Good Beautiful Afternoon Tatertots and Jello Fans.
I hope your holiday season is fill with JOY and HAPPINESS! It is amazing how time flies, already November 30?! Did you know that I LOVE to decorate with photos? It personalizes your home decor and the possibilities are truly endless.
I’m Stacie from The Three Sweet Peas and today I am sharing a tutorial that will include a creative use for simple snapshot photos.
First things first, select the photo you are going to print. I used the one above.
Cut out two sheets of tissue paper a little bit larger than your 8.5 x 11 computer paper. I taped the tissue paper to the computer paper. I used a light tan, not white. I am going for the aged look.
This is the picture printed out on tissue paper. You will only use the printed layer. Untape carefully from the computer paper it is very fragile.
Next, comes the piecing part of the process. I am placing this picture on the letter “H”. Obviously I can’t run it straight across. I cut it and made it fit.
I started with the two largest pieces. I put down a VERY thin layer of Mod Podge. You need to place your piece of tissue paper exactly where you want it. It is so thin and delicate it will tear if you try to adjust it.
I used the rest of the photo and filled in the empty areas. I wrapped the sides of the picture around the edge of the H and then cut the excess off.
This process is designed to look aged. I took an ink pad and aged and distressed even more.
Then, I slopped on the mod Podge. I have to SAY I LOVE IT!
I pounded one hole in each letter and threaded string through it. Display anywhere in your home.
Mine are getting displayed on this amazing ladder.
I hope each one of you have a Merry Christmas and find a creative use for your photos!
Thanks Jen !
