What you will need

  • A wooden frame
  • Seashells
  • Hot glue
  • Small bowl
  • Paint brush
  • Sand
  • Regular Elmer’s glue

What you need to do

  • The easiest way to make your frame have a beachy theme to your frame is to glue sand all around it. Take some simple craft glue and pour some of it into a small bowl. Use a paint brush to slather glue all around the edges of the frame. Before the glue dries, pour the sand that you have directly onto the frame. Brush off any excess while obviously still leaving enough on there to cover the frame.
  • Leave the frame to dry over night.
  • Once the frame is dry, you can take any liberty to add whatever extra decorations you’d like to it. This can be something like hot gluing some seashells or starfish around the frame to adorn the sides.

Another suggestion that’s optional is to buy a small wooden plaque which you can paint yourself and paint on the words, “Beach Adventure” should you so choose. I actually recently made picture frames for my entire family for the holiday season and they made great gifts to give. What’s so much fun about these if you don’t have to limit yourself to just making a beach themed frame. You can also get black picture frames with some white matting and you can decorate the matting around the edge. This makes for fun ideas for pictures that you can put in them.

These are super fun ideas that make good presents and crafts for yourself. What other ideas to you have to for pictures? Let us know in the comments below!
