I’m kind of mad for the new “transfer photos to canvas” trend. In my bedroom sits a very special photo that was transferred to canvas as a gift to me from my daughter. It’s one of my most prized possessions because the photo was taken at the exact moment I first saw my first grandchild – Brady.
In the background you can see my son-in-law hugging his Dad. This photo canvas is one of two things I would grab in a fire – the other being a small box my son made me in 1st grade in which he whispered “I love you, Momma.”
You can pay a company to transfer your digital photo onto a canvas, which is what my daughter did for me. Canvas People does it and usually is running some kind of special. (As of this writing, it’s a free 8×10 photo canvas plus S&H.)
But, if you’re Crafty Suzanne of the Long Island Crafties, you can transfer a picture to a canvas all by your lonesome.
What You’ll Need to Transfer Photographs to Canvas
1. Blissfully Ever After had professional photographs taken of her sweet baby and created her own lovely DIY canvas photo collage to show them off. It’s absolutely beautiful, isn’t it?
2. Shanty 2 Chic made transferred pictures of her son playing football onto wood and the result is pretty awesome. Wish I’d known about this when my son was playing!
3. You can transfer more than just photographs to canvas. Corner House transferred images of state maps of Alaska to canvas for some pretty awesome wall decor. What a cool idea!
4. Girl. Inspired. did a stunning job of transferring photos to canvas. I’m in awe of how pretty this turned out. I’m sure the subject matter didn’t hurt any. 🙂
5. Christine & Co. did an image transfer to canvas that I think is just glorious. I’m in love with it.
