Kids Craft Corner – Make Your Own Picture Frame

I love pictures and have a picture wall to prove that one and Stella loves making pictures – so what better way to spend an afternoon then decorating and make our own personal picture frames.  We used the leftover pieces of the toilet paper rolls from our Christmas wreath, beads, paint and our imaginations! We first painted our frames allowed them to dry and then decorated them – so this was a morning and afternoon project.  It always amazes me the different artistic outcomes when people start with the same materials!

Making Your Own Picture Frame

Materials Needed

Picture frame (I picked some wooden ones up at Michaels for $1)
Paint (assorted colors)
Paint brushes
Beads/ decoration materials
Toilet paper tube, cut into even rings, about 1/4″ – 1/2″

1. Paint your picture frame and allow to dry.

2. If you are going to use rings from the cardboard tubes, cut them.  You can paint them or leave them plain.  We left ours as is.  You can leave the rings or join to form a flower.

3. Take whatever decorating materials you have, place in the center of the work place and start imagining, creating, designing and gluing.  Allow the glue to dry and set.



4. Display your frame with your favorite picture!

Let your inner creativity play!!!!
