Oh the things you can do with Mod Podge

Aside from rubbing a layer of glue or gluesque substance like Mod Podge on your hand, waiting for it to dry, and then pealing it off (come on you remember doing that in middle school), there are other things to do with Mod Podge that serve a more stylish purpose.  Today's project is one of those.

The inspiration for my project came from this beautiful fall napkin I found.  I though the golden colors would look so pretty on my frame.  I gathered all of my supplies:
Aren't those pretty napkins?  

I immediately experienced failure as soon as my beautiful napkin touched the glue.  It bunched up, got all gross looking and just wasn't going to work.  So I kept all of my other supplies and traded the napkin for some scrapbook paper.  The paper wasn't quite as beautiful, but my sources were limited and I def wasn't going back to Michaels just for paper.

I cut the paper into strips and covered the plain wooden frame.  Then I decided that "Give Thanks" was an appropriate sentiment for my fall frame.

The words are simply stickers that I placed on the frame and then went over them to seal them on there with a layer of glue.  I did the same for the coordinating flowers.

And the beginning of my fall decorating can begin.  I think it looks great sitting on my hearth.  Even though the napkins didn't work out, I will just put them away and use them at some point when I want to make a good impression with my friends!

In honor of my frame, I want to say that today I am thankful getting to go into Savannah with my friend Cari and her fabulous little boys Ian and Evan.  I had fun today Cari!
