How to make a photo collage Baby/Kids Keepsake, Great Homemade Mother’s Day Gift

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.
