52 Week Challenge: #22 Decoupage Picture Frame

Friday, June 22

This week I spiced up a plain black frame with some origami paper and Mod Podge. I was inspired by this handy book that was sent to me from Lark Crafts. It's full of awesome craft ideas and more ways to use Mod Podge than I could have guessed. 
There's a pretty handy guide for the different types.
Love this chair.
This gave me the idea to decorate my frame, here's how I did mine:

1// Remove the backing and glass from the frame, then measure and cut pieces of paper to wrap around the frame.
2// Glue the paper with a layer of Mod Podge, let it dry completely.
3// Continue in a pattern around the entire frame, let it dry.
4// Then add a thick layer of Modg Podge over the paper and let it dry.
I framed a fisheye picture of Chris and I on a canal in Amsterdam.
 And I put out the little clogs I got when we were there! Have a great weekend!

  1. I do things like this all the time - only not with frames, but mainly mason jars. This is a great idea, thanks for sharing! You did it so profesionally, it looks perfect.

    It is pretty awesome. Amy Anderson (author of the blog and book) is super helpful. I asked a question in a comment on her blog and she got back to me the same day. It's a great resource!!! She truly is a Modge Podge expert. The book looks really fun. I need to check it out. :)

  4. When I was in a sorority we used to mod podge wooden letters with pretty scrapbook paper and hang them in our rooms. I still have a whole jar of that stuff, I will have to try new projects!

  5. Great frame! I've been telling myself I'm going to work on my pictures for 3 months now. Maybe this will inspire me.
