Original photo frame

A beautiful frame of unusual shape is an original decoration of the interior. It will look good on the mantelpiece in the living room or will serve as a small pleasant souvenir to family and friends. The manufacturing process does not take much time, for this you will need beads and the following materials at hand:
A piece of aluminum wire (40 cm);
Multi-colored beads (100 g);
Fishing line or wire for beads (200 cm);
2 shampoo caps (gel, cream);
Cardboard, blue yarn, gypsy needle;
Photo to choose from;
Gouache blue, varnish.

First you need to take an aluminum wire and bend it in half; the ends should be slightly parted to the sides, as if forming a triangle:

At one end of the wire, after retreating by 4-5 cm, we fix a thin fishing line or wire for beads (it is preferable to use a wire, then the product holds its shape better). We begin to string beads on it, parallel to tightly wrapping the thread around the aluminum wire, avoiding gaps.

We continue to string beads; after 4-5 cm remain to the end, we fix the thread. We take the shampoo caps, fill it with alabaster mixture, insert the product into them with ends (about 4-5 cm). This should be done quickly until the alabaster has hardened, positioning the frame as evenly as possible. After the product is completely dry, paint the lid-stands with gouache (you can cover them with sparkles). We cover the whole frame with varnish, let it dry.

We cut out a circle from the cardboard (hollow inside), tightly wrap it with a blue woolen thread.

Inside the circle we have the photo we like. With a small piece of woolen thread, we fix the frame with the photo exactly in the middle of the dried structure. Optionally, you can insert a beautiful picture inside the frame and decorate the frame with a small brush of yarn.
