The frames are great for decorating your favorite photos, but they can be very expensive. Make them yourself instead of buying them is the best way to get nice frames that fit perfectly to your photos without having to go bankrupt. A frame is the perfect gift for a loved one. In addition, you can make several to adorn the walls of your house.
Use cardboard or cardboard
Cut a piece of cardboard or cardboard and give it the shape of a rectangle. This will be the size of the frame. Depending on how broad you want it to be, make it a little larger than the photo on each side.
Cut a rectangle in the middle of the cardboard. This rectangle should be slightly smaller than the photo.
Paint the frame. Paint it in one color (or paint patterns and figures). You can use markers, crayons, pens or colored pencils to decorate the frame.
Glue some paper ornaments. Cut out paper shapes (stars, hearts, animals, letters, symbols, etc.) and glue them onto the frame.
Be creative with your decorations. Use scraps of cloth, buttons, beads, frosting, stickers, or anything else you can imagine. Glue these ornaments on the frame and any other pattern that comes to mind.
Make the back of the frame. Cut out a rectangle from another piece of paper. This rectangle should be slightly smaller than the frame, so that it easily covers the center.
Glue firmly and smoothly on three sides, making sure to leave one side open so you can put the photo.
Put the picture inside the frame. Slide it through the side that you left open in the back of the frame.
