Pictures on the outside of picture frames? It was a thought and I honestly wasn’t sure about it, thinking it might end up looking silly, but they turned out pretty cute!

You’ll Need

  • Picture frames (at least big enough that you can see 1/2 inch around the picture when placed inside. So for a 4×6 picture a 5×7 works great.)
  • Scrap decorative paper
  • Small Crafting Clothespins
  • Miscellaneous Buttons
  • Adhesive (we used hot glue)
  • Scissors and a pen


Directions

First, you’ll need to take the wrap off the frames. Ok, so this is a little obvious, but I’m not kidding when I say I had to tell my kids to do this 3 times before they actually started taking the wrap off of the picture frames…

  Everything except the glass should be removed from the frame.

Take the back cardboard and trace it on a piece of the scrap paper.

Cut it out.

Place the paper inside of your picture frame face down and close up the frame.

Glue one clothespin in the center of the top of your frame. You can make yours either vertical or horizontal. Glue buttons around the frame.

Clip pictures to frames and enjoy!

I'm a 30 year old stay at home mom of 4. I have been homeschooling for about 2 years now, and am a 2nd generation homeschooler. My oldest 2 children attended public school before we started homeschooling. I am a compulsive organizer and cleaner. I HATE clutter and crumbs! I also love to craft and come up with fun ideas to do as a family! Before staying at home I ran a daycare, then was the bar manager of a members only club. So not only do I have a background with children, besides my own, but I have a background with childhood education and a background in business and financial management.
