DIY canvas board print

Published October 28, 2017, by Ann-Charlotte Geissler

This idea came out of the need to give away photos to the grandparents. There is a constant begging for photos of Nancy. I had small canvas boards at home, 10 x 10 cm. (It may have been me buying them because they were cute. Anyway, I found a way to use them.) And I decided to try and decoupage a photo of Nancy onto the canvas board. Success! It turned out really great.

But since I gave them away I needed to do some for myself.  I had a series of photos of Nancy that I wanted to print for this project. We are at Skansen and she had just gotten candy-floss. She was one happy kid!

Unfortunately, my camera may have given up. The focus seems to be out of order. Sorry about the fuzzy photos.

For this project I needed:

  • 2 A4 photo papers
  • printer Canon MS 7700-series
  • decoupage glue
  • 3 canvas boards, 10×10 cm
  • string
  • duct tape

I usually don´t print photos but since it is so easy these days, I don´t know why. I have a great photo printer, a Canon MS 7700-series, at my studio, so why don´t use it? I printed my photos on an A4 sheet, two on each. (I got one extra. Maybe I do another canvas board print for one of the grandparents).

Cut the photos slightly smaller than the canvas boards.

Glue your photos to the canvas board with decoupage glue. Let them dry.

Make a hanger. I just took a string and duct tape. Ready to put on your wall of choice.

This is a really quick DIY that gets a great finish. It takes 20 minutes if you count the drying of the decoupage out. I really recommend this project.
