Materials

  • Photo Frame (I used 5×7 frame from Dollar Tree)
  • Glass Candle Holder (from Dollar Tree)
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • Grey Acrylic Paint
  • Painted Wood Shapes – I used Dinosaurs (Found mine at Hobby Lobby)

Tools

  • Paint Brush
  • E6000 Glue

Instructions

  1. Starting with the frame - Start with the frame and remove the glass, back and paper. Place it onto a working surface.
  2. Paint the frame. - Using the white paint, paint the entire frame white and set it aside to dry. You may need to do two coats depending on the color of the original frame.
  3. Add stone detail. - Once the frame is dry, we’re going to use grey paint to give it a fake stone look.
  4. Dry brush the detail - With a dry paint brush and a small amount of paint, dry brush some gray onto the dry white frame. You don’t want a lot of paint on the brush, just enough to add a bit of color to the frame.
  5. Paint the candle holder - You’ll also need to paint the glass candle holder. The candle holder is going to be the base of the menu holder.
  6. Paint it white - Paint the candle holder white.
  7. Add the stone detail. - Just like with the frame, let the white paint dry and then use a paint brush to dry brush some grey onto the candle stick holder to create a stone look.
  8. Let them dry - Let them dry completely.
  9. Attach them together. - Once they’re dry, use a very strong adhesive like E6000 craft glue to glue the frame onto the top of the candle holder. Let it sit, undisturbed, for about 12 hours to dry.
  10. Add your theme detail. - Now it’s time to add your detail for your theme. I made these for my son’s dinosaur birthday so we went with dinosaurs.
  11. Glue them on. - Use craft glue or hot glue to attach the wooden shapes.
  12. Another dino - This is the blue wooden dinosaur shape I used for the 2nd one I did.
  13. Use any theme
  14. Print your menu - Then just print your menu using Word or something like Canva and put it into the frame.
