How To Make A Decopatch Home Décor Frame

This project guides you to make a lovely new addition to your home deco.

You will need:

  • Deco Patch Square Frame
  • Floral Themed Quality Papers 6”x6”
  • Decopatch Sparkling Glue
  • Craft Stickers Adhesive backed sparkly gems
  • Scissors, craft glue and double sided sticky tape, paint brush

Time to Make: Approx 1-2 hours

Skill Level: Beginner

Step-by-step:

  1. Select 4-5 sheets of pattern paper from your chosen paper pad and tear into small pieces approx. 2.5cm x 2.5cm roughly. Pour some of the sparkly Decopatch glue into a bowl ready. Make sure you have a covered surface as the next step is quite messy.

  1. Take the small pieces of patterned paper and start to fix them to the frame, it’s best to work in small areas so I started in the corner and cover in glue first and then placed a piece on and then covered with glue, the paper is thicker than normally used for Decopatch but with plenty of glue will stick fine. You can overlap and use various shapes and patterns of paper, this all helps add to the effect.

  1. Repeat this technique around the frame remembering to cover the edges and lips of inside the frame. The technique of Decopatching doesn’t have to be neat as the effect works well if layered and overlapped, you don’t need to cover the remove-able backing piece unless you would like too. The frame may look murky at first as the glue dries (approx. 4-6 hours- over night to be sure it is fully dry) it will have a lovely glossy sparkly smooth effect on the frame.

  1. Now we can start to reconstruct the frame, I have used another of the floral paper sheets and cut it to fit inside the frame (12.5cm x 12.5cm Approx.) and then popped the back on to the frame and turned picture holders to hold in place. You could stick the backing panel down but I have decided not too as then you can change the inside picture on another occasion.

  1. Next it is time to layer and decorate the inside (the picture) I took another piece of pattern paper from the floral themed pad and cut to: 9cm x 9cm and choose 2 of the sheets from the pad with butterflies and fussy cut them out. I then fixed everything together on the picture panel. I curled the wings on the larger butterfly for added effect and only glued the smaller butterflies using the centre of each butterfly.

  1. Final stage to making this lovely frame was the finishing touches, I decided to use the Adhesive backed gems to decorate the rim around the inside of the frame. I placed the strips of gems along each and trimmed them to fit and continued all the way around the frame.

  1. A stunningly vintage feel frame all finished and you can change the images inside whenever you feel like it. They would make a great gift or home décor item for your own home.
