Paper Quill Picture Frame
Turn a cereal box into a DIY picture frame with paint and paper quill embellishments. It’s an upcycled craft idea that makes a fun DIY cardboard picture frame!
1 With scissors, cut out a picture frame shape on the cereal box to your desired size.
2 Mix blue and white paint in the cup with a craft stick, then paint the plain side of the frame. Let dry 1-2 hours. Paint a second coat. Dry again 1-2 hours.
3 While paint dries, cut different colors of construction paper into strips and cut 1 folded newspaper sheet into strips.
4 Snip a small slit into the paper straw.
5 Slide a construction paper strip into the slit, then wrap it around the straw and adhere the other end with glue. Repeat with a newspaper strip and as many construction paper strips as desired.
6 Repeat Step 5 to make enough paper quills to cover all or part of the frame.
7 Glue the paper quills to the painted frame, let dry, and display!
