This Christmas, I am attempting to make more homemade gifts. For your friends and family who love photos, a fun and easy project is transferring a photo onto a canvas. After researching this on Pinterest (which has a wealth of information for DIY projects) I tried out a few different methods. After some trial and error I finally found a method which worked for me. For my photo transfer onto canvas, I choose one of my favorite photos of my mother and I which was taken on one of her birthdays. Yep, the camera got me when my eyes were closed. Nonetheless, I love this photo.
What You Will Need
Canvas, photo, mod podge, paintbrush, and ribbon -which is optional-
Easy Steps To Follow
Paint the canvas with mod podge
Paint the back of the photo and then carefully place the photo onto the canvas.
Add a couple of layers of mod podge over the photo. This creates a protective seal.
It will look like this.
Add a ribbon as a border. Add mod podge on the back of the ribbon and then over the front of the ribbon. Adding a ribbon as a border is optional.
Allow the photo canvas to dry for a few hours or overnight. Voila you are done.
All the best and have fun!
