Handmade Jeweled Picture Frames


Jeweled photo frames are beautiful art pieces to lock your cherished memories in a dazzling case and these become all the more special if you add a dash of personal touch to it. One can easily make a handmade jeweled picture frame at home using a couple of things. Here's a quick step by step procedure to make a handcrafted jeweled picture frame at home. Check out how:

Material Needed:

  • 1 sheet of colored cardboard
  • 10 to 20 faux jewels, rhinestones, beads etc. in different shapes and sizes
  • 1 photograph
  • 1 holder pin
  • Newspaper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Craft glue

Step 1
First of all cover up your work area using a newspaper or an old table cloth. Now draw the desired shape on the cardboard with the help of a pencil. Once the shape is done cut it out and trace the same shape again on the remaining cardboard. Cut out this shape too and you will be ready with two similar cutouts.

Step 2
The next thing to do is to carve out the frame. For that, draw a relatively smaller shape(as that of the cut out cardboard itself) pattern on one of the cardboard sheets. Cut it out and you'll be ready with a hollow frame.
