DIY large family photo

I saw this idea on Pinterest HEREStart out by taking a photo to Staples and have them print it out on engeneer paper for $4.99.  Then I created the shape that I wanted for the wood (underlayment board, $15.00) on photoshop and used out projecter to get it on the wood........
cut it out with a jig saw.....
Sand the edges......
Prime it......
Paint it.....I then put a brown glaze on it.....
I got a spray adhesive and sprayed the board and laid the photo down on it and smoothed it out.....
Made Shane hold it in a few different places.....
and finally hung it here.....

Pretty sure if and when I get a house, I'll have to hire you to help me decorate and make cute crafts!

That's awesome Shanell! I wish I could find the initiative to do some of my pinterest likes! I still really want to make some frames like yours! I have never found any that I liked as well... And our house is almost finished after the whole water incident...which means I get to redecorate!!!!
