Canvas Picture Frames

This is a simple and cute way to decorate your walls.

This is basically what you will need to create your own unique canvas art: 
A canvas, Mod Podge, a brush, puff paint, stickers & decals, scrap paper, embellishments and a picture.

 First you will need to cut your background scrap paper out to fit the front of the canvas.

 Then, cut strips of paper out for the sides of the canvas.

 Now squirt some Mod Podge on the top of the canvas and spread around.

 Then place the background paper on the top of it and make sure it sticks well. I turned mine over and pushed down on the back really well.

 Now adhere your picture on with the Mod Podge.

 Apply decals and stickers.

 Now adhere the edge strips to the sides with Mod Podge.

 At this point you can trim any paper edges that are hanging over.

 Now this might be scary at first, but squirt Mod Podge on the top of the canvas and spread around. After the top is dry, do the sides.

 You may have slight air bubbles like I did, just try to smooth them down as much as you can.

 After that's completely dry, then start drawing lines around the edges with the puff paint.

 You can either wait for the puff paint to dry or start adding any embellishments now to finish up your canvas.

 Once it dries overnight, it should be ready to hang.

You can be as creative as can be with these. Here's the finished product!

  Here's another one that I made too!
Have fun!!! Let me know if you have any questions.
