Have you heard of the Mod Podge Sheer Colors? They are quite simple really: regular Mod Podge with coloring already added to it. It’s handy because you don’t have to do any mixing yourself . . . and it’s not just for dyeing jars.

You can use it as a regular decoupage medium too! That’s what I did with my latest kids’ craft – a heart frame perfect for Valentine’s Day. So easy for children to make, and if you would like, you can join in the fun too! Here’s how I made my frame.

Use the Pink Sheer Colors to adhere the tissue paper circles to the front of the frame. Starting in one corner, add Mod Podge to the frame, then put the circles down right on top.

Keep adding Mod Podge and circles, overlapping as you go. Cover the entire front of the frame.

You can fold the edges of the tissue paper circles over the edge of the frame and Mod Podge them down – or you can let the frame dry and trim the edges using the scissors or craft knife.
