CIY: Wooden Plaque Artwork With a Quote

Being a crafty person, I am always coming up with random projects.  I go and buy the supplies I need, then completely forget that I bought the supplies and what I had intended on using them for! The other day I was going through one of my bins when I came across a mini easel and a small wooden plaque.  I know I did not buy the two of these to use together, however, my brain married them together and a new idea was created.  Why not turn this into a piece of artwork?!  I thought the little wooden plaque would be great to display a quote on a mantle or a desk.  So, I headed out to my Pinterest Board to see which one I would use.

One of my favorite quotes is “Collect moments, not things”. I love this quote.  I have always embraced this quote in my own life.  I am a pretty cheap person when it comes to spending money, however, if it is money being spent on trips , events, or food my wallet opens up much easier.  To me, moments and memories are far more valuable than expensive “things”. “Things” go out of style, break, and go missing. Moments can be cherished forever.

{Step 1}: Cut out letters from your magazine to spell out the quote.  You will want to keep all of them about the same size so they fit on your plaque.

{Step 2}: Place your glitter paper over your plaque. Trace where the paper meets the plaque and cut.

{Step 3}: Paint your plaque (I painted 2 coats). Let your paint dry.

{Step 4}: Put Mod Podge on the back of your glitter paper and glue it to the top of your plaque.

{Step 5}: Put Mod Podge on the back of your letters and arrange them on your glitter paper (you may want to grab a ruler.  Clearly mine are a little off-center. Whoops!)

{Step 6}: Cover the entire front of your plaque with Mod Podge. Let it dry. You are finished!
