Inspired by these art frames from Anthropologie, I set out to transform simple wood frames into beautiful pieces of wall art. With a little clay and paint, you too, can turn basic frames into pieces that are a little bit more sophisticated. Follow along as I show you how to create your own embellished DIY wood frame.
- Wide Wood Photo Frames
- Craft Paint in Your Choice of Colors
- Wood Glue
- Mod Podge Molds (I used Royal Icons Molds)
- Sculpey Clay
- Krylon Triple Thick Glaze
Step one. Press the clay into the Mod Podge mold and remove excess.
I glued steampunk butterfly jewelry charms onto cardstock to make pretty pieces of wall art. You could even add your own artwork to these mini DIY wood frame galleries. Have fun crafting and creating!
