How to Recycle an Old Picture Frame

Gather supplies.

I'm using shells, I collected while on vacation. If you don't have any, this project would be a good excuse to go on one! :) really though you can use any nacks like buttons or beads.

Remove back of frame and glass.

I use acrylic paint because its thick and covers better. For this project I wanted it thin so I used water.

Cover frame to your preference.

Add glue to edges of shell. The tacky glue takes a bit to dry but holds well.

Start adding shells. Try to piece them together like a puzzle. Making sure to cover the frame underneath.

I start them in different areas.

Keep adding until completely covered. Start with large shells first than add smaller ones!
