Steps For Preparing A DIY Photo Frame

Step 1: Mark measurements of Frame

DIY 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

Photo 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.

Step 3: Prepare all the sides of inner frame

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

Photo Frame DIY Craft

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.

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

DIY Photo Frame From Cardboard

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.

Here is beautiful and stylish recycled wall hanging DIY key holder you must try!

Step 7: Decorate the frame

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.

Steps You Need To Follow For Making A DIY Leaf Bowl

Step 1: Soften the clay and prepare the rough shape

DIY Leaf Bowl

Let’s start with making the artificial leaves. Take some shilpkar clay and make it soft with your hands. You will need a lot of shilpkar clay as we are preparing huge leaves from it. Thus, take a piece of clay, soften it and place it in a glass slab. We need thin and long leaves and for this, you need to roll the clay. Take a plastic bottle and roll the clay just like a ‘chapati’.

Step 2: Use natural leaves to give clay a leaf shape

Now take the original rose leaves and place it on the rolled thin and long clay piece. This is a great idea to trace the leaves and the stems on the clay and give the clay leaves a very natural look. Place the leaves giving a proper shape to the clay and with the help of cutter; carve the clay in leaf shape. We need to stick these leaves in the plastic bowl thus, measure the length of leaves and carve it into the shape which can be easily assembled with the bowl.

Step 3: Prepare the bowl and stick the clay leaves

If your plastic bowl has an upper edge, cut it using a scissor to allow the leaves stick to the bowl. Remove the clay leaf from the slab and stick it on the outer side of the plastic bowl. Slowly remove the original leaf from the clay leaf. Similarly, make some more clay leaves and stick the leaves to cover the complete outer part of the plastic bowl.

Your plastic bowl is now covered with beautiful clay leaves with an awesome shape. Let the clay stick properly to the bowl and keep it aside for some time to let it get dry. After few minutes, we will start decorating the bowl again. We will now cover the bowl and leaves with white paint to give it a nice base. Take a bowl, pour in some white paint and with a brush, color the leaves and interior of the bowl.  Also, cover the internal and external base of the bowl with white and keep it aside for a newspaper to get dry.

Step 5: Boost your creativity while painting the leaves

Now we need to color the leaves green. Take 2 bowls and pour yellow and green colors in it. Start by applying yellow color on the leaves. Once the yellow color is applied, cover the leaves with light green shade. This will give a bright shading effect to the leaves. Here is where you can use your painting skills very effectively. Take dark and light green paints and beautifully trace the stems of the leaves. Highlight some areas using dark green shade while use light green to show the faded effect.

Let’s start while preparing the base. Take the printed paper and turn it around. On the back of the paper, mark some points. Start by making 3 cm, 9cm and ten ends with again 3cm marking with the help of a ruler. Turn the paper horizontal and draw straight lines from the markings to the other side. This way, you will get the 3cm, 9cm and 3cm horizontal lines on the page. Now it’s time to make vertical markings on the paper. Take the measurements of 3cm, 9cm, 3cm, 9cm and 3cm on the paper.

Do not cut the markings just run the cutter softly on it. As shown in the video, make multiple such marks. By folding the paper, you can make a box. Thus, take glue and apply it in the inner corners of the box and stick them.

Step 4: Prepare the base of accordion

Create a box-shaped craft while sticking all the ends. Now it’s time to make the accordion. For this, we will use a different colour paper. Take a pink colour paper and with the help of ruler and pencil mark some points. Mark the width of 8cm on the paper and draw horizontal lines. With the help of a cutter, divide this paper into 2 long strips of 8cm.

Step 5: Make the thin strips for side of the accordion

Once you get 2 strips, bend the strips from the middle and more 2 times. This will get you 4 equal square boxes and 3 bends on the strip. Again fold the strip and you will get more folds. Continue this until you get thin strips and number of folds on the paper. Fold these strips inside out and continue until the end. Perform the same with another 8cm strip. This way you will get 2 accordions ready.

Step 6: Make the centre of the accordion

Take another strip and mark 6.5cm measurements on a strip. Make 4 different segments with no gap in the middle while a gap 0.5cm between the last 2 segments. Cut such 2 strips and fold the strips form the segment gaps. Using glue, stick both the strips together. Refer the video to get perfect measurements and bends.

Step 7: Combine the sides and centre of the accordion

Now you have made 2 accordions. One with broad bends while one with thin strips. You now need to merge these two accordions to create a magical feel. Stick the thin accordion to the broad accordion in a horizontal fashion. Skipping 2-3 thin stripes, again apply glue and stick the layer of a broad accordion. Continue this until you reach the end of these 2 accordions. One side of the broad accordion is framed with thin stripes, now we need to do it for another side.
