Canvas paintings are very popular right now! You can easily turn a printed image on cardstock (of your choice) into a canvas and display it nicely on your mantle or on your wall.

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • canvas
  • Mod Podge
  • acrylic paint
  • sponge brush
  • brush
  • tape


  1. Print out the picture or phrase you would like on cardstock and trim the cardstock paper smaller than your canvas. I used a 5 by 7 canvas.
  2. Add masking tape to create a frame (it is your preference how thick you would like your border to be).
  3. Using the paint brush, paint with your choice of acrylic paint for the border if you would like - I used gold. Allow to dry for 10 minutes.

  5. When your paint seems to be dry, peel of the masking tape.
  6. Using the sponge brush - apply Mod Podge to the white center of the canvas where your printed cardstock will go. Center your cardstock image down and press down.

  8. Using the sponge brush again, apply a nice thin layer of Mod Podge which will seal your photo.
  9. Allow to dry for 20 minutes, or more - the longer the better.

  11. Ready to hang your canvas or rest on your mantle, desk, etc. Perfect to gift also!
