Picture Frame Luminaries

This is a beautiful way to Display your treasured memories and would make a lovely centre piece at a wedding or celebration.

I picked up my frames for 50p each and I had vellum and black card in my stash so this has been an inexpensive project and would make a lovely mothers day or birthday gift.

I”m so excited to share this fab project with you and you are going to love the results.

You will need:

  • 4 Photo Frames In A Size Of Your Choosing
  • Glue gun - Crafter’s Companion Hot Glue Gun Collection
  • Rare Earth A4 Vellum
  • Rare Earth A4 Black Card
  • Rare Earth Large Nested Rectangle Dies
  • Treasured Photos
  • Square Mirror Tile
  • LED/battery Tea Light Candles

Time to Make: 1-2 Hours

Skill Level: Beginner

Instructions:

  1. Appliqued Wall HangingPrint your pictures onto vellum in the size you require for your frames. I have used A4 vellum and my pitchers are 6” x 4”, I was able to print 2 pictures on 1 page. I have used a normal home printer, do remember to leave your picture to dry after printing as the ink will need longer to set and you don’t want to smudge it.

    After the pictures have dried, cut them down to size.
  2. Appliqued Wall HangingI have made window frames as my photo frames didn’t come with them. I have done this by cutting some black cardstock down to 6” x 4” and them cutting a window on the inner of the card, my window frame is approximately 1cm all the way round. You can either cut out your middle with a rectangle die or by using a craft knife and a ruler.
  3. Appliqued Wall HangingRemove the back and glass from your picture frames and leave to one side. if you wanted to paint your frames I would do that now before constructing. I am happy with mine being white.
  4. Appliqued Wall HangingWith a glue gun adhere you're frames into a rectangle. I have used clear glue but if you are using black frames I would suggest that you use a black glue stick in your glue gun.
  5. Appliqued Wall HangingNow it is time to pop your picture in the frames. I have layered mine with the Window frames first, them Vellum photo and last my Glass. I have done it this way as it keeps the vellum flat.
  6. Appliqued Wall HangingPlace on to a square mirror tile (I could only get a round one as they had sold out but a square one would work best) and use an LED/battery candle to illuminate your gorgeous photos. (if you don’t have a mirror tile you could use some Mirri Card instead, do not use a regular candle with this project.)

    Now time to enjoy your lovely personalised Picture Frame Luminary.
