Hello friends of Tatertots and Jello. I’m Melissa from No. 2 Pencil, and I am so excited to be here again, and to be contributing to Jen’s Happy Holidays series. There are so many great ideas and I’m thrilled to be a part of the fun. Today, I’m sharing a fun gift idea that everybody on your list will love, DIY Christmas Ornaments made from dollar store picture frames.
Here is what you will need to get started:
Wallet size picture frames from the dollar store
Acrylic craft paint in your choice of colors
Mod Podge – Glossy Formula
Super fine glitter in colors coordinating to paint
Hot glue gun
Small container for mixing
Twine or ribbon
Step 1: Gather your supplies. Disassemble frames and set glass, cardboard insert, and frame back aside.
Step 3: In a small container, mix Mod Podge and a generous amount of glitter together. Brush two coats of glitter mixture over frames, letting each coat dry.
This year, I’m planning on incorporating yellow on our Christmas tree, so I made these green, red and yellow frames to keep. I loved how they came out so much, I made a set for my sister too. She’s going to have a pink tree this year! I just grabbed these pictures off her Facebook page and had them printed on wallet size prints to surprise her.
