When you take pictures on your iPhone, do you do anything with them?
I am sure this project will be a great inspiration to convert some of your best shots into a gorgeous canvas panel art! And it is super easy that anybody could do it and I mean it!
The flowering pear blossom is from our backyard clicked from iPhone6. They came out so beautiful that I was itching for a project. It was a perfect timing too to makeover our guest bedroom (family visiting for Memorial Day weekend).
This easy canvas art projects are all over Pinterest, but I loved mine so much that I have to share it with you all 🙂
Project cost – $25 Time – 30 minutes
Printed photographs (mine 11×14 @ Costco) – $16 for 4
Blank Canvas @ Michaels – $12 for 7 canvas pack (40% off coupon)
Modpodge (any craft store) already on hand
Foam Brush/ putty knife
Step 1 : Paint the edge of your canvas (color of your choice). This is optional, however painting the edges would surely give a finished look. I used Metallic Silver acrylic paint.
Step 2: While it is drying, cut your photo to fit the canvas or for colored edges may be 1/4 inch less.
Step 3: Add a layer of Mod Podge on to the surface of canvas and a layer to the photograph.
Position the photograph on the canvas well, it should lay flat without any air bubbles.
Step 4: Now add another layer of ModPodge over the photo. Make sure it is evenly covered and do not panic it dries clear.
Step 5: Leave it for 30-60 mins to dry.
Now the challenge is to hang them straight 🙂 If you remember my “Tip of the week” , I am going to use the same tip with little modifications to have them perfectly placed on the wall.
Place the frames/canvas you want to hang, upside down in the pattern of your choice. Then take an equal length of painters/masking tape and stick it along the borders.
Using a marker, mark along the keyholes (right edge and the left edge) of the frame/canvas.
Take off the marked tape and stick it on the wall you want to hang your pictures.
Drill holes as per the marking. If it is a heavy piece use hollow- wall anchors. For canvas, I used pushpins.
Hang the pictures/frames, make sure they are straight and take off the tape.
This is a simple, quick and an awesome wall decor to fill those empty walls and most important requires less time and low spending.

Hi nima. accidentally saw your post of modpodge and canvas – i must say i got hooked to your blog! wow nice work. I had question – As i understand you have pasted the photo prints on the canvas right? is there a method that you may know to transfer the print over the canvas ?

Thank you Shruti😍 hmm do u know abt pinterest. It has lot of projects on photo transfer and what I make out from them is you need to have a laser printed photograph on print paper, becoz with inkjet when u try to take off the paper by rubbing with water, it might smear and spoil the image. I haven’t tried it,have it in my to-do projects😃
Great post 😊
