Pinterest Weekly

Hi everyone! This is the first edition of my new blog, Pinterest Weekly. The name is pretty self-explanatory, but basically I will chose my favorite thing I found on Pinterest that week and write about it. As a huge Pinterest addict, I know that there is a lot to look at, and it can be time consuming to sift through it all to find something interesting. That’s why I’ll highlight something each week that I found and enjoyed, and share my experience of it with you all. Most will be crafts or recipes, but it all depends on what is pinned! Hope you enjoy it.

This past week, I made a photo collaged initial, as shown to the right. image (1)

Compared to other crafts, I would say this is a medium difficulty DIY. Time wise, it does take awhile, but trust me, its worth the while. I probably spent about 4 hours on it total, spread out over a few days. I made it for a friend as a birthday gift and she absolutely loved it! It’s a great way to personalize and decorate your room. So if you’re ready to give it a try, here’s the how-to.

Supply list:

–  1 bottle of Modge Podge craft glue/ sealant (can be purchased at Hobby Lobby for about $5)

– 1 wall-hanging wood  initial (also found at Hobby Lobby for about $8)

– pair of scissors

-ruler

-a printer with plenty of ink

– foam brush

1. Have an idea of the pictures you want to use in mind, and start thinking of a layout for the initial. Every initial will have different measurements, but start by measuring a few areas on the initial to see how you will need to size the pictures. It’s best to have several different sizes of photos.

2. Insert the pictures you want into a Microsoft Word document, and play around with their size until they are the way you think you want them. Then, print out the pictures on high quality in black and white.

3. Cut out and start to place the photos. This is the most time consuming part of the project, so dig in your heels and stick it out. You may notice some of your photos looking disproportional as you resize them. I found it helpful to make them bigger than I needed and then cut off the excess around the edges to keep this from happening.

4. After you have a layout that you like, you’ll need to take off all the pictures. (You might want to take a picture so you remember how to put them back). Now lay down a fairly thin layer of modge podge with the foam brush and press your pictures onto it.

*Note: The pictures are thin, and I found that if you use your hand to press the pictures down, it often causes smudges. I used my ruler to gently smooth the pictures down. Also, do one section at a time, as the modge podge dries quickly.

5. After waiting about 5 minutes, you now use the modge podge to cover your pictures. It adds a nice glossy finish and ensures your pictures will stay. Be careful to only do a thin layer, as too much causes the pictures to turn green. The modge podge will look milky as it dries, but don’t worry, it does dry clear. Wait about 15 minutes and voila, you have a piece of very personalized room decor!
