First I went to Lowes and bought the cheapest board they have (12″ x 36″) I believe it was around $6.50 for the board, and you can pay .25 a cut at Lowes as well. I had them cut the board into three equal parts (12″ x 12″). I picked up Mod Podge as well, and some sponge brushes. I developed my pictures at Costco for $2.99 a picture! (12″ x 12″) First step is to paint the boards. ~ I painted the whole back and the sides grey. I just used left over house paint. ~ Next you let the paint…
Just print off any picture you want, then spray paint a piece of wood black, cut the picture to match the size of the wood. Using Mod podge coat the wood then lay the picture on top. Once it has dried thoroughly, use sandpaper to rough up the edges, then put a layer of mod podge over the picture. paint some eye hooks and use pretty ribbon as a hanger and voila
Modge Podge Photos on Wood - "To make it look like canvas, stretch a layer of cheesecloth over the photo after the first coat of ModPodge. Do additional layers of ModPodge till you get the look you want. Great for images that you want to have an ‘old world’ or ‘masters’ look. BTW: a glossy magazine picture also makes a gorgeous picture done this way."
I feel like this would be a fun and easy craft using instagram prints, a canvas, and some mod podge!! Possibly even a little spray paint and some tape to make the canvas more exciting! I might have to try it!
