Mod Podge Mania


Ever since I saw this, I have been dying to try and make it myself. Not that those pieces aren't lovely, but I thought...Hey, I could do that. So I quickly looked around my house and remembered that I had these plain wood frames from the clearance rack at JoAnns. I think they were $1/ea. And of course I had TONS of fabric scraps!! So I got out my trusty Mod Podge and got to work.

I just cut the scraps, mod podged the frame, placed a piece of fabric on, and then mod pedged the fabric. I was careful when I wrapped the fabric around, so as not to fill in the groove the backing of the frame fits into. If I did get the fabric in there, I let it dry and then used a x-acto knife to scrape out the groove.

Voila!


Okay, seriously...eating popsicles, whilst my baby {at the time} is checking to make sure he's doing it right?!...stop it, just stop it!! Toooo Cute!
