Materials

  • 4 -5x7 picture frames
  • 1 can of spray paint

Tools

  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Instructions

  1. Remove the packaging from the frame.
  2. Turn the frame over, pull up tabs from the rear of the frame and separate rear, glass, and frame.
  3. Take your frames outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.
  4. Paint the front, back, sides, and inner edges of the frame. Allow 30 minutes in between each before moving on to the next area before painting another. Allow at least 60 minutes before moving on to the next step.
  5. Remove the metal tabs from the back of the frame. We did this after we painted the frame, but you can also do so before. Either way works
  6. Continue until you have removed the tabs from all the frames.
  7. Using your glue gun, secure the glass back into the frame. Hold the glass into place for 10 seconds before moving on to the next frame. Be sure to use more glue than just s dot in each corner.
  8. This will NOT be enough to hold the glass into place.
  9. Working quickly, using your glue gun, run a line of glue down the outside corner of two frames.
  10. On a flat surface and at a 90-degree, perpendicular angle, join the two frames together at the corner (see photo), holding in place for 15-20 seconds until very secure. When you are satisfied the two frames are secure, rotate so you can repeat this step for the next frame until all four frames are connected.
  11. To be sure the frames were very steady, we also ran a line of glue down the inside seam of each corner as well. diy candle holder
