Christmas Tree Frame Ornaments

I made a few pretties for some 
of my coworkers
and family for Christmas gifts.

I found these cute little frames
at Target (they were plain, simple little
brass frames that hang on
the Christmas tree).

I painted the frames with glitter paint that
I got from the local craft shop.
I used purple glitter paint on this purple decorated frame above,
and red on the red decorated frame, and green on
the green decorated frame.
I basically had 3 colors of glitter paint that I used.

I put a coat of varnish on the 
dried glitter paint.
After the glitter paint dried, I added the stick on
rhinestones by dabbing a little bit of 
glue on the frame and on the rhinestone 
to help it stick better and then glued on the 
white fuzzy yarn around the outer and inner edge of 
the frame to give it  a snowy look.

They turned out really nice,
everyone seemed to like them.

Did you make any of your gifts this year?
