Need a creative picture frame for Christmas this year?  Try our Christmas tag picture frame craft.  We actually stumbled across this unfinished wooden tag cut-out at our local craft store.  With a little paint, glue and ribbon it turned into a unique picture frame.  We've included a template of the tag so that you can make it out of any material you would like. 

What you'll need:

  • Wooden tag cut-out or our Christmas tag template
  • Material of your choice if you choose to use the template (craft foam or poster board would both be good options)
  • Red 3-D paint
  • White and red ribbon
  • 4 brass fasteners (also called 'brads' and found in the scrapbooking section of most craft stores)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Favorite holiday photo
  • Ivory paint (optional)

How to make your Christmas Tag Picture Frame Craft

  • If starting from the template, trace the template onto the material you've chosen and cut it out.  Paint it ivory and set it aside till dry.
  • Cut your photo to approximately 3"X3".  Glue onto your tag.
  • Cut two pieces of white ribbon and glue along the vertical edges of your picture as a frame.
  • Cut two more pieces of white ribbon for the other two sides of the photo.  Before attaching the ribbon to the tag, push the brass fasteners through the ribbon on both ends.  Spread the back fastener part out and then glue the ribbon down as a frame to the picture. 
  • Use the red 3-D paint to write your message in the open space to the right of the photo.
  • Add red ribbon through the hole in the tag.
