Mod Podge Frame

With Anthony being out of work for the past 6 months,
Christmas is going to be a bit of a challenge.
I still want to give nice gifts; I just need to be frugal.
I thought it would be fun to make picture frames this year as Christmas gifts.
I went over to Michael’s and bought wooden frames.
I also bought some fun jewels.
I already had Mod Podge, paint and paper
So I saved some money there!!
The best part, the frames were only $1!
The jewels were only $2
What a deal!

While Grace was at school I decided to do a practice run.
When Grace gets home, she wants to help make a frame for her teacher! I am so excited because she loves to do crafts.

·      Frame
·      Paint
·      Mod Podge
·      Paper
·      Paint Brush
·      Sponge Brush
·      Mod Podge roller thingy (I didn’t have one so mine turned out bumpy)
·      Jewels
·      Nail file
·      Hot glue gun

 First paint your frame and let it dry

Once your paint is nice and dry trace your frame onto your paper and cut it out

 Next use a sponge brush to put the Mod Podge onto your frame

 Then lay your paper onto your frame
 If you have a roller thingy, now is the time to roll it over your frame to get the bubbles out
 I don’t know what I did with my roller thing, so unfortunately mine has bubbles
Can you see them?
I am going to have to buy a roller thing so I can get those bubbles out for the next frame

Then let it dry
Or if you are super impatient like me, go ahead and put the top coat of Mod Podge on top

 Once the topcoat dries
Use the nail file to even out the edges 
Now you can glue a pretty jewel down
So fun!
 Jewels make things so much more fun!

 I added a printable from here

Hope yours turns out better than mine!

It turned out awesome. I already have most of the supplies so all I have to get is the frames. Such a great idea for Christmas presents that I need to for sure make.

Wrapping paper?!?! Brilliant! I always see these frames at Michaels and want to buy them since they're so cheap, but I'm scared whatever I do will turn out like, well, a kiddy craft. But this proves it all wrong! Thank you for making my xmas shopping a little easier!
