This month, I participated in a craft swap with other bloggers from the Wayfair Homemakers program. For my craft, I created a DIY sand frame. I had so much fun making it, that I wanted to share the details here with my readers. It’s super easy and is really inexpensive to make.
- Small paintbrush
- Wood glue
- Wooden frame (I used a Driftwood Linear Picture Frame from Wayfair)
Remove the frame’s backing and glass. Squeeze the glue from its container, and apply to the frame. Use a paintbrush to spread a thin layer of glue. Make sure to cover every section of wood. If you miss a spot, the sand won’t stick.
Sprinkle the sand on top of the frame. Press the sand down to ensure you cover the entire surface. Add more if needed.
Let sit overnight. In the morning, turn the frame upside down and shake off any excess. Rub a ruler or your finger around the edges of the frame to create a clean line of sand.
Add a photo to the frame and place the backing and glass back into the frame.
As part of the swap, another blogger created a craft for me! I was so excited when I received the package in the mail. Jeanie from Create and Babble made these gorgeous monogrammed towels. How cute are they?! They are perfect for the holidays. I can’t wait to showcase them in our guest bathroom.
The craft swap is why I love blogging. I love collaborating and interacting with other bloggers who have similar passions and hobbies. Putting together the craft was so much fun, and I hope to participate in another type of swap sometime in the near future.
