Materials

Tip: Kids can use crayons to add more color to white frames, but you can also buy paper plates in bright colors.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Make the frame

    Cut the center out of a 6-inch paper plate. Tape a photograph (or drawing) to the back of the plate cut-out. Glue another 6-inch paper plate to the back of the first paper plate, with the picture in between.

  2. Step 2: Decorate the frame

    Print and cut out the decorative borders and stickers. Glue the two pieces of the decorative border along the front rim of the paper plate. Glue the character stickers to the frame.

  3. Step 3: Hang it up!

    Punch a hole at the top of the finished frame. Cut a piece of ribbon for hanging the frame. Thread it through the hole, and knot the ends. Hang it up!

Tip: For a sturdier frame, layer two together.
