My contributor Emily is sharing how to make this beautiful DIY Photo Box
I love spring! I have been waiting and waiting for the weather to cooperate enough for me to begin planting in the backyard. I’m still waiting. In the meantime I’ve been keeping myself busy with new projects for our new home! This frame/note board is perfect for leaving messages for the hubby or showing off the photos of my newest little one 🙂 This one turned out so well I’m seriously considering making a few more as gifts for the grandparents. I hope you enjoy yours just as much 🙂
- Acrylic paint in desired colors
- Gold leaf
- Paintbrushes, foam brushes and or paint spatula (anything you need to help you achieve your desired look)
- Mod podge
- Metal clip large enough to use to attach photos or notecards I found mine at Hobby Lobby
*I know there is gold foil in this picture instead of gold leaf and you can use the gold foil. If you do, let your paint dry completely and then use the deco foil adhesive to apply the gold foil. It will have a different look to it because the gold foil is heavier and won’t allow you to scratch it off to let the paint show through as much as the gold leaf will. Total matter of preference.
