Choose Your Photo

I picked a family photo that I used for our Christmas card and chose my paint color around the pictures and chose what paint matched best!!

Building the Frame

Step 1: I Started by tracing my wooden leaf onto the back of the tile paper.

Step 2: Cut out Leaf

Step 3: Paint with 1 or 2 coats on the front of the tile leaf. Let fully dry.

Step 4: Paint one light coat of brown antiquing paint

Step 5: While wet wipe off the surface with a damp cloth. Do not wipe around the edges of the design as this will give your tile the antique look. (see video)

Step 6: Trace out a square, rectangle or circle that is going to fit your picture but small enough to fit the center of the leaf.

Where to place your frame

You can hang your frame from twine on a interior door or wall….

or set it as part of the centerpiece of your Thanksgiving table. This is where my frame has currently found its home.

I also love the look of hanging it from above. Check it out here:
