DIY Photo Art!

Here is a FuN photo art idea that I made for my sons room!

I took this pic of him...and sent it into Costco to have it enlarged to a 20x30 which cost only $8.99! {LoVe the price...and how it turned out!}

Then I went to the dollar store, and bought a piece of foam board which happen to be the same size of my pic. {20x30} ...and bought some of this spray adhesive @ Walmart. {If you don't want that large of a picture...just cut the foam board down to the size you need... with a box cutter or exact-o knife.}

Then... I sprayed the foam board with the adhesive giving it a good, even, thin coat...

Then stuck the picture on ...and smoothed with my arms {because my fingers were sticky} starting from the center pressing to the outer edges trying to eliminate any air bubbles...then let completely dry.

And there ya have it!

Such a FuN and {inexpensive} way to add a personal touch to any room!
