It’s time for another 15 minute craft tutorial! Yay for quick crafts you can whip out while your kid is insanely engaged in that new box of Play-doh. You can worry about finding the Play-Doh smooshed in the carpet later because for 15 minutes, you’ll be in glittery rainbow heaven!
Let’s get started…
Glittered Rainbow Frame
- 2 cheap frames (you’ll be using the glass from both of them but only the frame of one)
- Glitter Tape
- Craft Knife
- Spray Paint (optional)

I like to craft and I like to thrift so when I can craft with thrift store finds…heaven! Add the fact that you can complete this project in under 15 minutes…heaven with a side of french fries!
I found this frame more than a year ago and fell in love with it. My husband? Not so much. I’m sure he thought it was overpriced at $2.99. I’ve got to admit, it was hard looking past the ridiculous (and awesome in it’s own way!) brushed velvet peacock painting and just see a lovely frame. The only reason I didn’t pop some art in it and throw it up on my walls right away was because it has unusual dimensions (very long and skinny). So, I packed it away a closet and pretty much forgot about it. Boo.
I decided to do some wall art reshuffling last week and had an empty space next to my TV that for some reason, made me think of this old frame. Since I still didn’t have any artwork that would fit it and had maybe 15 minutes before Max woke up, I decided to make it a rotating frame. Because of the magnetic clip, I’m able to switch prints or pictures out until my fickle heart is content!
Rotating Vintage Frame
- strip of metal
- tape or glue
- contact paper
- magnetic clip
1. Gather your supplies. As you can see, I wasn’t sure which clips I was going to use. Feel free to play around with any of these clip options. With a little tweaking, all of them would work.
2. In order to make the picture clip moveable, I taped down a strip of metal toward the top of the frame board. That way I’d be able to center both large and small prints. (Find a thinner piece of metal if you can. You can kinda see mine through the contact paper.) Cover the frame board and metal strip with your contact paper and reassemble frame. I went with a faux wood print but you can use any color you want.
3. Attach clip to your desired artwork and center in place on the frame. Done and done. If I hurry, I might just be able to sneak in a cup of coffee before the little one wakes up!
