DIY Grandparents’ Picture Frames

Like six months ago, I posted about a picture frame that I had made for Zachary before his brother was born. During that same time period, I also made picture frames for the baby’s grandparents and aunts.

I went to Michaels and bought their $1 frames, paint, letter decals, and heart stickers. I wanted to get a similar gray color to the theme of Alex’s room, so that’s what I went with. I also made frames for the aunts (see below). Each frame got a coat (or two) of Mod Podge to protect them from damage. You have to use Mod Podge. They’ll look gnarly while it’s drying, but it’s so worth it in the end for the overall quality and long-term use.

Here they are:

I also made frames for all four of his aunts. I know, I am super dorky. I just love my kids, I love my family, and I love arts & crafts. It seemed like a win/win, even if it’s super dorky.

I know, super dorky. I love them, though. I should have made one for myself!!

Here’s the paint I used. I mixed both together for the aunts’ frames. The grandparents’ frames are just the gray color.
