You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1) Remove the backing from the frame and paint white, allow to completely dry and then apply a thin coat of PVA glue. Thie will give a nicer finish to the decoupage paper later.

2) While the frame back is drying paint the MDF Letters and mache photobooth props your desired colours. I used Deep Violet for the bow tie, Navy Blue for the glasses, Burnt Umber for the moustache and mixed a small amount of black with burnt umber for the stem of the props to darken them into the background.

3) Once the frame backing is completely dry, mark out the design for the decoupage papers. I opted for simple off-center quarters. Apply watered down PVA glue directly to the back of the decoupage paper to allow for and stretch in the paper and then carefully place the paper onto the frame backing and smooth out any wrinkles or air bubbles.

4) Once the background has completely dried apply one further coat of PVA over the top and again allow to dry completely then border the edges of the decoupage papers with washi tape/duckling tape to frame the design and hide any rough edges.
