Yesterday, in our big joint post showcasing all the festive goodies we made with the Krylon paint, I alluded to a more detailed tutorial for the striped picture frame. This is really easy & quick.
How to make your own:
1. Apply a coat of acrylic paint (I chose white) to the wooden frame. Let dry.
|I purposely varied the width between stripes.|
2. Next use rows of tape to create stripes. I used floral tape because it was thin and I had some on-hand. It'll stick to the painted wood, just give it a good rub to adhere it. You could also use masking tape, painters tape, or electrical tape for that matter (whatever gives you stripes in the size you like).
|Masking tape on the two sides to hold down the floral tape during spray painting.|
3. I used masking tape to secure the 'ends' of the floral tape (this is on the side of the frame).
|Spray painting center.|
4. Spray paint away. I can recommend the Krylon product without hesitation. I used Banner Red.
5. Let dry and then reveal stripes!
If you need to touch up from any overspray, go ahead.
Optional: Take a long piece of coordinating ribbon and hot glue it around the sides. This will hide the fact that we didn't paint all the sides and give the frame a finished look. If you look closely at the photo below, you may see the red ribbon on my finished frame.
Add a picture to the frame & decorate away!
