  • Step 1Paint your frame white. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 2Rip up small pieces of crepe paper in different shades of green. Coat your frame in slightly watered down PVA glue and cover your frame in the crepe paper pieces while the glue is still wet.
  • Step 3Gently paint over your frame with a coat of glitter paint. This will help stick any stray pieces of paper down and add a touch of sparkle. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Carefully trim the photo so that it doesn’t hang over the edge of your frame.
  • Step 5Use tape to secure it to the back of your frame.
  • Step 6When working with photos try photocopying your photos rather than cutting up an original!
