Make this picture frame from a piece of thick, flexible, clear plastic (acetate). It’s available at craft stores, fabric stores, and hardware stores. This is a great project for elementary school 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 Christmas tree ornament.
- Thick, flexible, clear plastic
- A photo to frame
- A hole punch
- Yarn, twine, or other thick thread
- Optional – Stickers
- Optional – Thick needle
Put the second piece of plastic on top of the first, matching the holes exactly.
Using yarn, twine, embroidery floss, or other thick thread, “sew” up the edges of the frame. Older children can use an upholstery needle. For younger ones, a bit of nail polish put on the end of the string (let it dry first) will act like a needle.
Attach a short loop of yarn for hanging the frame.
