Craft Project – Cath Kidston Photo Frame

Christmas is my favourite time of year and with it being just around the corner, I have been trying to think of some little creative crafty gifts for Christmas.
You can have lots of fun creating unique gifts for family and friends and I have a number of projects that I’m going to share with you over the coming weeks.
So here is my first one: Cath Kidston paper mache photo frame.

You will need:
  • An old photo frame (I got mine from a charity shop for 50p)
  • Patterned tissue paper (I chose Cath Kidston paper tissues in provence rose for 85p)
  • Plain white tissue paper
  • PVA Glue
  • Paintbrush
1) Cover the photo frame with plain white tissue paper using the PVA glue and leave to dry.

2) Tear the patterned tissue paper into small strips and using the PVA glue layer the photo frame with the patterned tissue to give it a decoupage effect.

3) Leave this layer to dry and the repeat step 2 a couple of times.

This is the final result:

It has a vintage effect because the paper has dried slightly crinkled which I think looks great!
I will be giving this photo frame as a gift to a friend who I went on holiday with year with a photo of us together.
What do you think of this craft idea?
