DIY: painted picture frames

1. Gather your supplies: paper, tape, pencil & sharpie paint markers. Cut the paper into sizes and shapes that you want your frames to be. Tape them to the wall leaving enough space between them, the final design will be 4-5 inches bigger than your original paper.

2. Draw your frames first in pencil, this will give you an outline to trace with the paint markers, but will easily wash off when you're finished.

3. Pick a color and paint away. Don't worry about straight lines, those little inconsistencies make it look special and unique. The wavier the better. The paint will dry within a few minutes and then you can wash off those pencil marks. I made the mistake of using a colored pencil (not so easy to wash off) so I would recommend a regular graphite pencil.

4. Let your little one show off their artwork!
