Oh La La ~ We love making over dollar frames! Over the years we have painted them, Mod Podged them and even thumb-tacked them. Now we are Mod Melting them with gold crowns and rhinestones.
To get the shabby look ~ paint the frame with White craft paint. Dry-brush paint the frame with a Robin’s Egg Blue paint. Using a loose bristle coarse paintbrush, paint a few highlighted spots with gold craft paint.
Make a handful of Mod Melt crowns. Paint the crowns with Gold craft paint. (We like FolkArt paint). If needed seal the Mod Melt with a coat of Mod Podge Gloss, Matte or Sparkle depending on the look you like.
Glue the Mod Melt crowns and rhinestones to the frame. Glue a funky trim around the outer edge of the frame.
