We have an interesting and budget friendly idea to turn your bedroom or living room wall into a beautiful memory wall. With the photo frame DIY craft, you can turn the walls into a beautiful paradise of memories.
Let’s learn to make a beaded, decorative photo frame using some handy items:
Things You Will Need To Prepare A Fancy DIY Cardboard Photo Frame
Take the cardboard and using the ruler and pencil, mark measurements. Keep the breadth of the cardboard 10 inch while the length of the cardboard 7.5 inch. In this frame, we will also take 4-inch measurements from all the sides to give a border to the frame. Mark all the lines using pencil and ruler.
Step 2: Prepare the base of inner frame
Cut the inner cardboard using a cutter or scissors. You will get a rectangle shaped photo frame with a small rectangle to place your picture. This is the raw base of the frame ready. We now need to prepare the inner frame of the photo frame where we can easily fix the picture. For this, take another cardboard and draw 3 stripes of 1-inch width and 3 other stripes with the width of 0.5 inches. Stick 1 0.5 inch strip of the 1-inch stripe and stick it to the cardboard. Slice down the remaining strip using a cutter. Cut it slant to give a perfect shape.
Again stick a 0.5-inch strip on a 1-inch stripe and stick it to the other side of the cardboard. Slice down the extra portion and give it a slanting shape with the cutter. Similarly, perform this for all the 3 sides of the frame. With this, you will get a perfect inner framing for your frame where you can insert the picture. The top side will be open from where you can insert the picture easily.
Step 4: Cover the frame with color sheet
Once the back side of the frame is done, it’s now time to decorate the front side. For this, take a color sheet (we have chosen red) and take the measurements of the frame and keep an extra 0.5-inch space to prepare a fold. Cut the color sheet using a cutter and press the cutter on 0.5 extra spaces to bend it flexible. Cut the sides to fold the paper and also trim out the internal space for the picture.

Step 5: Stick the color sheet to frame
Now, place the cardboard photo frame on the ready color. Apply glue on the entire cardboard frame and spread it evenly. Stick the color sheet frame n the cardboard and fold the 0.5-inch extra sheet in the inner side of the frame and stick it using glue. This way, you will get a perfectly finished inner and outer border of the photo frame. Use the scale and glue to bend the folding and stick it thoroughly to the frame. Insert a picture sized cardboard or color sheet inside the frame.
Step 6: Prepare the frame holder
If you want to place this frame on tables, prepare a holder for this frame or you can hang it on the wall. For preparing the holder, take a cardboard sheet and cut it. Keep it a little narrow from the top and broad from the bottom. Keep the size of the cardboard after comparing it with the top of the frame. Stick this holder with the back of the removable sheet using color sheet pieces. Cut 2 small color sheet pieces and apply glue to both the pieces. Stick half piece on the back of the removable piece and a half on the holder. You can easily fold the holder with this trick.
It’s now time to decorate the frame. Decorate the inner border of the rectangle using pearls. Stick the pearls with glue and cover the entire rectangle. Take a beautiful white lace border and stick it on the broad 4-inch border on all the sides. Apply glue to the border and stick it. At the sides, trim the border slant to make it look perfect. Apply glue using the glue gun and stick the lace on all 4 sides. To frame the outer border of the rectangle, get a pearl chain and stick it to all the 4 sides using glue. Neatly stick the lace using glue and give a perfect finishing touch t the frame.
To make the frame more decorative and unique, keep sticking some golden beads on the lace border according to the pattern of the border. Insert your picture and then insert the removable sheet with the holder and place it wherever you want!

Steps You Need To Follow To Make A DIY Cereal Box Craft
Let’s start with the cereal box. Take the cereal box and open the bottom of the box using a cutter. Also, open one side of the cereal box and this way, the entire cereal box will open up. Using the cutter cut the 2 squares from the side and the extra portion. Take a cardboard sheet and take measurements of 2 inches and cut a 2-inch long strip. Stick this 2-inch strip to the cereal box on one side using packing tape.
With this extra layer, you will be able to close the box properly. To prepare the inner cover of the box, apply glue on all the sides of the open box and in the center. Spread the glue using a piece of cardboard and stick a color sheet in the open box. Using a tissue paper, stick the color sheet to the box and let it get dry. Cut the extra color paper using a cutter or scissors.
Once the inner covering is done, we will prepare the outer layer for the cereal box. Take a dark pink color paper and apply glue to the entire paper. Stick the paper on the other side of the cereal box and stick the paper thoroughly. Cut the extra color sheet using a cutter and remove it. Keep the pink paper 0.5 inches broader than the actual size to frame the cereal box perfectly. This way, you will get an open cereal box with one side covered with light pink paper and other side covered with dark pink paper.
To make the box more decorative, use a printed paper sheet. Stick this printed sheet on the front side of the cereal box and similarly, use another printed sheet to cover the back of the box. Now, it’s time to seal and fold the entire box. Thus, apply glue on the upper and lower bends of the box and fold the box. Let the glue stick properly while you press the box. Give a proper finishing touch to the box by folding all the small extra portions.
We are making a horizontal bag and thus, keep the lengthy side open. Seal other three sides using glue. With this, the entire box will get sealed properly. For flexible opening and closing, we will stick a Velcro in the box. Open the Velcro and stick it to the bottom and inner top of the box. It’s now time to make the box look decorative.

Steps You Need To Follow To Make A DIY Accordion Paper Basket
Let’s start with the color paper/sheet. Take a ruler and mark 9.5cm markings on the sheet. Make 3 such 9.5 cm markings and draw the lines using ruler and pencil. Cut all the three portions using scissors. Now, take one portion, fold it from the center. Open it and again make 2 folds form the paper. Open it again and make 3 portions. Similarly, make multiple folds form this paper. Now this paper is ready for an accordion style fold. Thus, fold the paper back and forth in thin strips just like an accordion.
Once the fold is ready, open it up and you will get a perfect accordion style shape. Prepare such 4 accordion style formations. Now take a broad cardboard strip and apply some glue over it. Stick it on the pink color paper. Apply glue on the other side of the cardboard and stick the remaining paper on the other side. This way, both sides will be covered with the pink color sheet.
Now place the cardboard on the color sheet and trace the shape of the cardboard using the pencil. With a ruler, mark the measurements with a ruler. Again make 9.5 cm markings with a little gap between all the portions. Now, we have a middle portion of the cardboard size and the 2 sides with the broadness of 9.5cm. Now, using a cutter, make slight bends on the sides and fold them. We will stick the cardboard strip on this paper sheet. Thus, apply glue on the bottom of cardboard sheet and stick it in the center portion of the sheet.
The strong base of the accordion bag is prepared. Now we will make the sides of this basket. For this, stick the accordions we made previously on the paper sheets. Apply some glue on the sides of the let paper and stick the accordion shape. Similarly, stick the accordion shapes to the other sides. With this, all the sides of the paper basket are ready.
To provide support to the paper sides, we will make a base. For this, take a cardboard sheet and cut 2 boat shape formations from the sheet. Stick color paper on these shapes and stick this boat-shaped cardboard on both the sides of the accordion. This way, the basket will get a strong support from the base.
Now, we will make a strip or handle from the color paper. Take a long and slightly broad cardboard sheet and cover it with the pink color paper using glue. Once the strip is ready, stick it on the sides of the paper basket. Use adhesive or glue to stick the strip to the basket properly.
Once the handle is ready, it’s now time to decorate the basket. Take some decorative flowers and stick the bunch of such artificial flowers on the handle. Also, stick some pearls and beads on the handle using glue in a random fashion. When the handle is ready, you can decorate the basket. Stick the pearls on the accordion and on the sides using glue. Cover the interior as well exterior of the basket.

Take the quilling needle and 4 mm long pink quilling strip. Quill the strip using the needle and prepare quilled small rolls. You can apply some glue at the end and stick the roll. Prepare such multiple rolls using the quilling stripes. We need to give a ‘drop’ or flower petal shape and a 3d effect to the rolls. Take the roll and press the inner spirals using the needle. Using the tweezer, stretch the topmost layer, press the roll and prepare a petal shape. Perform this with all the rolls you made.
Now, choose yellow colored quilling strips for a unique look. Prepare the rolls just like the pink quilling strips and apply glue at the ends to stick the rolls. Make such multiple yellow quilled rolls and press the inner spirals of the roll using the needle for the embossed effect. We won’t change the shape of these rolls as we will use it in the center of the flower and thus, will keep them around.
It’s time to prepare a flower using both the quilled rolls. Take the yellow roll, place it in the center and arrange the pink quilled petals around the yellow roll. Using craft glue, stick the petals to the yellow roll and form a beautiful flower. Prepare such 5-6 flowers for making the neckpiece.
It’s now time to arrange the flowers in a necklace pendant shape. Arrange the flowers as a pendant. Apply some glue and stick all the 5 flowers and let it dry. Arrange the flowers with no gaps in between and make sure you make a broad U shape. Stick all the flowers together in an easy way. Turn the flowers set around and apply glue to the flowers to let them stick properly.
To make the necklace more pretty and stylish, we will add some beads. On the yellow quilted rolls, apply some glue and stick beads on all of them. Use tweezers to stick the beads without getting glue on your fingers.
We now need to prepare the chain of the necklace. We will make a chain using craft wire which can remain stable and can easily accommodate the quilled paper pendant we made. Thus, prepare 2 pink quilled paper roll as before. Take a craft wire and bend it from the center. Insert the pink quilted roll in the wire. Now start filling both the sides of the wire with golden decorative beads. Once completed, merge the ends of the wire using plier. Similarly, prepare the other side of the chain using the same method. Pick a wire, insert the roll, fill with beads and connect the ends using pliers.
On one wire chain, attach a jumper while on the other attack a hook. Use the pliers to carefully attach the hooks. Choose golden jumpers and hooks to make the chain look even and gorgeous.
Once, both the wire ends are ready it’s time to stick the pendant to this chain. Take the quilled paper floral pendant and stick it to the chain using glue. Apply some glue on the edges of the pendant and on the role of the chain and connect them. Let it get dry and here is your amazing quilled paper necklace ready.
