Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and I wanted the boys to do a craft that would involve my younger son, 3 years old, to be able to participate in too. It had to be something they could make for their Grandmothers and aunt, as well. What better than a DIY photo frame with a special picture of each one in it as a keepsake!
I had recently discovered Amazon India, and found these variety packs of washi tapes on sale. I ordered them to get them delivered to my parents who were visiting Mumbai at the moment. Naturally, I was itching to use them as soon as I received them. This special Mother’s Day craft just HAD to be done with these washi tapes.
The DIY photo frame is really simple to do, and my 3 year old was able to work with the tapes too. It takes less than 20 minutes, provided you have a printed photo already.
4 x Popsicle craft sticks (to make one frame)
Washi Tapes (depending on how many designs you choose to use)
Printed photograph (recommended size 4in x 6in)
Magnet Tacks (in Dubai, we got ours from Daiso Japan)
Step 1: Cover one side of each stick with a washi tape. You can choose to do all 4 sticks in same design, 2 sticks in a particular design and other 2 in a different one, or all 4 sticks in different designs.
Step 2: Glue the ends of 4 sticks to each other to make a square.
Step 3: Cut the photograph to the right size to fit in the square. Stick it on the back of the frame.
Step 4: Stick Magnetic Tacks at the back of the frame.
Your simple Mother’s Day DIY photo frame keepsake is ready to go up with your other magnets!
