DIY Canvas Photo Wraps

 

Super easy way to convert your favorite photos into a framed canvas photo wrap. We were really impressed with this DIY Canvas Photo Wrap kit that sells for only $29.99 at Offiice Max. They make a beautiful kit and look fabulous hanging in your home. This kit includes 3 frames to make up to 3 canvas photo wraps – assuming you don’t make a mistake while printing your canvas. I am absolutely in LOVE with my photo and I can’t wait to make more.

Here’s our video demo of the Canvas wrap kit:

Here are my tips to help you print your canvas correct the 1st time so you can learn from our mistakes. It took us 3 tries to get 1 perfect print to frame, but next time, we’ll know what we are doing!

1. Make sure you printer is set to full bleed. (This means ink will print to the entire EDGE of your paper)

2. Practice printing your photo on a regular piece of paper first. The kit only includes 3 canvas photo wraps; 1 for each frame. So if you mess one up, you’ll have 1 less to frame.

3. Think about which photo you want to print and try to pick a photo where the main image is in the center. Or resize and crop if possible to achieve that look. When you wrap your canvas photo wrap around the frame, you will lose almost 1 inch on each side.
