Case in point? Glitter.
Since you can never completely get rid of it, I swore we’d never have it in the house.
But there’s something about my daughter’s sweet face and her pleas that wore me down.
So, glitter has become a must-have for most of our projects.
And this frame is the biggest hit yet.
Here’s what you’ll need for this simple project:
- unfinished picture frame
- white paint (or any color of your choosing)
- glitter (we used Martha Stewart’s iridescent fine glitter)
- Mod Podge (you can make your own if you’d prefer)
And here’s what you’ll do:

image-198 4 of 8Once the paint is dry, have your child paint the frame with a thick coat of Mod Podge.
