HOW TO CREATE A CHRISTMAS CRAFT PICTURE FRAME

from:

Do you need a creative and unique gift idea for this Christmas? Tired of endless searches for a gift that does not empty your wallet? Giving the gift of a Christmas craft picture frame will certainly make a great impression this holiday! A Christmas craft picture frame not only says that you wish the recipient a Merry Christmas, but that you thought enough of them to spend time making something for them.

While Moms especially love receiving handmade items, friends and other family will appreciate the sentiment as well. The best thing about creating a Christmas craft picture frame, aside from the low price, is that they are always a wonderful item for discussion. Oftentimes in our home when we place homemade crafts on the tree, warm family moments and smiles are sure to follow. There is something to be said for unpacking the unique family decorations year after year and seeing something that was made especially for you.

Not all frames are made with plain wooden popsicle sticks and hang on the family tree! While there is a simple and innocent look to those types of frames, there are certainly other more elegant methods by which to create this craft. My favorite Christmas craft picture frame is taking an old wooden frame and re-using it with fresh paint, glitter and bows. The bigger the frame, the better as far as most people are concerned. This will allow for matting of the pictures or even creating an elaborate collage. It is best to always make sure that you have duplicates made of photos so that if any get damaged you do not lose the captured moment.

Many people will even go so far as to create a large collage complete with comments on the pictures. You can sand down the frame and paint it red, green, gold, or any combination. If the wood is thick, so add a narrow strip of green and red satin ribbon all around the frame in the middle. It is simple but elegant and with the photos, is a huge hit.

If you know a kid who would like to create a more detailed Christmas craft picture frame with your help, I suggest the following craft for you to try with them. Take a wooden picture frame with a flat face. Sand it down to remove previous paint then add a coat of clear gloss. Allow for proper ventilation and allow time to dry. Next, alternate painting the frame around the edge with red and green high gloss paint then allow for more time to dry. Use wood glue or a hot glue gun to affix decorations around the frame. Use your imagination and allow them to pick the decorations. A fun and productive time!
