I’ve come across some super cute jeweled frames, especially from Z Gallerie. Look how pretty these are!
Too bad they range from $18-40. Wah. wah. wah. That’s more than what I’m willing to spend.
This only means one thing! It’s time for a DIY! For under $5, you can make jeweled frames.
Materials: frame, paint, E-6000 craft glue, and mosaic tiles
Simply paint the frame and let it dry overnight. Then align the tiles, and glue each piece to the frame.

Materials: frame, E-6000 craft glue, beads, and spray paint.
For this frame, I purchased silver beads. I first aligned the beads and glued them onto the frame. Next I removed the glass, picture, and picture mat, then sprayed paint the entire frame with the beads white. Let it dry overnight.

Here’s a different design for our bookshelf.
I like the juxtaposition of the tiles and beads. Each one has a personality, and every piece doesn’t match in size, shape, and alignment. Put your favorite photo of you and your friend and it will make for a great Christmas gift!
Is this a project you can do? What would you use these frames for? I actually used these frames to display my engagement pictures at my wedding.
