Tuesday's Time Out to... DIY! Mini Canvas Project


(Also, look for future "Tuesday's Time Out to..." Crafts, Tips & Tricks, and more!)

This DIY is great for home decor.  I used this particular project to decorate in my oldest daughter's  room.  These are cute and easy miniature canvases that you turn into an almost instant wall hanging without being an artist! Let's get started!
Materials required:

-Sharp scissors (Xacto knife if you're handy with one)
-Magazine with desired photos
-Acrylic paint
-Modge Podge
-Miniature canvas (or desired size)


Paint the canvas the color you desire, let dry.  Cut out the image you want.  Be very careful to get as close to the edges of the image as you can. Apply modge podge to the back of the image, covering every bit of the paper, then smooth on to dry canvas in the desired location of the canvas. Be sure of the location as you can't move it after.  Also be careful not to allow any bubbling under the image.
And that's it!!
Let it all dry and hang where you want it!

Now instead of paying a fancy price for a nice wall hanging, you can easily make your own for a fraction of the cost.

You're welcome!! :)
