Hello, I'm Sarah from The Winthrop Chronicles.
I'm so glad to be here with you on Created By Cori. Cori is so talented and so nice to welcome some guest bloggers!
Today I want to share with you this wall hanging I made for my daughter's room. I wanted to use a picture of her, but I wanted something a little different than just a picture in a frame. So I decided to make this photo on wood. I used the same technique as with this name wall hanging that I did a few weeks ago.first: print off the picture you want to use. I printed it on white card stock paper, so that it would have extra thickness and not wrinkle when I put glue on it.
second: spray paint a piece of wood. I used a scrap piece of wood and trimmed up the picture to match the size.third: get out your mod podge and coat the piece of wood with the glue. If you use anything other than mod podge, you should do a test sample first to make sure it won't wrinkle the paper. Mod podge did not wrinkle the card stock.
fourth: after you have placed the photo on top of the glue and have let it dry thoroughly, use sandpaper to rough up the edges.
fifth: go over the photo with a thin layer of mod podge to seal it.
sixth: I spray painted some eye hooks and just screwed them in to the top of the wood.
seventh: tie on a ribbon so that it can hang on a nail. Or you can just lean it against the wall on a dresser or attach a piece of wood on the back so that it stands up.
Thank you Sarah for sharing this awesome project with us!
