    1. Paint the front of the frame with Matte Mod Podge.

  • The girls drew pictures on small squares with oil pastels and selected one to add to the frame.

  • Add a poem or message or photo and this can make a cute Mother's Day picture for children to make and take home.
  • We found colored tissue packs at the Dollar Tree.

  • Use cut squares of tissue about 1-2 inches square or you could tear pieces for a different look.

  • This will make it easier to cover and won't tear like a large piece of tissue can.
