Cardboard Petal Picture Frame
Total Time 1 to 2 hours Ages school-age

This fanciful frame gets its flair from snips of painted cardboard tubes. To achieve our free-form look, we cut two petal sizes.

What you'll need

  • Paintbrushes and acrylic paints
  • Cardboard tubes (we used 4 toilet paper tubes, one per color)
  • Scissors
  • Picture frame
  • Tacky glue
  • Paper plate

How to make it

  1. Cardboard Petal Picture Frame - Step 1

    Paint the tubes and let them dry. Flatten them, then cut them into sections. Ours are two widths: 3/8 inches and 3/4 inches.

  2. Remove the glass and any backing from the frame. Paint the frame, if desired, and let it dry.

  3. Cardboard Petal Picture Frame Step 3

    Squeeze glue onto a paper plate. Arrange the petals on the frame in a design you like. Remove them one at a time and lightly dip one edge into the glue, then press it onto the frame. Let the glue dry.
