I am so glad the Christmas season is here. Seriously, it’s my very favorite time to DIY! Check out these easy and adorable DIY Mini Picture Frame Christmas ornaments I made with mini picture frames, scrapbook paper, and spray paint (of course).
Mini Picture Frames (Michaels)
Silver spray paint (Rust-oleum Mirror Effect)
6×6 Christmas Paper Pack (Joyous by My Minds Eye)
Step 1: Tape it off (Totally just sung that like Taylor Swift)
Tape off the front of the frames. These Michaels frames have plastic where the glass would be in a big frame…and the plastic doesn’t come out, so I taped it off.
Step 2: Spray paint the frames.
Paint with silver spray paint (or whatever color you want). I normally use Valspar, but I had some Mirror Effect Rust-oleum handy so I used that. Rust-oleum is my runner up spray paint and it does a good job.
Step 3: Pick the paper.
I love to use 6×6 paper pads for small projects because the designs are small. You could use a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper but the designs will be bigger. Make sense? This Joyous paper pad by My Mind’s Eye is perfect! Plus, I am a little obsessed with vintage Santa Claus.
Step 4: Cut the Paper
Cut the paper to size and fill your frames! You can even stop here and display these framed holiday designs on your mantle or give them with a goodie as a neighbor gift.
Step 5: Apply the Ribbon
Cut some curling ribbon and make a loop. Secure it to the back with a couple of glue dots! Hang on the tree and you’re done!
