You can dress up an old or new unfinished picture frame with dried flowers. Use home-grown dried straw flowers, miniature rosebuds or purchased blossoms. The frame can display little girl, engagement or wedding photos. It can be hung on a wall or set up on a table surface or shelf. The colorful frame will make a nice gift or personal home decoration. You can easily learn how to decorate a picture frame with dried flowers. This is a craft that can be done with children that have shown patience when crafting.
Prepare dried flowers by removing floral wire or stems with wire cutters or heavy shears. Lay the flower heads on the worktable.
Place frame on to a freezer paper lined work surface. The paper protects the work table from the thick glue. Pour about 1/4 cup of white tacky glue on to a foil pie plate or plastic container cover. You can choose to use a hot glue gun if you are crafting this project alone. Tacky glue is safer when working with children.
Dip a sponge brush into the tacky glue and apply a thick layer straight down the length of the bottom of the frame. Fill the bottom area in with the glue.
Place dried flower blossoms in a uniform line down the length of the glued surface. Continue placing flowers in an even row until the area is filled in.
Repeat by continuing in horizontal lines with glue and flowers until the entire frame is covered. Finish by applying flowers to the sides of the frame.
