Homemade Picture Frames for Christmas…
A homemade picture frame is a meaningful gift for a child to give. Our homemade frames are easy to make from recycled cardboard, a little paint and some “bling”. Tuck a photo of the child inside, and it’s a perfect homemade gift for a toddler or preschooler to give to a parent or grandparent.
Supplies for homemade picture frames:

- metallic acrylic paint
- craft sequins or craft gems
- glitter or glitter glue
- scissors or X-ACTO Knife
- paint brush
Making your homemade picture frames:
Start by tracing a photo of your child onto a piece of cardboard. Then cut out a rectangle that’s larger than than photo that you’re using.
To cut out the center of the card, make sure it will overlap your photo a little bit on all sides, so this rectangle that you’re cutting will be smaller than the photo of your child. Cutting this inner rectangle is easiest if you use an X-acto knife.
Now have your child paint the front of the frame, and decorate with glitter glue and sequins or craft gems.
Aren’t they sweet?
