Sup Travellers?! In the video above Crystal Hethcote shows us a pretty neat trick that's not only creative but also mesmerizing. 

It's all about taking family portraits and embedding them on wood to adorn your living space and to have your memories engraved. And what makes this even cooler is that you can do all of it by yourself once you follow the simple steps in the video above. The total cost of it all may amount to roughly US$30.50:

– A piece of wood similar to the one used in the video can be found on their website under the product name, “Artminds® Basswood Rectangle Plaque.” This product costs anywhere from $7.99 – $14.99, depending on the size you purchase

– A bottle of “Mod Podge® Matte” sells for $3.49 on their site

– You can buy “Liquitex® String Gel Medium” on Michaels.com for $15.99

– A brush to apply the aforementioned products can be found for $2.99 at their stores or online

– Lastly, a printed-out photo of your choosing that you wish to immortalize amongst natural grains and knots is needed. Should you have a home printer, this shouldn’t cost you a thing. If not, you could head down to your local library or university and pay a handful of coins for some printed photos.

Why not give it a try? I think it's definitely worth it. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
