For those of you that have been following me for any length of time you know I love all things that Sparkle and love taking old Goodwill finds and turning them into amazing pieces of home decor!
For this specific project, I dug out an old picture frame that came with a golden photo matte and then printed out a photo of my stepson and his fiance, to use at their upcoming wedding! Take a look at how amazing this Sparkle Wedding Photo Decor came out in just a few quick steps!
First thing I did was take the matting from the inside of the frame and set it aside, I then spray painted the frame white and then added some Antique Gold Rub N’ Buff to the raised detail on the frame. To add the sparkle to the photo, take your photo and add some double sided tape to the back in the corners. Lay your photo down on a stiff piece of carboard and secure.
I diamond dust all sorts of things but love doing photos the most. I use Mod Podge Matte Medium to adhere the Diamond Dust and before you begin decide what parts you want to Sparkle! I knew for this pic I wanted to do everything around the couple. I worked in small sections and spread a thin coat of Mod Podge and made sure to apply the Diamond Dust while the MP is still wet!
Move from section to section using the MP and then sprinkling the DD over until you have it all sparkled! The MP will look cloudy until it completely dries in a few hours! After your diamond dust is on you can go ahead and add any small embellishments like Swarovski crystals for added bling…I added on a small clear crystal to the engagement ring (links for crystal pen are below)!
Once your frame and photograph are completely dry reassemble your print into the frame. I opted to not use the glass but instead I added some Totally Dazzled bling into opposite corners for an even more dramatic and sparkled look!
