deck the halls…

by @according2kelly on December 11, 2007

so i have all these pictures of the kids with santa, from years past. (mostly because ana brandt does these incredible santa sessions every year!) anyway, i was tired of having all the photos pile up in the drawer & i decided i definitely needed to do something with them. at halloween, i just displayed all the old halloween-ey pictures on a magnet board in my kitchen… boring! so this time around i knew i wanted to do something a bit more decorative with them. that’s when i remembered that my cousins whit & abby had just mod podged some cute frames. perfect! so i ran down to the craft store (actually, i pretty much make daily trips, so it wasn’t much of an imposition), bought some frames, scrapbook paper, wood stain, & mod podge and i was set. i followed the directions on the jar & ended up with a whole slew of frames. i had a lot of fun slopping glue & roughing them up to make them more “vintage” looking. here are some of my favorites… (click on the picture to enlarge)

Dee is totally into modge-podge, too. He got an old fashioned mailbox (the kind you hang on the door) and stuck cool stamps from his collection all over it. It's worthy of a boutique. Maybe he'll get an etsy shop! Love your pictures!

Those are ABSOLUTELY adorable. What a great idea. Was it hard? I've never modge-podged before.
