Glitter Picture Frames DIY
This is an easy Tutorial for making some lightweight DIY Glitter Picture Frames that you can hang on your Christmas Tree! These ornaments can be made with any sort of pictures that you like inside. I used Vintage Graphics from my site, but you can customize however you like. Use them to frame up your kids, or grandkids, artwork… or frame up photos of family and friends, these would all be special pieces that you will treasure for years to come on many Christmas Trees in the future!
Supply List for Glitter Picture Frames DIY:
- 11″ x 9″ Laser Cut Wood Frames (these are slightly smaller than the ones that I got at Michaels)
- School Glue Gel
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
- German Glass Glitter
- Diamond Dust
- Tinsel Ribbon (from Michaels)
- Printable Graphics -printed on white Cardstock (see below)
Printables for the Project:
As I said above, you can use whatever images or pictures you like with these frames. But if you like the look of the ones that I used, you can grab the free Printables below.
Step 1: Spread a layer of the School Glue Gel on the wooden frames.
Step 2: Sprinkle the Glitter on to the frame and tap off excess. Allow to dry completely.
Step 3: Print out the Printables from above and trim them up to fit the frames. Then apply the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the areas that you want to highlight with a snow effect.
Step 4: Sprinkle on the Diamond Dust, to the areas where you applied the Dimensional Magic. And tap off the excess and let dry completely.
Step 5: Apply School Glue Gel to the back of the frame, just along the edge.
Step 6: Place your printed graphic face down, onto the glue and press firmly. Blot up any excess glue with a towel. Once it’s dry you can add a ribbon to hang it. I used some tinsel ribbon from Michaels, it was wired and easy to twist into shape.
So pretty! This is the one that I did with the Dove …
