Decoupaged Wall Crosses


SUPPLIES
--16" x 24" crosses (etsy.com--Mr. Woody's shop)
--scrapbook paper
--Mod Podge
--small wooden crosses (Hobby Lobby--in VBS crafts)
--acrylic paint and paintbrush
--scissors
--hot glue gun

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Paint the edges of the cross with the acrylic paint. (You might want to paint the edges of the TOP of the cross, too--if you want to leave a border of paint on the top rather than mod podge the paper all the way to the edge).

2. If you want to place a smaller cross in the middle, then paint it with the acrylic paint as well.

3. Tear the scrapbook paper of your choosing into pieces. Paint a thin layer of mod podge on the cross, and begin placing your scrapbook pieces down. Paint another layer of mod podge on top. Use your fingers or the edges of a gift card to smooth out wrinkles.

4. Once the cross is covered in scrapbook paper, you can hot glue the small cross in the middle.
