A quick post to show you my latest craft project, it is so easy to do and really effective.
Ive decorated some more photo frames using a decoupage technique this time I used a street map of Amsterdam and a paper souvenir bag that we got when buying postcards on holiday, to frame our holiday snaps from Amsterdam.
You Will Need:
Small paint brush
a photo to frame!
The gift bag and map were perfect materials because they weren't shiny or too thick (these can be diffcult to paint on smoothly and can cause problems when glueing at the corners).
First cut your desired paper into small squares or strips like in the picture below
Using PVA glue paint a small section of the wooden frame and put a square of the paper onto the glue then smooth over with more PVA glue using a paint brush. Keep going lining up the paper squares and overlapping slightly at the edges if you want.
When you have covered most of the frame you may need to leave it to dry so you can cover the rest without getting sticky fingers.
The PVA glue will give the frame a nice shine when it has dried.
Pop your photograph in the frame and display!
