1. Prime the frame with white acrylic paint and leave to dry. Then paint everything except the inner frame with magenta. Leave to dry.
2. Select the letters etc from the letter and number beads you need to spell “HOLIDAY # SUMMER ♥︎ 2017”. Thread the cube beads onto the cotton cord in order and glue the beginning of the cord to the back of the frame. Wrap the cord around the top half of the frame making sure it’s not too loose. Position the cubes where you want. Always fix the cord on the back with a spot of glue to keep the tension and hold the cord in position, preventing it from getting damaged later.
Tip: Instead of “HOLIDAY # SUMMER ♥︎ 2017” you could also add the holiday destination e.g. “HAMBURG”. In addition, this framework allows for the possibility of recording various events e.g. a wedding anniversary, a special birthday, the last family celebration or birth – there’s no limit to the imagination.
3. Stick some shells to the bottom of the frame. Then use wooden pegs to attach holiday photos or postcards to the cotton cords.
