25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!

“Joy to the nerds!”

Day 5: Decoupage Picture Frame

What you’ll need:

-a picture frame

-a couple comic books


-Mod Podge

-a paint brush

Start by taking your comic books (make sure they aren’t super collectible ones if you are going vintage.) Cut out a bunch of phrases, characters, and panels that you may want to use on your frame.

Then take your paint brush and apply the Mod Podge to your picture frame. It will dry clear, so use a liberal amount.

Once you’ve applied the comic to the frame, apply more Mod Podge over the comic to seal it in.

Continue the process until your entire picture frame is covered in comics and here’s what it can look like:

25 Days of (nerdy) Christmas!!!

On the first day of Christmas my true nerd gave to me…

A string of origami cranes for garland on your tree!!

Start off with 2 different colors of your choosing (I chose red and green for the Christmas season.) Fold into origami cranes.
And then string together with needle and thread to create the garland. You can make it as long or as short as you wish.
I’m aiming to have it go around the rim of the ceiling in my room. So I’ll need a pretty decent length!



Tomorrow: Doctor Who snowflakes!
