Mod Podge Chevron Frames for Valentine’s Day

I recently picked up my very first bottle of Mod Podge and I am hooked. For my very first project I decided to attempt to decorate some frames for Valentine’s Day. I honestly had no idea what I was doing, but I love how they turned out!

This project is perfect for sprucing up old frames. I didn’t have any frames in need of an immediate makeover so I picked some up at Walmart for 98 cents.

I was hoping to find white frames, but I was unable to find any. I ended up grabbing brown frames and painting them with white acrylic paint.

In Photoshop, I made a chevron pattern, tiled it to fit an entire sheet of paper, and printed it out.

I then, brushed a little Mod Podge on the frame and placed the frame on the back of my chevron pattern.

With a X-ACTO knife, I trimmed around the frame, leaving just enough paper to fold around the frame.

I brushed a layer of Mod Podge on top of the chevron paper and folded the excess paper around the frame. I glopped on too much Mod Podge in some areas, so the ink bled a little. Other than that it looks super cool, huh?

Although my frame was pretty pre-glitter, I decided to go over the red chevron lines with a red glitter pen.

Voila!

I also decorated another frame (not as great as my first) and slid a cute “i love us” print inside.

What will I Mod Podge next? Stayed tuned…

I Love Us prints can be found here and here, chevron patterns here (a freebie from me).

    I just discovered the greatness that is Mod Podge too, and just did my first project. I’m hooked as well! I absolutely LOVE your chevron print! When I went to download it, it wasn’t available. Any chance you could re-post? Thanks!!

    Love the frames. I think the glitter gives it an extra oomph!

      I’m hooked!

      And thank you. There’s another photo of us from about 5 years ago that I wanted to frame. It was a little not safe for a family friendly sponsored post. We shared a kiss on the beach and I was in a bikini. The angle put a little more emphasis on the side of my boob and our sensual kiss… It was beautiful but I kept questioning it. Maybe I’ll share in a later post, lol.
