My mom has been wanting a large art piece for above her bed and I thought that it would be the perfect gift to give her for her birthday. Have you seen how much large wall art cost these days?! I don't know about you but I can't afford $100 plus for wall art so I decided make my own, again. I made one of these large art pieces a few years ago for our bedroom that you can see here. Follow the steps below to create your own masterpiece! I purchased a large poster on Zazzle (using a 50% off coupon), a canvas a little smaller than the poster (also using a 50% off coupon), Mod Podge, and a paint brush.
Step 1: Apply a thick layer of Mod Podge all over the canvas. It needs to be thick so it won't dry before placing the poster in place.
Step 2: Lay the poster ontop of the canvas and carefully smooth out any bubbles starting from the center and working your way out.
Step 3: Flip the canvas over and apply Mode Podge to the sides and wrap the the poster.
Step 4: Using painters tape hold the sides taught in place. Using a hand staple gun, staple the edges in place. For the corners fold carefully in place like you would do wrapping a present. Flip the canvas back over and staple the corners in place.
Step 5: Let it dry completely before adding picture hooks on the back.
The project came out so awesome and only cost me around $45. My mom is going to totaly love her birthday gift!
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side. I love to show case my friend's photography so a lot of the photos are from her. I hope you get inspired.
