I took the kids to Ikea yesterday, I wanted to pick up a Christmas gift for Parker. While there, I picked up a pack of three frames for $1.99+ tax of course. They are unfinished, leaving plenty of opportunity to beautify!
Here’s how I beautified this unfinished frame….
First I took apart the frame.
I picked some paper, trimmed it to size, and folded the paper up around the frame. After I folded up the paper, I used a bone folder to define the crease.
I also cut a square out of each corner so I could wrap the paper around the frame.
When I was ready to adhere the paper to the frame, I used my PPA (gloss). I just squeezed it onto the frame, then folded the paper up, one side at a time.
Once each side was covered, I cut an “X” in the paper (the center of the frame), and I wrapped the paper around the edge, and towards the back, so the inside part of the frame is covered with paper also.
I let the frame sit over night, after applying a thin coat of PPA Gloss. And that’s it. Done and done!!
You coul use magazines, fabric, paper… you could also embellish the frame with stickers, words, rub-ons, etc.
