Wonder Craft: Craft stick photo frame

November 03, 2018


Photo frames always look wonderful whether you present them as gift or hang them in your room. The good thing about most photo frames is that they can easily be made at home with a little variation in making them, like using cardboard or craft stick.

Today’s craft is also a photo frame which we will be making with craft sticks. It is simple, but looks amazing.

Let’s start.

Things you need

  1. Yarn thread (any two colours, you can use more than two)

  2. Craft glue/white glue

  3. Four craft sticks

  4. One craft pin

  5. Six-inches of any string (to hang the frame)

  6. Scissors

  1. Place the craft sticks one over the other in a square-shape and stick them with glue as shown in the pictures 2 and 3.

  2. Tie a knot of any yarn on the inside of the stick and put glue so that it remains secure and doesn’t come off, pictures 4 and 5.

  3. Start rolling the yarn on the stick for about one-inch and tie a knot; leave one centimetre of space then start rolling the same yarn again for an inch, pictures 6 and 7.

  4. Fill the gap with another colour of yarn, picture 8.

  5. Do the same on all four sticks. You can add as many colours of yarn as you want. Picture 9.

  6. Stick the string on the back (to hang the frame), picture 10.

  7. Use the craft pin by pasting it in the middle of the frame; (if you don’t have the craft pin just put the ordinary safety pin in the middle of the stick. Pictures 11 and 12.

The craft stick frame is ready you can decorate it by pasting beads and flowers on the yarn.
