Quite often the photos we take just end up stored on our phones and computers, never to see the light of day. Make sure you remember the truly special moments in your life with this super-quick make. The project can be recreated using any size of frame, perfect if you’ve got a spare one lying around the house – after a quick lick of paint it’ll be looking as good as new in no time!

How to Make a Polaroid Photo Frame

You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Remove the glass and backing board from the frame and use a pair of pliers to remove the metal tabs that hold the backboard in place. Lay the frame on the floor or any flat surface will do, and position the polaroids inside the frame, working out how many you would like on each twine strand.

2. Depending on the number of frames you’ll be using, select the same number of different card and paper stocks. Remove the adhesive backing from the polaroid frame and apply to the back of the card or paper. Use a craft knife and metal ruler to trim the paper to size, taking extra care when cutting out the central apertures.

3. Print out your photo, resizing if necessary, and apply to the back of the polaroid with a little double-sided tape, making sure that none of the picture is peeking out of the edges. Decorate each of the snaps using a selection of different embellishments, I used a selection of stickers.

4. Run lengths of twine from the top to the bottom of the wooden frame using a hot glue gun to secure them in place. Once the glue has set, attach each of the polaroids with a wooden peg.
