This project used a Dollar Store frame and some scrapbook stickers to display my son's favorite pic of his dog back when they were both youngsters.
Items you need are:
  • A favorite photo
  • A picture frame
  • Scrapbook stickers of whatever the theme of your picture is
  • Acrylic paint (in the color you prefer)
  • Scissor (to crop the photo)
  • Beading wire (optional - to make a loop on the back of the frame to hang it up)
Take glass out of frame and paint the frame the color of your choice (I used black gloss). After the paint is dry, stick on the stickers around the frame. Select the photo you want to use (preferable the same size of the photo or a larger one that you can crop to fit. If you need to crop the photo, place the glass on the photo and move it around until you get get what looks best, then trace around the frame and cut the picture out (For Mother's Day, Walgreens offered free 8X10 reprints and I had the pic blown up then trimed it to fit the 5X7 frame).
Optional: If the hangers on the back of the picture are too small to fit what you want to hang to secure the picture, create a loop with the jewelry wire and loop it through the hanger then twist off the ends.
