We needed a mothers day craft for girl guides this week, and we had picture frames, so I thought we could add a little sparkle to them..
To add some bling to a picture frame, you need, white glue, plastic rhinestones, glitter, and of course a picture frame.
Now, I love the bling-bling sparkle of glitter as much as any girl does, but I have been teaching long enough to know what a massive mess is created by a group of kids and even the smallest amount of glitter! So, my solution to this it to make your own glitter glue. It is also a whole lot cheaper than store bought glitter glue!
Start by pouring a small amount of glue into a small container, then add some glitter and mix it with a Popsicle stick. Use the glue the same way as you use normal glue… Sooo much easier to manage! If you are doing this with a group of kids, give them each their own little container, and have them mix their own… If you can find any, film canisters work great!
