Small Kids Moment: Glitter Picture Frame

Every parent is familiar with the way children have an amazing ability to wear us down.

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:

And here’s what you’ll do:

    Prep your frame with a coat of white paint.

    Once the paint is dry, have your child paint the frame with a thick coat of Mod Podge.

    Before the Mod Podge dries, have your child sprinkle with glitter, covering the entire frame.

    Allow frame to dry completely. We left ours to dry overnight.

    Shake frame thoroughly (my daughter loved this part) until all loose glitter falls off. Then, spray lightly with a clear spray finish (we actually used hairspray).
