Fourth of July Plaques

Hello Friends! Being home for the summer gives me time to get in so many crafts and try new ones. Yea!! The idea and download for this plaque come from the blog, Just Another Hang Up. (I'm linking you to the direct post for this project.) Basically, you get a wood plaque from the youI spray it with a fixative so that the ink won't run during the next step. Next, Modge Podge that baby onto the plaque and smooth out the bubbles. Then add a layer or two of Modge Podge to the top. Voila! You're done:) And, yes, Suzanne has a MUCH more detailed tutorial on her blog. AND, she makes them for tons of holidays!!! THANK YOU, Suzanne:) Below is the second plaque I made. I added puffy stickers to this one and just Modge Podged over it all. It worked beautifully:)
I'm linking my project up to these linky parties that I just found out about this summer. Fun stuff!! Just click on the icon to go and visit:)
