Happy Saturday everyone! I hope this summer is starting off right for all of you! I want to bring you today a very fun and easy project.
This DIY back to school photo prop is my latest contribution for ehow. I did not hesitate for a second to create this project and write the tutorial. I love taking pictures (understatement of the year), so a photo prop for the very first day of school was on my long list of crafts to make (aka Neat DIY’s Pinterest board).
This summer will be extra special because our son will start Kindergarten in August and being he has been attending pre-school for the last two years, he now understands the meaning of vacation and days off. Not to mention, he’s all excited about going to the ‘big kids’ school.
So here is a sneak peek on how to DIY this awesome frame for that back to school picture.
I used a lasercut frame, sidewalk chalk, spray adhesive, mod podge, acrylic paint and some wooden letters embellishments.
You can grab these items at your local craft store, but I have also put together a handy list (affiliate link) if you prefer to purchase online.
I love how it all came together. I was pressed with time trying to meet a deadline (what else is new in my life?) and I have to tell you I am impressed on how this photo prop was so easy to put together.
The hard part was waiting for the spray adhesive to dry completely. I do not have patience for that, not good for a DIY’er.
But, it was oh, so much fun, even my soon-to-be 5 year old son helped! I also included an alternate finish. So, head over to ehow and read my awesome tutorial: DIY Back to School Photo Prop[AdSense-A]
If you don’t have time now ( I get it, I saved a tutorial just like this 2 years ago), pin now to save it and make it later!
Let me finish by saying: I am literally ecstatic about this summer. No big plans really, just a couple of weekend getaways here and there within Florida, but just the thought of it makes me giddy! Nothing like a change of pace and breaking the routine. Who’s with me?[bctt tweet=”If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it is lethal. Paulo Coelho” via=”yes”]
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
