This post is brought to you by Plaid, but all opinions and ideas are 100% my own.
I just couldn’t wait a moment longer: I had to start getting my stuff together for Christmas. I mean, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, right?
There’s just something about the Extreme Glitter Mod Podge that was just screaming my name, begging me to use it for a special piece of holiday goodness. This Merry Little Christmas Mod Podge Frame came together impressively fast and has a good punch of glittery-ness that makes my heart happy.
In case Mod Podge is a new craft product to you (go HERE for more helpful hints and information), it is the number one all-in-one glue, sealer and finish. Available in a variety of formulas, the Mod Podge family of decoupage mediums provide endless possibilities for holiday and gift giving projects. You can find Mod Podge nation wide at a wide ranges of stores or if you’re an online shopper like myself, you can also purchase Mod Podge on the Plaid website. I love my Mod Podge and have a least four of the various formulas they offer. I’m obsessed.
Extreme Glitter Mod Podge
White FolkArt Paint
Red FolkArt Paint
1. Begin by painting the frame with the white paint. Make sure to add enough coats so that the wood does not show through. I used four generous coats of paint to get the color that I was aiming for.
2. Once the last coat of paint is completely dry, begin brushing thick coats of the Extreme Glitter Mod Podge. I wanted oodles of glitter on my frame so I added four coats of the Mod Podge as well. Let the Mod Podge dry completely before moving on.
3. While the Mod Podge is drying, print and cut the printable you’d like to enter in your frame. These prints are sized to 5″ square, but have plenty of white space around the edges to fit smaller frames too.
4. Before I assembled my completed frame, I painted the inside of the frame a bright red to make the print pop just that much more. I adore the unexpected twist. (By the way, can you see all of that glittery goodness on the frame? Swoon.)
5. Finish off the artwork by adding the ribbons and twine for hanging. You could easily either hot glue them in place or use a staple gun to keep them where they need to be. Hang your finished piece and enjoy!
