My twig frame is pretty small, I wanted to make it and display Ellie’s photos by my bed. Feel free to adjust the measurements below as needed. Wanna learn how to make a photo frame with twigs? Here are the easy steps!
- 10 twigs of 15 cm = 6″ (adjust to your photo size; need to be longer than your photo)
- 10 twigs of 20 cm = 8″ (adjust to photo size; make sure they’re longer than your photo)
- cutting tool (to cut the twigs to desired length)
- transparent baking paper (to attach the photo to)
- 1 reed tip to decorate (optional)
- glitter paint spray (optional)
- Separate the twigs into two piles based on size. Trim the ends to make them all of the desired length.
- Lay out your frame. Place 5 longer twigs on each size with the shorter ones on top and bottom.
- Take the twine and tie one end to a twig. Wrap around a few times. Switch directions and start wrapping the twine around the other corner so it creates a cross. Repeat on all corners. (you’ll need patience on the first 2 corners as the twigs move around and will want to shift)
- Leave the frame as is or spray some glitter paint as I did. Make sure the paint is completely dry before moving on to the next step.
- Cut some baking paper, slightly larger than your photo.
- Glue the back of the photo to the baking paper. Leave to completely dry.
- Glue the baking paper to the back of the frame, only on the sides, with the photo facing out.
- Decorate an empty, lonely shelf with your beautiful art!
