Artwork Display Plaque Tutorial

I get the privilidge of coming up with crafts for my MOPS group.  This week our discussion was on education and the options we have as parents.  For the craft I wanted to make thos panels with modge podge and the clothes pins attached for them to display their childrens work in another place besides our fridges.  However I have a budget to work with and I could of done it if I was able to get some panels cut in 12 inches per lady at LOWES.  Lowes no longer cuts panels for you so I would have to go to home depot with toddlers in tow and that did not sound fun therefore I found this solution at Hobby Lobby.  

I bought these little plaques for 50 cents each.  Then to save a little more money I chose for us to paint them.

let that dry a bit then use the sticky spray adhesive and stick a letter down

Then I painted yellow on top of that so this could match their room.

Then pull the letter off and you get this

too plain for me so i added some some dots.

I painted the clothes pin too. Then hot glued it on top. This would also be neat coat hangers just screw in a cup hook.  Finally I hammered on a hook on the back

Now I am done with my sample to take to MOPS.  Here is a picture of some of the women from MOPS working on it.

I took without much warning so they wouldn't leave.  They all came up with beautiful work.  Here are the ones Candace did for her boys and I love how it turned out.

Hope you enjoyed this one.  I will show you where I put mine in the near future.  Also I am planning to do a giveaway to one of my followers soon so check back soon.

  3. What a great craft today, Jamee! The photo at the end of this blog posting shows the Cars plaques I made. The final version has the clothes pin painted black with more grease spills all over the plaque. Who knew I was crafty?!? I think I still have glue stuck to my finger... and some on my pants... ;-)
