DIY a Photo Canvas Wall
There have been a lot of photo canvas walls popping up in pinterest, so I thought I’ll show you mine. I use this tutorial as a guide ; I like the distressed edge look on them.
These are 20cm x 20 cm canvas that were scored in a Buy-1-Get-1-Free promotion. This is a good size to use if you plan to print them at home since A4 paper are 21 cm wide.
The photos were edited in browser-based photo editors. Besides PicMonkey.com, there’s also Pixlr.com ( express ) that comes with editing and effects tools. Pixlr.com is a bit more tricky to navigate, but it does have more effects.
The photos need not be all people, anything that looks interesting can do. Here my photo of a seagull hovering mid-air…

I painted the edges of the canvas like so, overflowing at the edges and more on the corners.
After the paint dried, I sprayed glue on the back of the photos and stuck them on top. Then I sliced off any protruding edges with a cutter. It will look kind of jagged.
To stick them on the wall, I use 3M gummy tacks ( the black ones worked better than the white ones. )
