Personalized Candie plaque with polka dots and glitter.

Mod Podge personalized plaque

I will be the first to admit that there is A LOT going on with this plaque that I made for my friend Candie Cooper. But, sometimes you sit down to make a project and you never know what you are going to end up with. I sat at my table with a wood plaque, and after digging around in my stash and playing a bit, this is what resulted. I kinda like it!

Gather These Supplies

Wood plaque
FolkArt Paint – Coffee Latte, Sky Blue, Warm White, Metallic Sequin Black
FolkArt Extreme Glitter – Hologram
Mod Podge Gloss
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
Scrapbook paper – Cosmo Cricket, Circa 1934 Collection
Maya Road Chipboard Set – Cameos
Maya Road Grosgrain Pleat Ribbon, Light Brown – 2 feet
Making Memories Tiny Alphas – Pink Ledger
Nostalgique stick pin – from my stash
Small paper circle with a sentiment
Rhinstones – 2
Craft Glue

Of course you need to get that plaque painted first. I used the Warm White and Coffee Latte around the edges and on the back.  You don’t need to paint the top (the paper is going there).

I used a fun little liner brush to add the blue.

Paint your chipboard cameos as well. I added some Hologram Extreme Glitter on these babies!

While all that is drying, cut the paper to fit the top of the plaque.

Add a medium layer of Mod Podge to the top of the plaque . . . place the paper on top, smooth and let dry for 15 – 20 minutes.

Give the entire plaque a top coat of Mod Podge. Let dry and add a second layer.

Add the ruffle ribbon to the back with craft glue and let dry. 

Start gluing everything down. I have no idea what I’m doing in this photo, actually. I can’t remember. Haha!

I used the stick pin to pierce a fabric circle, then put Dimensional Magic on top. Then I glued it onto the plaque.

I hope Candie will enjoy her new plaque. Now here’s an idea for you – grab a wood surface and dig through your stash. Embellish it to the nines, use Mod Podge and then tell me about it!
