Hello and welcome to this DIY! This project was a cute idea I had that any kid can make as long as they’re careful with a bunch of glitter. I wanted to represent the princesses in my picture frame so I used crowns and their signature colors as my guide.
|Supplies List:||Tools List:|
|Purple, Blue, Light Green, Dark Green, Silver, and Gold Sequins||Tacky Glue|
|Gold Tube Glitter||Plastic Cup|
|Iridescent Tube Glitter||Paper Plate|
|Silver Glitter||Glossy Varnish|
|Unfinished Wooden Picture Frame (no glass)||Sponge Applicator|
|Black Acrylic Paint||Scissors/ Hobby Knife|
|Gold and Silver Glitter Foam Sheets|
I started the project with a couple of glittery options like stick-on rhinestones and pearls. In the end I stuck with the glitter and sequins.
I painted the entire frame with black acrylic paint.
Next, I drew 6 crowns to represent the princesses I wanted on my frame: Cinderella, Aurora, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Tiana, and Merida (left to right, top to bottom in the picture). I folded a plain piece of paper in half, drew on one side and cut them out to get perfect symmetry.
I then traced those little crowns onto the backs of my gold and silver glitter foam sheets. Tiana, Cinderella, and Jasmine on silver; Rapunzel, Merida, and Aurora on gold.
The crowns are matched up with each princess’ color.
My first princess was Merida in dark green. I combined the dark green sequins, gold tube glitter, iridescent tube glitter, and silver glitter together.
I spread on tacky glue to a part of my frame and poured on the glitter mixture and pushed down on the glitter to make sure more of it stuck than fell off. The paper plate saved a lot of the fallout which was great! There was minimal cleanup and I got to save the mixture for other projects.
I did the same mixture of glitters but with each color of sequin. Cinderella’s silver was next, then Aurora’s gold, Tiana’s light green, Rapunzel’s purple, and Jasmine’s blue.
Each were applied the same way with some space in-between.
I later filled in those spaced with a combination of everyone’s color. It looks very messy because it was, but the frame looks great away from all of the fallout glitter!
After I let the glitter dry, I went over everything again with glossy varnish on a sponge applicator to set all the glitter in place.
Last, I glued on my crowns on their proper colors.
Put a Picture Inside and It’s Done!
Thanks for following along with this project! Layering is really important with this kind of glitter DIY and if you want to make sure your glitter sticks well, you gotta use glossy varnish. More than one layer if you really don’t want any glitter falling off.
