Picture Frame Decorating

You will need:

  • Wooden frames

  • Hot glue gun or strong wood adhesive, or craft glue

  • Paints and brushes

  • Coloured Paper

  • Objects for the decorating - shells, leaves, acorns, buttons, glass beads etc.

We suggest using wide wooden frames with a flat surface, this makes it easier to stick the objects to the frames. Oftentimes, you can find these frames at any local craft or dollar store.


  1. Remove the glass from the frames before you begin.

  2. Place newspaper on your table to protect it before you start and have paper towels available to wipe any excess glue or paint off hands.

  3. If you decide to paint your frame, we suggest doing that first and allowing it to dry overnight or for at least a couple of hours before glueing any decorative objects on the frame.

  4. Place the objects in random order or in a pattern of their choice, using the glue. If using a hot glue gun be sure to supervise carefully

  5. After decorating put frames aside and let them dry overnight before putting the glass back in them and the back of the frames on.
