I love crafting. All things crafting and when I came across this idea on one of my local Crafting Facebook Groups I had to give it a try. The process is super simple. I had snapchatted (add me at: mdvorak76) the whole process but forgot to take actual photos for the blog, but it's super easy to do!
- One crafting pallet board in desired size. I got the size "Large" from Walmart for $4, which is a little smaller than 12x18.
- A poster sized print of desired photo that best matches the sized pallet board you are using. I got mine in the 12x18 size at Walgreen's. With a coupon it was $7.
- Mod Podge. I used regular satin finish, but I know some who use the Antique Finish.
- Paint brushes. I use the foam ones for Mod Podge, they work best for me.
- Flip your photo over and place the pallet board in the back side of the print. Measure around the board to make sure the print is the same size of the board and mark the border as you do so.
- Make marks on the back of the print where each of the gaps between the slats end and begin, use a ruler to draw he lines across the whole print.
- Cut each line you marked with a scissors; the outer border and each of the slats so your photo will now be cut into four pieces (or however many panels your pallet board has).
- Using Mod Podge, attach each of the four pieces you have cut your print into, to each section of the pallet board.
- Do a top coat of Mod Podge and let dry over night.
- If desired, use sandpaper or a nail file to rough up edges and get an aged look.
- I have a Cricut machine, so I also cut out a quote in vinyl and attached that!
It really is a simple process! I will be making two more, one for each set of grandparents so I hope to update the post with pictures soon! Hope this all made sense and I would love to see your finished product if you try it!
