Barn Board Photos

100_1013 finishes product

The photo that shows 3 barns board photos is me and my family. The one that has all three of us in it and the one that has just my son are both tacky still, that’s why it looks white and you can see streaks. The other photo is my photographer & her husband, she is a good friend of my families and does all my photos for free so normally I like to give her something special weather it be crafts or in this case a barn board photo. ๐Ÿ™‚

This September a friend and I went to Sunfest for the first time, we fell instantly in love with some photos we saw of the ocean. My friend looked at me and said “we can do this, with our own photos!” and that is exactly what we did. These barn board photos make beautiful gifts, you will want to make some for yourself as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

what you will need:

* Mod Podge

* foam brush

*barn board cut to size of photos

*photos printed onto card stock (you can use regular printer paper but card stock works much better)

*liter

*scissors

*old towel

*credit card or something similar ( I use a discount one that the football team passes out every year)

What you will need

How we did it:

Firs print off the phot0(s) you want to use. Cut the photos down to size leaving a small rim just incase it burns in a little too far. Once you cut your photos, standing over a sink burn your edges ( I find this works best if you run your liter up and down the side till it just catches fire then I watch it burn in till it gets a hair past the rim, then I simply wet my finger and run it along the ashes to stop the burning process.). Next lay everything onto a towel and pour mod podge onto barn board, take your foam brush and evenly spread mod podge all over your barn board. Next take your photo center it onto the barn board and using your hand press it down. Pour some more mod podge right on top of your photo and again evenly spread it all over the photo and to the edges of the barn board. Now take your credit card and use it to run across the photo smoothing out any bubbles (this will also keep bubbles from forming as it dries.). And lastly I just use my foam brush and run it all over the barn board once again, and let it dry. Now you have a beautiful one of a kind photo(s). ๐Ÿ™‚
