DIY Gold Frame Ornament Instructions:
Start by cutting a piece of Phoomph to the size of your frame opening. I am using the Phoomph to give my fabric some rigidity when inserted into the frame. You would of course cut a thin piece of wood to go into the frame as well.
Cover both sides of the Phoomph with fabric.
Now lets work on that frame and my secret for getting that gilded look. The secret is in the product used and the DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold Rush is perfect for this application. Literally just use your finger and rub the product onto your frame. You can see from the picture below that the product is like a paste.
I actually rubbed on two coats to get the look you see in the pictures. But you use very little product on each application. I did have a little trouble with the product balling up in the intricate frame. I just used a toothpick when the frame was complete to remove any excess product.
Now we have a pretty gilded gold frame and all in a few minutes.
Getting back to that fabric covered piece of Phoomph, stencil on the design of your choice. I used the word “JOY” on one ornament and a tree on another. Let your imagination run wild for what you would like in your gilded frame. I used DecoArt Dazzling Metallics in Rich Expresso for both designs. I liked the metallic luster to match the gold in the frame.
Once dry, glue the Phoomph pieces inside of the frames. Allow to dry before continuing.
I threaded a ribbon through both frames for hanging on the tree.
These are ready for my tree (once it is up). Grab some of these fun frames at Michaels and use them to adorn your tree this Christmas. My DIY gold frame ornament is easy enough for the kids to help make but elegant enough to give as a gift.
Now lets see what the other DecoArt bloggers have come up with for y’all today. Enjoy these fun ornaments and get crafting this week!
