Trendy Wooden Coloring Page Frame

Hey Ladies-

I have been working with my kids on ideas for Father’s Day and we decided to focus on a frame idea.  This project is one my middle daughter and I came up with using the trendy adult style coloring page.  Coloring the detailed page gave her something to do on one of our lazy afternoons and the rest was simple to put together.

What you need:

  • 9″x12″ wood plaque (I got this inexpensive piece at Wal-Mart
  • Colored coloring page
  • Paint brushes
  • Paint
  • Paint sponges (for ModPodge)
  • ModPodge
  • Clip
  • Short Screw
  • Screwdriver
  • Picture hanger with nails
  • Hammer

2.  Use the sponge brush to spread a thin layer of Mod Podge over the entire front and sides of the painted plaque.  Very carefully place the coloring page on the front of the plaque, centering it.  Start at one end and smooth it down to the other end. Once you have it all down with no bubbles, spread a thin layer of Mod Podge over the coloring page to seal it.  If the Mod Podge is too thick it will cause the paper to bubble, so make sure to work in thin layers. Let plaque dry.Edited IMG_0348

3.  Center the picture hanger on the top of the back of the wood plaque.  Hammer the nails in to hold it in place.edited IMG_0350

4.  In the center of the width of the plaque, about an inch fromt the top, screw the clip in place.

This is what her final product will looks like!! Too fun not to show the whole thing prior to adding a picture!

My daughter layered a piece of scrapbook paper with her school picture to show off her latest project.

Enjoy!  And Happy Father’s Day!!!
