DIY $15 Faux Canvas Print

DIY Cheap Canvas Print @themerrythoughtWhile I was finishing up the living room, I was hoping to make a get a big print made from a photo from one of my trips last year. I looked up canvas prints and most of them were $100+ for the size that I wanted. I thought about just hanging a plain engineer print like we have in the past but I decided to try to make my own faux canvas print. It ended up costing just under $15 and looks really good!

This DIY is also kicking off our new weekly Youtube series of easy how-to videos! Not all of the DIYs will be featured on the blog so be sure to head over and subscribe to make sure you don’t miss out on any tutorials!DIY Cheap Canvas Print @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-Plain Canvas (I bought mine with a 50% off coupon at Michaels and got it for $10)
-Engineer Print (I ordered mine from Staples online because the local Staples wouldn’t print it for me. Yes, I did argue with the person at the printing desk and then leave angrily… oops.)
-Hot Glue Gun
-Mod Podge

Here’s this week’s video giving you a quick tutorial on how to put this together!

    So I’m wondering why they wouldn’t print it for you. Copyright issues?

    I had a big fall out with Walgreens over my wedding photos I ordered (and paid for) in a book online and then they super hassled me when I tried to pick the book up.ReplyCancel

      It was actually because they told me they can’t print images as engineer prints. I had ordered them online for pickup and drove out to pick them up and when I got there they told me they couldn’t print them. I think this specific store just didn’t want to print them anymore because I had printed them there many times before. Ha! Then I ordered them online to be shipped to me and they arrived within 48 hours – it was great!ReplyCancel
