DIY Canvas Photos

Happy Saturday!

Just do a Pinterest search with the words in the title of this blog post and you'll see tons of blogs to check out on how to make your own canvas photos!  My walls have been bare for far too long.  If you think my kids are ugly, you do NOT want to come to my house (even when the kids aren't there) because they're faces are going to be all over the place (on canvas, of course)!

Here's how I'm starting....with two 11x14 canvases that I had on hand.  I enlarged 2 of my favorite pictures from our beach vacation last year and off I went!

 I painted the edges of the canvas a dark brown for Olivia's photo and then a sand color for the beach photo. I then Mod Podge'd them, trimmed the pictures and then stuck them down and put a coat of Mod Podge over the picture.  I LOVE how they turned out.

Gotta love cheap but fabulous art work for the walls!

Hope you're getting your craft on this weekend!
