Crackle Paint Eat Signs

Kitchen decor has always been one of my favorite things to do- maybe because I love food so much, maybe because I decorate with fruits and vegetables- who knows. Anyway, the kitchen was one of the first rooms in the house we had decorated. But there was one little spot that needed a little something so I made these cute little wall hangings.



I found a link on Pinterest for how to make crackle paint out of Elmer's glue. I decided to give it a whirl and it worked like a dream. I was a little nervous when I went to bed that night because it didn't look that great, but when I woke in the morning the paint had dried and the crackles were perfect!

I bought the letters from Hobby Lobby and the plaques from Wal-Mart.  So here is how I made these cute little signs.

Paint the letters using this tutorial. Don't judge the crackle until it dries completely!



(This is what it looks like just starting to dry)

Cut scrapbook paper out to fit over the plaque.



Paint around the outside of the plaque where the paper won't cover.


Put ModPodge in thin layer all over plaque, place paper on top and ModPodge into place.


Once the ModPodge has dried glue the letters in place. Hang and enjoy!!



I will be linking up with some of These Parties!


Thanks for stopping by!
