CIY Staff Tips:
- Experiment with other colours of paint to customize your picture frame!
With scissors, cut out a picture frame shape on the cereal box to your desired size.
Mix blue and white paint in the cup with a craft stick, then paint the plain side of the frame. Let dry 1-2 hours. Paint a second coat. Dry again 1-2 hours.
While paint dries, cut different colours of construction paper into strips and cut 1 folded newspaper sheet into strips.
Snip a small slit into the paper straw.
Slide a construction paper strip into the slit, then wrap it around the straw and adhere the other end with glue. Repeat with a newspaper strip and as many construction paper strips as desired.
Repeat Step 5 to make enough paper quills to cover all or part of the frame.
Glue the paper quills to the painted frame, let dry, and display!
