Painted Picture Frames- by kids

My kids really like to paint, all I have to do is find them something to paint on. Here are two frames, one is wood, the other a craft frame - both wonderful to paint on.

  • First, draw your idea/design with pencil on the frame.
  • Next, paint, and let dry.
  • Then, outline in permanent marker (if desired) to make it "pop".
  • Then apply a few layers of Mod Podge to protect it. (We applied a thick coat to our glitter hearts, so now they will never flake off!).

(6 years old)

My son (6 yrs) always paints houses and streets, where my daughter (8 yrs when painted) always paints themes. Either way,  they make great presents for family!

Sorry about the creepy faces, I try not to post my family online!
