I made a picture frame out of Christmas junk, such as ribbon, candy canes, snow flake ornaments, beads, and so on.
What you will need for this craft:
~2 Candy Canes
~4 Popsicle sticks (thick)
~Red and white beads
~Pom Pom balls
~Extra Christmas decorative stuff
~Red/Green/White crafting foam
So I gathered as much Christmas junk as I could!
And I started crafting! I cut a square out of the foamy crafting stuff. I really don't know what it's called.
I grabbed materials I knew I would use on the picture frame, and started modeling it out how I wanted it to look like. You should always model it out before you glue, so you know exactly how you want it, and what it will look like after wards.
Then I used a hot glue gun to secure everything down.
Be careful with hot glue guns! They really hurt. Well... if you touch the glue right after you pumped it out the glue gun, it is still really hot, so don't touch it.
Once everything is secured down, let it dry for five minutes. Hot glue dries really fast.
After five minutes, you are done!
But... if you want something a little extra, you aren't done. If you want to hang it on the wall, or on the tree, or even make it stand up, glue either a ribbon, or a cardboard triangle to the back. I chose hanging, so I glued a piece of ribbon to the back to hang somewhere.
And now you are all done!
I hung mine on the tree.
I also grabbed a random picture from another frame, ripped an edge off to make it fit.
It turned out really cute!
If you do make this craft, you can add anything to your picture frame! That's why it is called Christmas junk. You can even make it after Christmas with left over Christmas stuff that you have laying around the house. Take something that has no value, and make it into something cute, and gift worthy.
I came up with this idea by myself, I didn't get it off of Pinterest. I was really excited about that. I am sure there are crafts like this out there, but this craft is my own idea.
Hope you enjoy!
