Mod Podge Frame Tutorial - Somewhat Simple

I have made several Mod Podge frames over the years to give as gifts to friends and family – they are thoughtful, personal and can totally make you look all crafty and talented! Not to mention it only takes about an hour to complete + drying time, so if you find yourself in a time crunch, this idea is perfect!

The frame I made today wasn’t a gift for anyone else – it was something I made for my home. I fell in love with the following quote and I wanted a unique way to display it:

Children are not a distraction from more important work, They are the most important work.

-C.S Lewis

I wanted to use pictures of my kids with this quote to stand as a good reminder for me focus on them just a bit more through out my day, and this mod podge frame is a great way to do that! Here is how to make it –

How to Make a Mod Podge Frame

MATERIALS NEEDED: 

  • flat wood frame – no grooves or fancy corners.
  • pictures- for my 4×6 frame, I used 24 – 1 inch images that were trimmed just slightly
  • Mod Podge
  • sponge brush
  • scissors

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Gather, size and print your images. In the past, I’ve just copied them into a Word document, sized them to my liking, and printed them from my desktop computer. This time, I made a collage using PicMonkey.com and printed them with my Epson Picture Mate. This method was so easy and the quality of the images was amazing! (More on this printer later- keep reading!) 
  2. Cut your images to fit around your frame. Lay them out so you know exactly where you’re going to glue them.
  3. Brush a thin coat of Mod Podge onto wood and stick the pictures on top of Mod Podge.
  4. Once your pictures are glued down, cover them with another coat of Mod Podge.
  5. Let it dry completely and then you’re done!!!

Simple, thoughtful and cute!
