How You Can Make a Simple Valentine’s Photo Display

Before picture of my upcycled canvas.

How  to make a simple Valentine’s Day photo display from an upcycled canvas. 

I had good intentions when I sat down to paint this canvas, but I sort of let my mind wander and didn’t concentrate or have a goal in mind when I started. As a result, it ended up hidden behind some furniture for about six months before I decided to use it for this upcycle. I also had a photo mat to use as well so I didn’t need to buy any new supplies.

Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.


First, spray paint your canvas red. Set up your lettering and photo mat to get an idea where to place things.
Setup your mat and letters as desired.

I used a glue stick to attach the photo where I wanted it on my canvas. Then I used a glue gun to attach the photo mat, centered over the photo. 
Glue down photo.
After, I just setup where I wanted my letters and applied them.

Apply lettering to canvas.

Here’s the final display.
