Have you taken any summer photos that you'd like to keep front and center as the season fades? Next time you're in a craft store, pick up one or two inexpensive paper mache or wood frames... With a little paint and a stencil you can make that $4.00 frame something special. I did this one for some of my Littles to keep in their bedroom so I picked mint green and soft coral colors and a fun DecoArt stencil!

Items needed:

  • Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylics 2oz - Shrimp
  • Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylics 2oz - Coastal Waters
  • Americana Multi-Surface Metallics 2oz - Yellow Gold
  • Americana Stencils 12x12 - Segmented Swirls
  • Photo Frame
  • Assorted Brushes

Tape the stencil in place and start adding paint here, there and everywhere...

I added the coral color in addition to the minty green to give the frame a little interest...

This is the quickest project! And if you buy smaller frames, wouldn't they be cute on a buffet table with the name of each dish inside where the photo goes! Using paint and stencils, you can personalize the frame to any theme or color palette!

Love this idea, and would be adorable for favors at a wedding as place cards!
