Rhinestone embellished picture frame
Finding the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day can be challenging especially when you want to give something personal. Why not decorate a picture frame to not only make it personalized, but also use it to capture your favorite moment of the two of you together.
For this project I used:
1 picture frame
9ss Light Siam Rhinestones
10ss Crystal Rhinestones
Wax tipped tool
I find it difficult to glue rhinestones symmetrically when doing it freehand. An easier way is to lay a piece of wax paper over graph paper and lay the rhinestones out on the wax paper. The graph paper helps to keep your design symmetrical. Once your design is complete, carefully tape the rhinestones with scotch tape and peel off the wax paper.
Place a drop of glue on the back of each of the rhinestone slightly smaller than the rhinestone and tape to the picture frame. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, remove the tape. I wanted to add a little something more to the design and this I did freehand, although the same method of taping can be used.
Now you have the perfect way to remember your favorite moment with your loved one for years to come.
