Hard to believe, but we are well into December and I’m sure I’m not the only one with holiday gifts on her mind! Today, I’m sharing a fun, easy and customizable gift that everyone will love. This craft comes together quickly and is a great project idea for a kids craft or even a Girls Night!
Take one unfinished wood frame (easy to find at any craft store), add one gorgeous sheet of paper and a felt bow, and you’re left with this adorable and easy decoupage wood frame! There are so many ways to customize these, and they make great gifts! Let’s take a look at the how-to…
Mod Podge Matte
Unfinished Wood Frame
Material for a Bow (optional)
Step 1: On the back of your paper, trace your frame (both the outside and the opening where the photo goes). I found this gorgeous metallic gold, cream and gold paper from Papersource (though any paper will do). Cut out your shape.
Step 2: Apply Mod Podge to your frame. Lay your paper over the Mod Podge and press to adhere. It helps to use a decoupage brayer or even a credit card to help press your paper onto your frame. But even if your paper wrinkles a bit, don’t worry about it–it’s hard to see and helps add a bit of character to your finished product.
Step 4: You’ll see that I had a length of cream canvas in the “materials” photo, but I wasn’t happy with how the cream bow looked with the frame, so I went for gray felt instead. Sometimes you just have to try different materials to see what you like best! My felt piece was 3″ x 6″, and I folded it accordian style and hot glued the ends together. I then took a piece of gold ribbon and wrapped it around the middle. I hot glued the bow to the frame and that was it!
I adore how this turned out…I think it’ll have a home in my craft room for now so I can keep my littles’ faces nearby while I create!
Can you believe I have over 50 mod podge crafts on my blog? Crazy! Shows how much I love the stuff, though. Thanks for reading!
