DIY Canvas Photos with Mod Podge

My dad is my hardest person to gift but actually he’s the easiest if I think about personal meaningful gifts. His favorites are photo canvases,photo books, and calendars. Those are my usual go to gifts because he proudly them in his home and office.
This year I made my own 8×10 photo canvases from our DIY photo shoot we did a couple months ago.
Let me just say this was so so easy and I can’t wait to try a bigger size now, Maybe I’ll do a gallery wall.
All you’ll need is:
Mod Podge & brush or sponge
Blank Canvas (I randomly got mine really cheap at Joanne’s because the nice cashier told me I could price match Michael’s from their online ad on my phone)
Paint for the sides ( I used some black acrylic)
A photo the same size as your canvas
 All you do is paint a layer of Mod Podge on the canvas and lay down your photo and smooth out bubbles, then do a layer on top. I did two layers on top letting them dry in between.
I usually sand the corners smooth with sandpaper when dry.
The last step is to paint the sides your choice of color. I decided to use black and used some brush marks on the front to add interest.
I loved how they turned out so much! How simple and it’s definitely more economical ;then ordering online.
Seriously if you haven’t tried these do it!!
My dad was very impressed and loved them too!!
He was in LA for Christmas and us in Fresno…what’s in the middle? Bakersfield for lunch! :) Fun to see him and exchange gifts…
Thanks for visiting me and have a great weekend.
