DIY Wrapped Photo Canvases

DIY Photo canvas

Wrapped photo canvasses are a gorgeous way to show your photos, unfortunately they're also ridiculously expensive.
Luckily, they're super easy to make, using just a few basic supplies, most of which I was able to find at Dollarama. In fact, each of these canvasses cost me just under $4.



You Will Need
  • staple gun
  • inkjet printer
  • 5 x 7 blank canvas 
  • inkjet canvas printer paper ( I used Kodak)
Then its as simple as printing your picture on the canvas (exactly the same way as printing on paper), and then wrapping your printed photo around your base canvas, making sure to fold the edges over as if you were folding a gift.

Staple the back at each corner (and add a few more around the edges).  and that's it, you're done!

Hang it up and step back to enjoy your handiwork.

These canvasses are so easy to make that you're going to want to make a dozen, and they look fabulous alone or grouped together like this set in my kitchen,





I hope you enjoy this tutorial, and I would love to see your own creations, feel free to post your pics to the Modern Housewife Facebook page.

Happy crafting !

  10. I didn't know that they had canvas to print on, And what about the size of the canvas, does it print from a regular printer or do you have to have a special printer... or are these canvas sheets 8x11 like a regular sheet of paper lol... sorry for all the questions.

  14. HEL:P!! I cannot find the canvas paper I need to do this. Could you please tell us where did you find that type of photo paper. I have looked everywhere even at Office Depot and no one had that type of paper. Thanks for any help you can give me on this. I am anxious to get started on this as I want them for Christmas gifts,
