FROZEN Upcycled Photo Frame Tutorial - Craft

I'm still in love with "Let It Go" and I may have seen Frozen so many times that mommy has been thinking of hiding my movie. I am so not going to let that happen. Today I want to share with you another tutorial. This one you will have a lot of fun trying.

FROZEN Upcycled  Photo Frame Tutorial


Photo frame (this one was purchased at a yard sale)
Krylon Metallic Silver Spray Paint
Martha Stewart  Fine Glitter, Crystal
Self adhesive rhinestones


1. Remove the glass and backing from the frame.

2. Cover your outdoor work surface with cardboard or newspaper.

3. Paint the sides of the frame.

4. Lay the frame flat on the work surface. Using slow back and forth motions spray the front of the frame with paint.

5. While paint is still wet cover the front surface with the Martha Stewart fine glitter.

6. Let frame dry completely.

7. Add the self-adhesive rhinestones around the front of the frame.

8. Replace glass and insert a photo of your choice. Put backing on frame.

Check out the before and after shot! I hope you enjoyed our tutorial and let me know if you decide to make one of your own. 


  1. Totally obsessed with Frozen here, too and seriously love that frame. You did a great job and thanks for sharing :)

  2. This would be a great birthday gift for Scarlet - maybe I could use a photo of HER in her Elsa dress. Perfection, right?

  3. Great yard sale find! The tutorial looks very easy to follow since it goes step-by-step---that's awesome. I may be the only person on earth who doesn't like "Frozen," haha... but the frame still turned out amazing!!!

  4. Oh, I love this frame! I've been on a spray paint kick lately, but I haven't tried adding glitter to anything . . . yet. ;-) Thanks for a great tutorial!

  5. What a cute idea! My 8-year-old would love this project. I love how the white makes the frame pop!

  6. What a fun and beautiful project! Art projects like this mean so much more, especially as a gift. Lovely. :)

  7. I love this! You're very crafty, wish I could do it as well :)

  8. Love this idea! I know I have some frames around here that could use a little updating. Thanks for sharing. :) PINNED!
