Cheap Photo Collage

This is a craft I found on Pinterest, the only difference is they used a heavy duty poster board, like the thick foam boards and they cut all thier pictures the same size.

Here are the supplies:

A piece of poster board (you can have it any size, depending on how big you want your collage)

Modge Podge

Foam paint brush

Pictures (as many as you want to make the collage you want)

Paper cutter

Tape runner

Other decorating supplies (stickers, ribbon, letters, paper, etc)

Instructions:

Cut the poster board to the size you want and cut all the pictures to the size you want (I cut out all the extra space in the pictures)

Tape the pictures to the poster board in any arrangement you would like.

Decorate the poster board, pictures however you would like (you want to do this before you modge podge to help keep the decorations)

Using the foam brush, paint the modge podge over the entire poster board (picture and decorations in all).

Do about 3 coats and let completely dry after each coat, then go ahead and frame it or just hang it up (by taping)

Due to confidentiality, I can’t show the whole project complete. Basically you would tape these pictures on to the black poster board and then use the modge podge and do about 3 coats to make the collage glossy and pretty. You can have your pictures any different sizes and you can decorate your poster board however you would like, make it pretty and personalized.

For mine, I used my Cricut and cut out letters, spelling Friends and Family in green glittery paper and put it underneath the first row of pictures. It looks so nice and I can’t wait to hang it in my office 🙂
