I love the look of those picture frames with gemstones on them, don't you? However, clear gem stones can be pretty expensive, so I thought I'd try it out with these glass gems I found at Walmart for only $3 a bag.
I really like them! :o)
All you need are: picture frames(mine came from the $ Tree), spray paint, small glass gems, and hot glue.
Spray your frames and let dry...
Glue on your beads. I did two rows all the way around the frame on the gold and silver, and 1 row on the black. (I tried using the all purpose glue in the corner of this pic, but it ate away the paint a little bit. Hot glue works much better!)
Add some embellishments if you'd like! Bows, brooches, buttons, flowers...whatever you have lying around!
And fill them with photos!
Pretty and easy! :o)
