Create your own Mother's Day gift. Below are the steps for this 3 panel personalize photo collage.
|Don't want to do 3 panels? Just do one!|
Boards - I used 3 but you decided (I would stick with an odd #; 1, 3, 5)
Matte Black Spray paint
Pictures - I was able to find three photographs from my childhood with my brother and sister. Print these pictures on thick paper. I used Card Stock.
Eye Hooks - You'll need 10 if you create three panels
|Start with the boards. Either buy some precut boards or cut them |
down to the correct size.
|Spray paint your boards. Be sure to cover the sides.|
|Once your paint has dried grab your eye hooks. I drilled a few |
holes in the top and bottom of my boards to ensure they were
all in the same place.
|Screw them in|
|Cover just the board with Mod Podge (without your picture). |
Then place your photo on the board and cover the photograph
with Mod Podge too.
**** I used my inkjet printer but I think it would be better to
use a laser jet if you have one available.
|Let the Mod Podge dry for about 12 hours. Then sand down |
the edges. I roughed up other parts of the board and some
parts of the photograph too.
|Use your twine to connect all the pieces. This was the|
hardest part of this project for me. You want to make
sure the twine on each side is the same length or
your photos will hang crooked.
|Here are my 3 photos: Summer time in the backyard|
|Building a snowman!|
|And you're ready to wrap it up.|
