SUMMER RASPBERRY PHOTO FRAME
This month our Bostik Blogger challenge theme was scrapbooking. After we were married, I became an avid scrapbooker and captured so any memories in huge 12″ x 12″ padded albums – but as a busy mom, it’s been too much of a challenge to keep up with it and so this blog is essentially my scrapbook – minus the pretty embellishments [which are all in my garage] – along with the photographs and canvases that we have displayed on the walls of our home.
I’m always on the look out for a pretty little frame and so we decided to make our own, inspired by our favourite Summer berry.
Our Summer Raspberry Photo Frame is another simple craft that means even your toddler can join in. I’m not saying they won’t paint everything in sight, but they can achieve something cute and even presentable as a gift.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Small plywood photo frame
Paintbrushes [I used a large flat one and a pointy one for the edges]
Paint [I used red and red glitter children’s ready mixed paints]
Bostik Blu tack or foam pads
Here’s how to do it:
That frame is so cute!! That frame would match the decor in my living room perfectly! I want one 🙂
This is so cute, and couldn't have come at a better time. We are putting together a berry-picking activity and this would be the perfect craft to go along with it. Thanks so much!
wow very nice. I like to see that there are challanges like this where you can show your creativity. I am going to try this photo frame.thanx for sharing (brook)
Aww, that is so cute! I love the colors and the fact that it is so summery. This would be a fun project to do over the summer with kids.
What a cute little frame. I like that it is simple enough that even the toddler can get involved and help out.
Such a pretty craft! I love that colour…this would be a great activity to do after picking some berries 😉
This is such an adorable craft! My children and I decorated photo frames before and it was so much fun! The buttons are such a great idea!
Very creative! Love the colors. I like taking photos and printing them so this idea is so cool and saves me money too.
What a great craft! I am working Vacation Bible School with the kids and I think that they would love to make this! Thanks!
How fun! I wonder if we can do it with strawberries because we love to go strawberry picking!
This is such a cute craft. I think my girls would enjoy making this.
Cute! My kids would love doing a craft like this! Thanks for sharing!
This is very cute and so creative, I have not done scrapbooking since I was a kid and even then was never good at it. Definitely loving this frame
This is a really adorable photo from. It is so artistic and nicely crafted.
This is a really cute idea indeed and them raspberries look so good. Yummy!!! I will have to make these frames with my great niece and nephew this weekend. They would love to give these out as gifts. Thanks for sharing.
Aww what a sweet little frame. Having a magnet on the back would make it into something pretty for the fridge too. So cute 🙂
Oh that is such a cute craft. I will have to make one of these with my girls. I know they would love it.
Aww now this is such a cute craft. I totally like how it was done. lovely!
This is cute. I am not crafty at all so I'll be asking for my toddler's help.
I was a little bemused by the blue-tack packaging for a moment there… We're in Sweden, so I haven't seen blue-tack for a while, they look & sound very much like feminine product packaging!! I really thought you were making something out of lady 'pads' as they like to call them here!
Hahaha…It's been a long day!
