Vintage Wall Plaques
Here are a couple fun crafts for Easter-
They are vintage Easter plaques. They have some pretty glitter on the flowers but the picture didn't pick it up. All you need to make these is some chip board or mdf for your base, your favorite vintage Easter card enlarged and printed on parchment paper, ribbon, glitter and decoupage! I actually purchased the backing board at the Dollar store. It was a mdf board with an image applied to it. I painted over the front image so that I had blank pallet to begin with. Super inexpensive and easy!
Find your favorite vintage card by searching on the internet for "Vintage Easter Cards" or you can visit Silver Collect Blog or Hub Pages. Simply enlarge them to fit your board and print. Apply the image with Modge Podge or spray adhesive. I recommend spraying both the paper and the board if using spray adhesive. It will adhere much better! Before applying your embellishments seal the image with Modge Podge by applying a coat with a foam brush.
Next apply your ribbon as a border and your bows. Lastly, apply a small about of modge podge to the tips of the flowers and sprinkle with clear glitter to create a little sparkle to your project! That's it! Easy and so darling!
