For a sentimental and personalised gift, creating a gorgeous DIY Photo Canvas has never been so easy. Your photo canvas can have any designs or colours. The options are limitless and you can even get the kids involved!
First things first, you can grab all the tools you will need for your DIY photo canvas on our Lincraft online store www.lincraft.com.au. We have a huge range of paints and canvases to choose from making it easy to design any type of theme.
Now lets get painting!
First tape around the outside of your canvas for a neat bordered finish.
Now to get creative. In the video, we use brush strokes which are easy and effective. Alternatively feel free to paint any design (dots, patterns, shapes etc.)
Have a break after your hard work and wait for the paint to dry. Then remove the masking tape to reveal a nice clean border!
Measure up the twine to the canvas size and cut lengths as required. Using a hot glue gun carefully glue the twine to the sides of the canvas. (Please ensure children are being supervised if using a hot glue gun).
Last but not least, peg up all your favourite photos and voila! you have a beautiful personal piece of art.
This DIY photo canvas is easy enough for a kids project. The canvas makes for a great DIY present for christmas and birthdays. Canvas can be hung on a wall as they are light weight or placed on a mantle piece.
