Recently it was a friend of mines birthday, and I wanted to make her something special. She loves to have pictures taking of her and her nephew, and has another nephew or neice on the way. So I immediately thought of a picture frame as a gift. But, being the craftinista chica that I am, I couldnt simply just wrap up a boring old picture frame now could I? TIME TO GET CRAFTY! This is a ridiculously simply project that you can do in an hour or so. Its almost too easy to post as a tutorial but to be honest I just want to get back into the swing of posting these for you, so we are starting small. Baby steps kittens. I hope this inspires you to take something rather plain and make it your own.
First things first, gather your supplies. For this you will need your purchased picture frame, a paintbrush, brown paint, a glue gun, and some buttons. Dollar stores are great places to look for picture frames, as is Ikea.
Now we are going to paint our frame. I used Craft Smart acrylic pain in Espresso Brown. I watered it down a fair amount and did a few thinner coats. This way the wood grain was still visable beneathe the paint.
peace, love and pickles!
