    Photo "canvas" without the huge expense. Instructions: go to Lowes and buy the cheapest board they have (12″ x 36″) I believe its 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 dr...

    EASY, CHEAP DIY CANVAS PROJECT. November 10, 2011 By Jill I recently got family pictures done by the fabulous Emily, and really wanted to do something different with them. I usually just hang pictures in a frame but this time I wanted a canvas! I love them, but it was way too expensive for me. My friend showed me a MUCH cheaper way for a DIY project (we are talking $7 a “canvas”, and that includes the developed picture!) Here is the finished project. And if you like it, read on for how it is done. 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 dry, and mod podge the area you are going to put the picture on as well as the back of the picture. (I got caught up in the project and forgot to take pictures! Ha) Press on the picture firmly while rubbing out any bubbled areas. Once the picture is on there, you can mod podge the top and sides. Don’t freak out about the glue, it WILL dry clear! I would try and keep an even coat throughout as well as brushing it on in one direction the whole time. This was taken while the glue was drying. You can still see it a little. About one hour later they were dry and ready to be displayed! I still need to go pick up something to hang them with, but I think they turned out awesome! Here, one of my friends used the same color boards and did black and white pictures, and it looked FABULOUS! My other friend did white boards, and it looked amazing as well! What do you think of the finished project?
