DIY Photo Plaque

Looking for an inexpensive and easy DIY gift for Father's Day?
a Photo Plaque
using your favorite picture!

I took this photo a couple weeks ago via Instagram and added this beautiful quote using Picmonkey (it's a great (free) site to edit photos). 

Wooden Plaque any size (got mine at Michaels)
Photo (smaller than the plaque)
Mod Podge
Acrylic Paint
2 Sponge Brushes (1 for the paint/1 for the Mod Podge)

Step One
Measure and trim your photo (if necessary) but don't worry if it's not perfect. Paint your wooden plaque and let it dry.

Step Two
Apply Mod Podge to the center of the plaque and place your photo on top. Make sure to smooth out any bubbles before applying a coat over the photo. Wait about 20 mins before applying a second coat. I applied a total of 3 coats.

Step Three
Since one side wasn't perfect (due to my cutting) I used sand paper to smooth out the edges on both match. The sand paper scraped some paint off so I had to repaint those areas.
All the little imperfections made this project...Perfect!

Wishing all the Dads a Happy Father's Day!
