Christmas Ornaments from Dollar Store Picture Frames

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:

Supplies

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
Hot glue
Paint brush
Small container for mixing
Twine or ribbon

Step 1: Gather your supplies. Disassemble frames and set glass, cardboard insert, and frame back aside.

Step 2: Paint frame with two coats of craft paint. Let each coat dry.

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.

Step 4. Once frames are dry, reassemble frames with picture inside. Hot glue twine or ribbon to the back of the picture frame. I also popped the easel piece off the back of the frame so it would not be too bulky hanging on the tree. For vertical pictures, insert picture upside down and glue the hanger to the bottom of the frame. This will keep the glass from sliding out of the frame.

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.

These DIY Christmas Ornaments make a super cute, budget friendly personalized gift. They are so colorful and glittery, and mixing the glitter into the Mod Podge assures that the glitter stays on the frame and not on your floors.

  4. Gifting a picture frame is really a nice idea. I love to present photo frames to my friends and relatives on various occasions. Even better if Photo Frames are home made.

  5. Love the idea of mixing the glitter into the Modge Podge. I already have enough ornaments that leave glitter everywhere :P
