DIY Wall Art Canvas Poster
Wall Art……This was a fun project and only took a couple of hours. I decided to create my poster of places that our family has traveled, but you could make it whatever interest you. Maybe it would be your favorite cities or even cities that you hope to visit. Just have fun with it.
First I made a list of vacation spots our family has visited.
Also, since I was going to have it printed out at my local office supply store, I checked what sizes they offered.
I decided to make the poster 25 x 36.
So now I had my size I need to create my poster image. There are lots of ways to create your image, with word, powerpoint, microsoft picture and online sites like canva and picmonkey.
I used picmonkey for this project. PicMonkey photo editor: this is your photo on awesome juice
This is what I created…..I used different lettering styles and sizes.
You will have to use the pixel size that Staples recommends in order to get a good print. When I first uploaded my image to Staples it gave me a pop up & told me what the pixels needed to be for the size poster I had chosen.
So I go back to picmonkey and adjust the pixels to the recommended size.
Really easy to do.
I bought my canvas at Joann Fabric, which was on sale and I had a 20% off coupon.
To prep the canvas, paint the edges and sides black. I used acrylic paint.
Next spread a layer of mod podge all over the canvas.
Then line up the top of the poster with the canvas. Begin rolling out the poster and smooth with hand over top of poster as you go to remove air bubbles.
Cover entire poster with a layer of Mod Podge.
Let dry overnight
Now its time to hang and enjoy your new Wall Art
If you are wondering about the cost……the poster was $19.99 for the 24″ x 36″. The canvas board from Joann’s after my coupon and it was on sale was $9.99
Total cost for this size was $30.00.
There you have it…..Do you like creating your own Art for your home?
