One great way to make personalized picture frame crafts is to buy a generic frame and then decorate it. This sounds simple, and it is relatively simple. You will need a metal or wooden picture frame that is basically plain in style and has not been painted or had a sealer on it. You get to paint it as part of the craft. You can get any color paint you want and start the project. You will want to separate the glass from the frame, while you work.
One way to change this is to buy a frame to color you like, so you can save the painting step. Then you can get paint tubes and squeeze out a decorative pattern on the frame. There are many paints to choose from, you can get metallic paints, shiny paints, sparkly paints and more. Another fun way to change the painting look is to make a faux finish on your personalized picture frame craft. Faux finishes can be fun and a change from the ordinary picture frame.
After you have painted the picture frame you can then attach some fun embellishments or accessories to make the picture frame even more personalized. These embellishments will stay on better if you use a hot glue gun, especially if they are not flat accessories. Accessories and personalized accents can include seashells, beads, buttons, etc. Have fun personalizing the picture frame craft and then putting in a treasured picture.
There are other ways that one can make personalized picture frame crafts. You can get a box frame and then make a great scene to put on the frame. The box frames are usually plastic and will have the ability to stand on their own because they have a thick width. The clay you will want to use is Crayola Model Magic Fusion Compound or something similar. The beauty of using Crayola Model Magic Fusion Compound is that it will dry to the touch overnight and dries completely in two to three days.
After you put the great picture you have into the box frame, start being creative and make your craft. Use the model compound to create a scene that will compliment the photo. For example if the picture is of you at the beach, create a beach scene out of the model compound. Use your imagination and make the scene fun and possibly exaggerated.
It’s a fun way to remember the fun time you had when the picture was taken. Other examples can include a picture of a day at the zoo; make fun animals for the frame. Another possibility is a picture of a favorite game that was attended or played in, then use the frame to make the playing field or court. It can be great fun to make these types of personalized picture frame crafts and the memory will stay with you longer. Use your imagination and think outside the box.
Another way to make personalized picture frame crafts is to personalize the mats that are in the frame. This way you can get the frame you want and still be able to personalize the frame. The best mats are white ones that can be decorated. The decorations can be simple or something you draw or even just some matching stickers.
When making this type of picture frame craft you will need to keep the decoration mostly flat. This way they will be easier to fit into the frame. But there are lots of fun and decorative accessories that are mostly flat and will not get ruined in the frame. For example there are stickers, paint, and fabric to name a few.
When you are making personalized picture frame crafts start with a basic picture frame and add your own style to the frame. You can also get a box frame and make a fabulous picture frame out of model compound. Then for the simpler type of picture frame craft, you can simply decorate the mat that goes into the frame around the picture. How to make a personalized picture frame craft will depend on you and your personal preferences.
