Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
I have been slowly purging my room, getting rid of old nick nacks and clothes I haven't worn in years. By doing so, I have freed up so much shelf space that I now have room for more picture frames! I love displaying my favorite photos everywhere and instead of buying expensive frames, I decided to make some more of my own!
I'm going to show you step by step how to make 2 cool pictures frames. They're inexpensive and will take you little time!
What you'll need:
~Wooden picture frame- you can buy these at your craft store for $1
~Modge Podge ~Paint brushes ~Old newspaper ~Glitter (optional)
Step 1: Get all your materials out and cover your workspace with newspaper or an old tablecloth
Step 2: Rip your newspaper into a pile of pieces, you can always rip more later.
Step 3: Lightly paint a layer of modge podge onto the first piece of your frame and begin layering your newspaper bits.
Step 4: Continue adding light layers of modge podge as you keep covering the wood. Remember to cover the outer and inner edges so your entire frame is covered from all angles.
Step 5 (optional): If you want to add a little glitz, mix a little bit of glitter with a separate bit of modge podge together. Paint a light layer of the mixture over your frame and it'll dry with some glimmer!
Step 6: Choose a phrase or quote to add to it! I used letter clippings from old magazines to write out one of my favorite Marilyn Monroe quotes. I glued those on using modge podge as well!
Step 7: Let it dry!
**One thing to remember, the wooden frames will have holes in the back of the frame where the peg will go in so it can stand. If you're using words on your frame, make sure you're working with your frame the right way so you can stand it!
What you'll need:
~Wooden frame ~Paint of any color ~Tacky glue ~Old puzzle pieces
Step 1: Paint a light layer of any color on your wooden frame. Don't forget your outer and inner edges too!
I chose a yellow which coordinated with my puzzle pieces. I do this because you'll see some of the frame when it's complete and a pop of color ties it all together!
Step 2: The paint will only take a few minutes to dry and when it is you can begin to layer on your puzzle pieces. Use the tacky glue to place your first layer of puzzle pieces.
Step 3: When your first layer is complete, you can either leave it or add a second layer of puzzle pieces on top of the first layer. You can do as many layers as you'd like!
When you're done with the layers you choose, you're done with the frame! It's as easy as that!
**Fun tip, if you don't want to use puzzle pieces, use old buttons!
