Clothespin Photo Holders + Canvas Prints

So a couple months back when I was designing my Laundry Room Makeover, I created these Mod Podge Canvas Photo Prints to hang in my space.

  • Oversized Clothespins (purchased from Hobby Lobby)
  • Paint
  • 5×7 canvas boards
  • Mod Podge
  • 5.25 x 7.25 inch paper printouts of photos
  • Scissors
  • Foam brush
  • Flower embellishments

printed photos for clothespin photo holdersI found three photos that I wanted to use for this project and printed them out to 5.25 x 7.25 inches. I trimmed them out and Mod Podged them onto the canvas front.

    i really want to try this, you actually used regular copy paper with inkjet printer?
    I was reading your post about doing canvas art prints and you suggested to use a laser printer…

    Did you seal the paper before putting on canvas?
    Thanks in advance.
