Hi there! It's Annie, and today I'm back with a tutorial to make this darling grandkids frame using one of the new Desktop DIY Wood Word Frames from the Clear Scraps shop. With all of the gorgeous detail in these frames, you don't need to add a ton of embellisments to make a beautiful gift for the grandmas and grandpas in your life.
I started by painting all of the pieces in the kit (except the frame cutout) a nice, muted green using acrylic paint. The heart frame was painted with white acrylic paint.
Once dry, I roughly applied gold gilding wax to the edges of the wooden word cutout with a domed foam blending tool for an aged, yet pretty and sophisticated look.
Similarly, I applied a golden green metallic wax all over the heart frame piece for a antiqued, yet iridescent finish.
To finish the base of the piece, I traced the two shapes onto pretty springtime scrapbook paper and trimmed them out with scissors and a craft knife. Using collage medium, I adhered the scrapbook paper to the base pieces and then sealed them nicely with a thin coating of medium on top of the paper as well.
After assembling the piece, I added a few store-bought white and pink paper flowers to the base with hot glue.
Add a funny photo or nice quote behind the frame and adhere it to the main piece using strong liquid or hot glue. Embellish the frame with a few more paper flowers.
