Mod Podge + Laminate = Quick and Easy Project

Sometimes you need to get back to the basics and just play. With one year ending and the next coming hard and fast on its heels, it’s easy to get caught up in all the things that need doing, the lists that need making, etc. When you feel yourself slipping into the chaos, it’s best to just let go and find time to get grounded again.  And there’s nothing like a quick Mod Podge project to brighten things up and have you smiling.

Grab a few supplies:

  • Mod Podge and applicator
  • Inexpensive wooden frame
  • Scissors
  • Piece of laminated fabric big enough to cover the frame and wrap to the back 
  • Decorative trim, optional

Cut the fabric one inch bigger than the frame on all sides.  With frame face side down on the wrong side of fabric, trace the opening. Cut fabric away from opening along the traced line. Apply Mod Podge to the frame and adhere the fabric.  Smooth out any air bubbles.

Apply Mod Podge to the sides and along the back edges. Fold fabric around frame.  If necessary cut notches at the corners to ease the folding. Press firmly to adhere fabric.

Using Mod Podge or other craft glue, apply trim to inside of frame edge.  Allow to dry.

Insert picture.  Enjoy the frame.  It’s that easy!

Of course, you can use fabric that is not laminated for this project.  Just apply several coats of Mod Podge to seal it, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next.
