How to Make a Personalized Picture Frame : Supplies for Picture Frame


Then I’m going to show you how to make a picture
frame. Its a great project because it has a lot of different uses. It could just be
a great arts and crafts project for anybody or it could made as a gift for a family member,
for a grandparent to put a picture of a child inside. And I’ve done this project a lot with
kids before Mother’s day or Father’s day and they also like to give it to their parents
as a gift. So there’s a lot of uses for this project. Its a lot of fun and let me show
you the supplies that you’re going to need to make a picture frame. We’re going to need
a sheet of plastic. It?s a very clear piece of plastic and this is going to go over the
picture to protect it. We’re going to be making our frame from two pieces of cardboard and
the reason why we need two pieces is one is going to be the actual frame. We’re going
to cut around it and make a shape and the second piece is going to be the backing. We’re
also going to need a ruler and a scissors. I’m also going to be using a pencil and some
paintbrushes and I have a few markers on hand to help me with the decorations. I’m going
to need and Exacto knife and that’s going to help me make some holes into the cardboard
and also to help me cut it. And I’ll need some masking tape. I’ll need some paint and
glue. I’m going to be using some string to put on the back of the picture frame to hang
it. I’m going to need some white thick base paint. This is a type of paint that goes over
and puts a later on top of the picture frame. The reason that I need it is because I’m going
to be putting some gold metal fasteners into the cardboard to help me fasten the back of
the picture frame and then I’m going to cover it with masking tape. I’m going to cover the
fasteners with masking tape and I don’t want them to show through when decorating the picture
frame. So I’m going to apply this base paint over it, over the masking tape and that will
help me place a nice even coat of colored paint along the picture frame. I’m going to
be using a lot of beads for my decorations of the picture frame. I have seen this project
done with either small stones, different colored stones, or tiles or even seashells can make
a really nice decoration for this picture frame. But I’ll be using beads today. So now
we see the supplies that we need for our picture frame.
