Hello Giggles Galore readers!  It’s Shari here from SincerelyJean.com.  Today I am bringing you a fun and easy craft for Mother’s Day.  We all know that moms LOVE homemade gifts.  It means so much when you receive something that took time, effort, and love.  Today I am bringing you a tutorial on how to make a DIY Picture Frame Collage Chalkboard.

DIY Picture Frame Collage Chalkboard

My mom is the best mother and grandmother and I wanted to surprise her with a picture collage of her two grandchildren.  I have also been loving DIY chalkboards lately so I decided to put the two ideas together.  I can’t wait to give it to her on Mother’s Day!

1. Use painters tape to cover the glass and paint the frame black and let it dry completely.  I used 2 coats.

2. Use painters tape to cover the frame and paint the glass with chalkboard paint.  I used 3 coats.

3. Time to position your pictures.  This is what takes the longest time.  I measured my frame and divided it by the number of photos I had.  I then mixed the sizes to make everything fit.  I resized my photos using a free online photo editing website called PicMonkey.  I then printed them out on photo paper and cut them out.  I used Mod Podge to glue the pictures to the frame.  I let them dry completely and then put Mod Podge over the top to secure everything.

4. I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the quote.  For those of you who have a Silhouette, I used the Yellow Daisy font.  For those of you who don’t, I have created a PDF file HERE that you can trace.  I used a chalk marker to trace and let it dry completely.
