Beautiful Family Canvas Idea


What a precious keepsake to make for a personalised gift or to have hanging in the family home. Our Grandparents are so precious to us so we wanted to make them something extra special.

We all holidayed together last year and got some beautiful family photos. This photo features Granny and ‘Paga’ (Grandpa) and all of their Grandchildren. Its such a special image so I wanted to do something extra special to show it off. You can learn how to make this Beautiful Family Canvas by following the my instructions 🙂

To make your own you will need:

A canvas

Photo frame


Flower embellishment

Scrapbooking backing paper

Paper doilies (approximately 8 small ones)

Stick on letters (I bought mine from Spotlight)

Mod Podge glue

Paint brush

Glue Gun


Step 1

Using the modge podge, paste on your scrapbooking sheet

Step 2

Add another layer of the modge podge and add on your paper doilies in a flower pattern.

Step 3

Add another layer of the modge podge then stick on your letters. I added another layer of the glue over the top and let it dry over night

Step 4

Place your photo into the frame and using the glue gun add on your flower embellishment

Step 5

Using the glue gun glue, secure the frame to the canvas

Step 6

Enjoy giving this special canvas to a very special loved one!
