Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Take frame apart and paint frame in any color you’d like. I used orange so it can stand out on the wall. I also used gloss paint for a shiny finish.

  • Step 2

    Print photos using any office program on your computer. The frame I used had 3 5 X 7 openings for pictures. I decided to print photos in black and white since I was using a lot of color in other areas.For the names, I typed them using an office program and glued them to the mat using a glue stick.

  • Step 3

    I glued pictures down on paper and put the frame together.

  • Step 4

    I purchased 3 decorative wooden pieces at a craft store. Using a glue gun, glue clothespin to each wooden piece. Let dry.

  • Step 5

    Once it dries, adhere each piece to the front of the frame. I glued outside pieces at the very end so their artwork wouldn’t overlap.

  • Step 6

    Love it!
