Mod Podge Letter

So while pinning... I got this idea.

(You can see my DIY board here to check it out for yourself... the page no longer exists though.)

Here's what I did...

I bought 2 pieces of styrofoam from a craft store.  My sister, who works at a furniture store informed me that some places will just GIVE AWAY pieces of styrofoam that they have from shipping.  Once the products come in and are unpacked, that styrofoam is just thrown away.  So, THAT would be a GREAT place to start.  This project would have been SUPER cheap (nearly FREE) if I had gotten the styrofoam for FREE.

Anyhow, the pieces where long and skinny so, I put them together by hot gluing craft sticks to the back.

Then, I printed out some black and white pictures.

**IMPORTANT** Regular school glue discolored my pictures.  A glueSTICK worked best (I even used the purple one) to glue the pictures onto the styrofoam.  Then, I used Mod Podge to cover the pictures.  I did 2 coats of that.  To finish, I sprayed with a clear coat sealer.  That's it.  SO EASY!!!

  3. Saw this on Pinterest, too, but haven't done it yet. Super cute. Way to go! Love your fun site design, btw.

  4. Thanks ladies! I loved making it! It was super fun to look through all of the pictures! Using styrofoam was key too... SUPER light and not breakable ;-) with 2 little ones running around, THAT is key!!
