Learn how to decoupage a frame for Valentine's Day in our tutorial Learn How to Decoupage a Frame with Scrapbook Paper.  This tutorial is similar to this one but may have other helpful information.

STEP 1: COLOR SIDES

Easter Decoupage Frame - Color Edges

Using a Sharpie marker of coordinating color to your chosen paper, color the sides of the frame. We also colored the inside edge of the frame. These can also be left in their original color. Leave the marker dry well before continuing or the color may run.

STEP 2: SEAL THE SIDES AND FRAME CENTER

Easter Decoupage Frame - Seal EdgesUsing the Mod Podge, seal the edges of the frame that you just painted with the sharpie marker.  Don't forget the inside edge of the frame opening.  While you seal, the sharpie marker can bleed onto your brush and into the Mod Podge.  So, we want to make sure the edges are sealed before proceeding so the color will not bleed onto the rest of the project.

Be sure to wipe off or clean your brush after this step to ensure any of the sharpie color is not on the brush.  This could show up on the rest of the frame if you do not clean it.  I cleaned by wiping off with a paper towel.

STEP 3: CUT OUT PAPER

Easter Decoupage Frame - Trace Frame on Paper

Place your scrapbook paper face down on the cardboard.  Place the frame face down on the paper.  Trace around frame on the paper to mark a cutting line.

Using the Exacto knife and the ruler, cut out the square from the paper. Be sure to cut on top of the cardboard to be sure you don't damage your table.

STEP 4: TRACE AND CUT OUT THE CENTER

Easter Decoupage Frame - Cut Frame Opening

Turn the paper face down and place the frame face down onto the paper. This is how the paper will be on the frame. Trace around the inside of the frame and then use the Exacto knife to cut out the square.

STEP 5: APPLY THE FIRST PAPER

Easter Decoupage Frame - Apply Mod Podge

It's time to decoupage! Apply Mod Podge evenly across the front of the frame. Carefully place the paper onto the front of the frame. Be sure to place it down correctly because it's hard to move the paper once it's placed down. Easter Decoupage Frame - Place Paper

Smooth the paper out across the frame to remove any bubbles. You can use a smoothing tool or card.Easter Decoupage Frame - Smooth Paper

The paper may extend slightly over the edge of the frame. Fold and wrap this extra paper around to the sides. You will want to decoupage this down to the sides of the frame by putting Mod Podge underneath and working the paper until it stays down.

You could also just trim the extra paper off by waiting for the Mod Podge to dry first. Put Mod Podge over top of the wrapped around paper also. Be sure to clean your brush if some Sharpie marker color came off onto your brush.

STEP 6: APPLY MOD PODGE OVER PAPER

Apply the mod podge over paper in an even coat.  Be sure to coat the sides and inside edge of the frame again. This will seal the paper down to the frame and add a nice shine to the frame. Easter Decoupage Frame - Apply Mod Podge over paper

STEP 6: CUT OUT EGG SHAPE

Easter Decoupage Frame - Cut out Egg

To add more decoration to this frame, cut out an egg shape from a coordinating scrapbook paper.  This Egg Shape coloring page was a printout from FirstPalette.com this would be a nice decoration on the front of the frame.  A link to the template we used is available below.  Cut out the egg template and then trace it onto the scrapbook paper to be applied to the front of the frame.  Cut the egg shape out of the scrapbook paper.

STEP 7: APPLY SECOND PAPER

Easter Decoupage Frame - Apply Egg Shape

Apply Mod Podge over the area of the frame to apply the egg shape.  Place your egg shape cutout in position.  Apply Mod Podge over the entire front of the frame to seal the egg shape to the frame.

Apply one or two coats of Mod Podge over the entire front of the frame. Allow the Mod Podge to dry for about 30 minutes between coats.

The back of the frame can also have Mod Podge applied if you desire. This would give a more finished look to the back of the frame also.

FINISHED
