Fun Foam Picture Frame
More Kinder Crafts
Make this simple picture frame from a piece of fun foam (it's available at craft stores). This is a great project for elementary school age children who want to frame their school picture! It's also great for a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift or as a Christman tree ornament.

For each Frame you will need:
  • A piece of fun foam a few inches larger than the photo
  • a photo to frame
  • a hole punch
  • scissors
  • glue (like Elmer's glue or a glue stick)
  • about 6 inches of thin ribbon or yarn (for hanging the frame)
  • fabric paint, sequins, buttons, yarn, ribbon, feathers, etc. (all are optional decorations)


Choose a photo to frame.

Decide on a shape for your frame and draw it on a piece of foam. Cut a piece of foam that is at least 1 inch larger than the photo on all sides.

All sorts of shapes look good. To cut an oval or heart shape, draw half the shape on a folded piece of paper, then cut it. Use this template for cutting the plastic.
Cut a display hole in the other piece of foam (the piece that will be the front). This hole can be any shape you like, just make sure that it is smaller than the entire photo and is big enough to show the important parts of the photograph.

Put glue on the BACK of the frame.
Glue the back of the frame and glue your picture in place. Cut a thick piece of paper for the back of the frame (it should be slightly bigger than your picture but smaller than the frame). Glue it to the back of the frame.
Using a hole punch, punch a hole towards the top of the frame.

Decorate with foam cut-outs, yarn, buttons, feathers, ribbon, fabric paint, sequins, etc.
Tie a thin, short ribbon (about 6 inches long) through the hole punch hole. This will be used for hanging the frame.
