Textured Picture Frame Craft – Elegant but Kid-Friendly Craft

Unpainted naturally textured picture frames. These were painted white for a wedding but it's a cool kid's craft idea also!

I love that these frames use natural seeds and materials to create the stunning textures. Once they were spray painted into the one tone they really look stunning – simple and elegant. I could see older children creating these for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gifts, for grandparents, or to decorate their own rooms. The seeds and acorns could be a choking hazard for little bitties so use supervision of course. In the example tutorial they created a gorgeous wedding display!

Homemade Succulent Garden from Repurposed Plumbing Supplies

Indoor succulent garden containers from repurposed containers

This is a fun indoor garden project that reuses galvanized plumbing pipes as the containers for the succulent garden. I adore these indoor little garden collections – succulents don’t need very much water and will tolerate forgetful gardeners like me. Brilliant.

See how they made it at Finding Home.
