Photo Plaque

Look at my cute photo plaque.

You need a board, paint, Mod Podge, a photo, and stain if you want it.

You need to make sure that your board it free of any bumps or imperfections, your picture will not be flat if there is.

Wipe off all of the dust.

Paint your board the color you want.

Mod Podge your picture to the board.

Next Mod Podge over your picture.


Add a second coat of Mod Podge, and wait for it all to dry.

After the Mod Podge has dried completely you can stain it. Here is the difference.
Paint the stain all over the top and wait 5-10 mins and then wipe off to desired color is obtained. For mine I used my rag to wipe off the excess and then dabbed it to give it a sponged affect.

If you are going to stain it after the Mod Podge is dry MAKE SURE that you seal the edges of your picture REALLY well with the Mod Podge.

Or it will end up looking like this... my stain seeped under my photo and stained my picture.

I think I will finish it off with some ribbon to cover the stain blotches.
For the most part they turned out well!

Happy Podging
