I finally finished the second gallery wall I've been planning in our new apartment! This one went in the Bammer's room. I had a lot of frames from her old room that were scattered around and I bought a few wooden frames from the Michael's which are only $1. I painted the frames white and printed three prints from Naptime Delights. She has some awesome free prints that worked perfectly for my daughter's room!
Once I got all the frames and pictures ready, I also bought 2 big white letters from Michael's for my two daughter's first initials and here's what I did!
First outline the letters right side down on the paper you want which is also right side down.
Then use a crafters exacto knife to cut out the letters.
Then mod podge onto the letter, place the paper cut out onto the mod podge, then mod podge over the top. The paper rippled a little when I did it - I'm not an expert mod podger by any means. Maybe it would have been better to let the paper to adhere to the letter first and then mod podge on top once it was dry. I'll try that next time.
Then I embellished the letters with rosettes, ribbon, and buttons. I hot glued them down once the mod podge had dried. I made the rosettes out of an old white dress shirt that my husband was throwing out. Upcycling! Woot!
And here's a close up of the wall! I'll need to switch out some of the pictures once our second baby is born, but I love how it turned out!
