Back to School Picture Frame
Summer is on the way out and for many of us that means cooler, crisper air, cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice…. everything!
Another bonus of fall: The kids go back to school!
It’s fun to remember the start of the school year and take pictures of your kids on their first day back.
The new school year is so exciting. I remember looking forward to catching up with friends I hadn’t seen all summer, find out who my teacher would be and of course, shopping for new school clothes.
I created this fun picture frame made with wooden rulers. It’s a fun memento to display and remember the excitement of the first day back all year long.
I picked up supplies for this frame at my local Fred Meyer and purchased a bottle of Windex® Original Glass Cleaner and Windex® Vinegar Multi-Surface Cleaner. Right now when you buy 2 Windex® products you get $20 to spend at Shutterfly®. Offer valid 7/15/17 – 12/1/17.
This is a great opportunity to print out all those fun back to school pictures.
- Picture frame with mat
- Wooden rulers
- Sharp scissors or gardening snips
- Super glue
- Permanent marker
Clean the frame with Windex® Original Glass Cleaner . You should make sure the glass as well as the frame are free from dust, dirt and fingerprints before you start crafting.
Place the rulers over the sides of the frame and mark where to cut them.
Use sharp scissors or gardening snips to cut the wooden rulers to size. Gardening snips are great because they are meant to cut through wood and they easily cut through the metal strip on some rulers. You can also pull the metal edging out of the ruler if you prefer.
Once the frame is clean and dry, glue the rulers onto the frame using super glue. Set aside to dry.
Use permanent marker to write a message on the frame mat like “back to school” or your child’s name and grade.
Once everything is dry, assemble the frame with your favorite photo.
Before you display your photos, wipe down your shelf with Windex® Vinegar Multi-Surface Cleaner, a vinegar multi-surface cleaner that’s gentle on surfaces. It’s versatile enough to use through your home, and the special ammonia-free formula has no harsh vinegar smell. Just fresh, clean scent. Use as a bathroom cleaner, kitchen cleaner, tile cleaner, stainless steel cleaner, and much more.
