Decorative vintage pictures

Hi everyone!

I found quite a long time ago these cute vintage prints but can’t remember where. If you know who is the owner I beg you to leave me a comment so I can link them back to the original site. I fell in love with them and I decided to use them to do some cute pictures.

I cut a piece of plywood to the size of the print. Whilst I soaked the print in water and then placed it on a paper towel to dry a little, as my friend Mayca told me, and then I applied some homemade decoupage glue (half glue half water) over the plywood. You can use Modpodge instead, it works much better for me.

Then I only placed the print over and pressed with a plastic bag all over to remove any air bubbles. I really recommend the plastic bag because the print is still wet and it is much more delicate.

Once it was dry I did two little holes for the wire to hang, and protected it with two layers of matte varnish. (Modpodge will work great as well).

Hugs,

Pili
