Our tutorial uses Canva to create video pins. Canva is a free website and makes it really easy to create vertical video pins that you can quickly make and add to your Pinterest boards. You do not need to have a Canva Pro account to make video pins but you will need to create an account to make video pins.
Step 1: New Design
Create a new design in Canva or open this template. In this example we’re making a vertical pin that’s 1000 px by 2000 px with a video displayed above an image. If using our template, click FILE and make a copy to edit.
Step 2: Import Video and Image
Click UPLOAD to add your videos and images. Click on the video and image to place on the blank canvas or drag to drop into the template we’ve created. If you want to add a title, select TEXT and ADD A HEADING. Change the font, resize, and move title.
