*Not a real holiday, but hey, it should be.
Craft Sticks and Paint
You’d need to gobble up a whole box of frozen treats to get enough sticks to make a decent photo frame. Thankfully, we can just head to the craft aisle and get what we need. You’ll also want washable craft paint to color your sticks — or buy pre-colored sticks.
The template below is for regular size craft sticks, which are about 4 1/2 inches long and a 3/8 inch wide.
This frame is set up to make a rectangular frame to fit a 3×2 inch print. It’s design allows you to slide a photo in from the side, avoiding the need to tape or glue your print. Feel free to swap the photo anytime you want!
