If you’re wondering how much this project would cost, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of the required items which can be purchased at a Michael’s or most local craft stores:

  • A piece of wood similar to the one used in the video costs $7.99 – $14.99, depending on the size.
  • “Mod Podge® Matte” sells for about $3.49
  • “Liquitex® String Gel Medium” is only about $15.99
  • A brush is about $2.99 at any hardware store
  • A photo of your choice

Total cost? About thirty bucks. Amazing.


However, this “photo transfer” process isn’t limited to just wood.

In the video below, by Momasaurus, canvas is the material used. It’s not even really a transfer; it’s taking a pic and making it look like it’s printed on canvas. It’s fun and easy and looks amazing in the end. The best thing is that it only takes a few minutes to do, and it’s super affordable. The best tutorials show you what to do in detail and that’s exactly what this one does.

You’ll just need to pick up a blank canvas, a picture, some modge podge, acrylic paint, and sponge-ey brushes to make one of these for yourself.
