Spring photo frame

Today I will talk about how to make a beautiful photo frame with your own hands. For its manufacture does not require any special tools and devices, all components are improvised. 1. So, we need an ordinary photo frame. I chose the most inexpensive wooden photo frame in A4 format. In addition, I have prepared a few dry thin twigs of birch. I cooked them back in the fall, but even now, in the spring, it is quite possible to pick such branches from any birch tree. Every woman has beads that she no longer wears. I also have these, and I decided to put them into action. I took several red beads - they will symbolize the berry of a mountain ash in my composition. I will also need paints: watercolor or gouache, green.

2. At first I prepare a photo frame for work. Take out and remove the glass from it and the back wall.

3.Then I proceed to the processing of birch twigs. They should be cut with a knife into small pieces.

4. Once all the twigs are cut, put glue on the edges of the photo frame. Glue can be used different, PVA, super moment or building glue. I used building glue, it is thick, dense, but it dries a long time - about two hours.

5. Next, I lay out the twigs in the photo frame, as shown in the figure. I do not recommend spreading twigs too close to each other. Better to have a small distance between them. But it is desirable that all the branches "looked" in one direction.

6. As a result, we should get the same photo frame, as in the figure - all in birch twigs.

7. Next, we will lay out on our composition berries of rowan, that is, beads of red color. You need to glue them using the same glue as birch twigs.Lay out the beads in any order, as you like.

8. Now the turn came to the green paint. Using a brush, we apply green paint on birch twigs. Not everywhere, but selectively, as shown in the figure.

9. Then I insert the glass and the back wall back into the photo frame.

10. My final touch is a golden twig from a Christmas tree toy. I pasted it on the bottom corner of the photo frame. Instead of such a twig, you can use any artificial flower, or just a bow, or a beautiful satin ribbon of green or golden color.

Our beautiful photo frame is ready! I called it spring, because there are berries of mountain ash on it, preserved from autumn, bare branches, which have not yet “woken up” after winter, and bright green branches, which are already poured by force. This photo frame can be hung on the wall or put on a chest of drawers, after inserting a beautiful photo into it.
