Music Frame 1 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers For this project, I found this package of 12 cardboard frames at my local Michaels store. This frame concept could be a fun group project!
Music Frame 2 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers I like to make my patterns from cereal box cardboard so that I can keep them and use them for many projects. Trace your music themed icons onto craft foam with pencil.
Music Frame 3 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers Cut along pattern lines with scissors. You’ll notice that I used a bright yellow craft foam but you will be painting over the craft foam so the color of foam does not matter.
Music Frame 4 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers With pencil, lightly draw guide lines approximately 3/8″ apart on front of frame. You will be using these as gluing guides. Glue shapes onto frame.
Music Frame 5 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers I cut my craft foam strips on my paper trimmer so that they are nice and straight.
Music Frame 6 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers Determine spacing and cut the strips to fit around the music notes and treble clef. Glue in place on frame. Add alphabet lettering to create wording of your choice. Let glue dry.
Music Frame 7 Love My Music Frame by EcoHeidi Borchers To color my frame, I first painted the entire surface with black. Let dry. Using a dry brush technique, paint the letters, treble clef and notes. I also used a dry brush to color the strips.To finish the frame, punch holes at the top, insert curled wire, add beads and attach through second hole.Tape picture to the back of frame.
