I wanted to make frames with my 7 year old daughter.
The idea was that we would make frames out of things we found – twigs, cardboard and cloth, etc – and put in photos of animals! Our potential models were pigs, chickens, turkeys, cats….bees… oh, and horses of course!
We ended up making these popsicle stick frames. They were easy and look good! I still want to make the twig frames! Framed photos make great gifts and are fun to make!
Here are some more ideas:
Rustic Stick Frame
- Glue Twigs with Glue gun
- wrap with twine….
- glue photo in place

Craft Stick Sunflower Picture Frame
I have some colored craft sticks already so I liked the look of this.
- You just glue the sticks together,
- embellish with a sunflower cutout or whatever, let dry,
- then put a piece of cardboard on the back, leaving the top open to slide in a photo.
- Then you glue on a easel piece, magnet, or a ribbon to hang…
