This craft is a fun independent project for older kids and tweens and your younger kids will have fun making one with a little bit of help.
Let’s grab some craft supplies and get started.
How to make a pompom picture frame
First, you’ll need to create your frame from your craft sticks.
Place down two parallel craft sticks and overlap with two more craft sticks to create a square. Glue your four craft sticks together.
While you’re waiting for your glue to dry, select the pompoms that you want to use for your frame.
Line your pompoms up along the crafts sticks and glue each one down. Press your pompom down to make sure it attaches to the craft sticks. Try to cover all the craft sticks so that you don’t have any gaps.
You can put your pompoms in a specific pattern or just add them in a random order. You could do a picture frame in all one color, two alternating colors, or whatever you like best.
Get creative! This project is entirely yours!
After all your glue is dry, choose the photo you want to display. You may need to cut off the edges off the photo to fit your frame. (We did!)
Flip the picture frame over and use your tape to attach the picture to your frame.
Ta-da! It’s done!
If you would like, you can add a couple of magnets to the back to create a fun magnetic picture frame.
