Instructions

  1. Choose photos (see tip below); print any digital images onto paper. (We printed in black and white images to add a nostalgic quality.)
  2. Arrange photos and glue to painted wooden tray.
  3. Affix them to the tray using Mod Podge (or other decoupage medium). Let dry.
  4. Add another coat of decoupage medium to the entire tray to seal it. Let dry.
  5. Embellish with heart or other design, using dimensional paint. Let dry.
  6. Apply waterproof clear sealer and let dry.

Crafter’s Tip: You don’t have to use only digital images on your Decoupaged Photo Tray, even if you don’t have a scanner. Take prints to a framing or photo shop and have them scan the images you want.
