That's How Thursday-Altered Picture Frame Tutorial

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday!

I'm super excited to be with you today and share
one of my FAVORITE alterable pieces!

I alter picture frames A LOT!
They make fun an inexpensive gifts!
{Graduations, Weddings, Birthday, Valentine's, Christmas, etc.}

The frame was $3.99
The accessories, when broken down came to $1.90
So here were the supplies I started with, MINUS the letters.
{I decided not to add the letters at the very end.}

Step 1: Gather SuppliesStep 2: Paint your frame with acrylic paints
{Set frame aside to dry, about 10 min}Step 3: Stamp your images on the acrylic paint with inks
{For this project, I used Moon Beams & Heart Strings}
Step 4: Alter according to style and taste and occasion.Step 5: Final step is to insert picture of your choice.
Pretty easy and simple alterable project as well as inexpensive.
You can use any kind of archival glue, they will hold, but I like
to use my Hot Glue Gun for that added strength.Hugs all and happy creating!
