Memory Lane Picture Frames

Memory Lane Picture Frames

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

Is your mother's or grandmother's jewelry box a treasure trove of elegant baubles? Ask her to donate some trinkets to your cause, then use them to decorate a picture frame for a sentimental sister or cousin.


  • Picture frame (flat wood or plastic works best)
  • Costume jewelry
  • Foam brush
  • Strong craft glue (we like Crafter's Pick The Ultimate Glue)


  1. To prepare the jewelry, remove earring and brooch backs and unstring any beads. Remove the glass from the picture frame.
  2. Working in sections, use the foam brush to apply a thick layer of glue, then press on the beads and jewelry. When the frame is completely dry, reinsert the glass.
