For the Christmas season WHNT News 19 has teamed up with University Pickers to bring you several Pinterest-inspired gift ideas you can make for friends, family, or for yourself.
Here's a fun alternative to simply framing a picture. Transfer it on to a piece of wood. Add a unique and rustic touch to your memories.
You'll need: a picture printed on regular copy paper (make sure to print the reverse/mirror image), a piece of wood with a smooth surface, Mod Podge, a paint brush and water.
Materials are estimated to cost about $5.
On a difficulty scale of 1-5, this rates a 1. This can be done fairly quickly, and there's not a lot of room for error.
- Prepare the piece of wood. Cover it with paint (latex works well).
- Once it is dry, paint Mod Podge on the wood.
- Take your picture (printed mirror-image) and press it on the wood, so it sticks to the Mod Podge. Let it dry.
- Wet the image with a cloth, then rub with your finger until you get to the color. Keep rubbing off the paper and you'll have your image!
