I really enjoyed making this photo collage. I made it for myself as a Mother’s Day/Baby Keepsake. It was also my first time using Mod Podge. I found it pretty easy to use. If you have never used or heard of Mod Podge it is easy to find at any craft store. I decided to make this photo collage because I wanted something different I can hang on the wall to represent my daughter’s first ear of life. I was going to Mod Podge the pictures on to the letter M for Mom but decided to go with a J for my daughter’s name Janelle.
Materials: Mod Podge, Mod Podge brush, hot glue, ribbon, wood letter, paper pictures
Step 1: Print out a couple of your child’s pictures in different sizes. They can be either black or white or color. Photo paper is not needed. In doing this project I found that regular printer paper works best. I printed out some of my favorite pictures of my baby from birth through age 1.
Step 2: Cut of the pictures and place them over the letter so you know exactly where to place the photos.
Step 3: Start brushing the mod Podge on to the letter then placing your photos. Continue until you have all the photos on.
Step 4: Lightly go over the pictures with Mod Podge. The Mod Podge will look white but will dry clear.
Step 5: Let dry completely. I let mine dry overnight. After it is dry make sure that the pictures are completely stuck to the letter. If they are not, add another layer of Mod Podge.
Step 6: Hot glue ribbon all around the letter.
Enjoy! You can hang your picture collage on the wall using Command Photo Hanger Strips.
