Father’s Day Crafts: Cereal Box Photo Frames


Cereal Box Photo Frames

Father’s Day is around the corner and it’s often hard to find the right gift for dad. This year me and my daughter have made cereal box photo frames for her dad.

They are really easy to make and look great.

Here is what you need if you want to make one:

What You Need

Optional items: ribbon, string, paint, buttons, glitter.

Cut the back and front off the cereal box.

Place your photo on the cardboard where you want it to go and then draw round it.

Position Photo

You may want to trim the sides so that it’s even all the way around the photo.

Decorate! We used shiny tape on one of them and decoupaged the other.

Gold Tape

We cut the tissue paper in to smaller pieces and glued them on. Once it was dry we added some silver stars.

Blue Frame

If you want them to hang then you can tape some ribbon/string to the back.

There are so many things you can decorate the frames with. You could paint them and then add glitter or buttons or even shells.

Once you made one you will want to make one for your whole family!

If you do make one please share it with us on twitter or Facebook.

Happy crafting.
