If you are looking for a unique and creative use for your photos, consider making personalized photo Christmas gifts.You can follow here.
Things You’ll Need:
2-by-4-by-4-inch wooden blocks
Sandpaper, 60 or 80-grit
You may want to lay down newspaper to protect your work area before you begin painting. Spray a thin coat of paint on your wooden blocks. Allow the paint to dry for at least 30 minutes and apply another layer of spray paint. Continue applying thin layers of paint (with 30 minutes of dry time between them) until your blocks are completely covered on all sides.
Note: Applying thin layers will prevent the paint from dripping and leaving unwanted paint drips on the blocks.
To give the blocks an aged and distressed look, use a medium grit sand paper to sand the block. Focus your sanding on the edges of the block, as the center will be covered with the photograph.
Place your photo in the center of the block. You can slide the photograph to adjust its position once it is laid down. Wipe off any excess decoupage glue using a wet paper towel. Allow the glue to dry for at least 20 minutes before proceeding.
Apply a thin layer of decoupage glue to the top of the photo. Allow to dry for 30 minutes and then apply another thin layer. After two hours of drying, your wooden photo block will be ready to wrap or put on display.
This would be a Commemorative value gift.
