it!). I also love photos (especially of my beautiful kiddies!). I wanted something fun using canvas and photos for my girls’ room. So I made this:
For this cute canvas photo wall hanging, you will need: canvas(I used 5×5″ squares), two pieces of coordinating scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, black distressing ink, black paint, 4 photos of your beautiful loved ones :), and wooden letters L O V E .
I cut 4 squares from my scrapbooking paper (2 from each pattern), next I Mod Podged a piece of the paper to each of my canvas squares. I inked the edges of my canvas before Mod Podging, but you can do it after you put the paper on or not at all depending on the look you want.
I cut each of my photos to fit on the paper with enough room left to put my wood letters on. I stuck my photos on and then hot glued my painted letters on the canvas. I chose the word LOVE, but you could do any word you like. I did this with all 4 of my canvas squares and waalaa, here is what I had:
I hung mine on a plate rack. You can get them at most craft stores or the absolutely wonderful Tai Pan. You can also embellish them with fun things like flowers, jewels, ribbon, or cute little quotes.
I would love to see some of the neat things any of you fabulous folks have made using canvas! :) E-mail us some of your fun canvas projects!!!
