So I told you that I'd put a tutorial up on how I made my Family Value wall hanging.
The idea did not originate from me, however I did do it a little differently (I think my way is much easier-you be the judge). I first got the idea from a guest blogger on The Pleated Poppy.
Anyway, here is what I used...
10x20 Canvas ($4 or so with a coupon from Hobby Lobby)
5 sheets of 12x12 scrapbook paper (less than $2)
Original Mod Podge ($3.50 with a coupon from Hobby Lobby)
Sponge Brush (on sale now for .07 cents at Michaels)
First Step: Write down your family values. You can do this with the kids. It's pretty fun.
Second Step: Cut your 12x12 paper to 8.5 inches wide so that you can use it in your printer. Just hold up a piece of printer paper to it and cut along the line.
Third Step: Type your values into word. See how they look with different fonts.
I downloaded a TON of free fonts from here... The fonts all look handwritten and they are SUPER fun. I LOVE FONTS.
Fourth Step: Print your values onto the paper!
Sixth Step: Lay your pieces onto the canvas and arrange them in a way that you like. You will have to trim the sides so that they line up with the canvas, too.
Seventh Step: Carefully slide the paper off the canvas.
Eight Step: Pour Mod Podge (a lot!) onto the paper plate. Use your sponge brush to spread it all over the canvas.
Tenth Step: Spread a layer of mod podge over the entire piece. Use a lot. Spread it evenly. Make sure to check for drips along the sides.
11th Step: Let dry and do it one more time.
THAT'S IT! Beautiful and rewarding family values wall hanging.
Please send me a pic if you make one.
