Decorative Glitter Frames

I made these cute Christmas frames! It was a fun, quick and inexpensive project that helped make the room look more festive. Plus, the glitter won't fall off!

Here's how to make them.

What you'll need:
1. Wooden frames from your local craft store. (About $1 or less each at Michaels.)
2. Sponge brushes
3. Modge Podge
4. Glitter in your favorite color
5. Paint to match the glitter

Step 1: Paint the front, back and sides of the wooden frame.

Step 2: Once your painted frame has dried completely, brush on a thick coat of Modge Podge. Then cover the Modge Podged frame with glitter. Tip: Put your frame on wax paper before pouring on the glitter. This will allow you to save the leftover glitter. 
Step 3: Shake off all the leftover glitter and let set for 2-3 minutes to make sure the Modge Podge dries completely. 

Step 4: Spray the entire frame with a UV- Resistant Clear Acrylic Spray Paint. After you spray the frame, let it dry for 10 minutes. Then repeat Step 4. 

Once, the frame is completely dry you are done! Here is the finished product. 

I also created a green version of these frames using a finer glitter.
