This is one of those ideas that comes out of late night perusing on Pintrest. Below are two ideas that I found and loved and as I drifted off to sleep my Pintrest-filled dreams combined these two pins and I woke up knowing this had to be done! The wall art below on the left actually uses wooden frames, and the blog post on it is fun to read, check it out! The wood blocks on the right use Mod Podge and well...I love me some Mod Podge, plus the blocks are super cute for little hands :) Hello brilliant Christmas idea! I have a set of pictures of the boys that really needed to be displayed on a wall and I loved the look of the wood frames, but not the price tag. So when I found the wood plaques at Michael's, I knew I could use the technique from the wood block tutorial and ta-da and gorgeous way to display my pictures at a fraction of the cost!
What You Will Need:
Wooden Plaques (I found them at Michael's for about $1-$2 each)
Paint (I had Chalk Paint on hand but really any kind will work)
Paint Brush (The wider the better)
Sand Paper (220 grit)
Mod Podge (I used the original kind, but next go around I would use Matte so there won't be a glare)
Wide Sponge Brush (The wider the better)
Pictures (Bring the prints with you when you go to buy your plaques; it helps you to choose your size)
Step 9: Sit back and let them dry! Look how clear they are! Gorgeous!

That is a great project! Frames really are too expensive so I'm always looking for non-traditional ways to frame pictures.ReplyDelete
