Temple art for kids room - Day 48

The Church is building a new Temple which will become ours once finished. I decided to make some art for the boys room with the new Temple picture. I used an old piece of wood, a regular printed photo from the computer, some ribbon, vinyl, and some modge podge.

I Painted the piece of wood. When it was dried I sanded it to make it look distressed. I have been doing this a lot in my house intentionally because I know if I don't it will end up like that unintentionally anyways.

So I modge podged the printed photo on the wood. I left a big space on the right side to add embellishment. 

Once dried I hot glued the ribbon where I wanted.

I hung the photo above Ben's pillow.
( Ben took this picture. I look horrid, I will judge for you)

I then used my cricut to cut the words, "I'm going there someday" because that is his favorite song and the first one he learned all by himself. I have done vinyl where Ben could get to it and the letters have mysteriously come off. SO I modge podged it to my wall. It just looks like a clear square of shiny stuff around the quote. He loves it and we had a talk about not peeling the letters off. We shall see if it lasts!
