So here's how it will work. Post about a project on your blog, along with instructions on how you created your mod podge masterpiece! OR you can do a post featuring a project you have seen someone else do, just to pass the idea along. Just make sure you give credit where credit is due! Also, make sure to include a link back to my blog in your post!
Next, link up by entering your name and copying the URL to your post into Mr. Linky - he's waiting at the bottom of this post. It would be helpful if you put the name of your project along with your name so people will know what they are coming to look at! (example: Xazmin - decorative eggs)
Last, go check out everyone's fabulous projects and let the inspiration begin! You can link up as many projects as you'd like today, or space several out over upcoming editions.
I'll go first! I already posted my decorative eggs - so I'm going to post the shower gift I made for my baby brother's fiance last week! This also qualifies me for Kimm's Trash to Treasure Tuesday as well as Kari & Kijsa's Trash to Treasure party...can you say DOUBLE BONUS!? You should go check them both out...it's so fun!
I started with this:
We have tons of 2x4 scraps laying around in our basement, from when we started to finish it! It's all framed in, but we had to take a break so we could save up more money!
I picked out several that looked good and spray painted them Ivory. Then I took some scrapbook paper, cut it to size and mod podged it to the wood!
I got some unpainted wooden letters from Robert's and spray painted them brown.
After the mod podge dried, I glued the letters to the 2x4's.
I sprayed a clear coat protective finish over the entire project and tied some tulle around a couple of the blocks. Here's how the finished project turned out!
My new little SIL loved it and I got some great compliments from the shower guests. I only had glossy finish clear coat, but I'm going to make some more and try the matte finish. I only had to buy the letters, because I already had all the other supplies. But don't worry, I'm not being cheap on the gift - my mom and I gave her a bunch of other stuff too! After all, she IS marrying my mom's baby!
If you make some of these...please link up next time so we can all see how they turn out! I can't wait to see what you all have done!
Also, I've decided to host this once a month on the last day of the month. It will be so fun!
