Christmas craft help - decorating picture frames
December 23, 2013 6:36 AM Subscribe
Every year my family does a craft project around the Christmas table. This year we're decorating picture frames. I'm supposed to buy the supplies. Except I've never done this before and I don't know what to get. Help.

My idea is to buy unfinished 5 x 7 frames from a craft store and either paint them or cover them with fabric, then apply decorations like snowflakes and glitter and stuff. How long would paint take to dry before we can apply decorations (probably with glue guns)? Is fabric a better option? How difficult is that? I am open to anything, it just needs to incorporate a picture frame.
In previous years, we've made snowmen out of socks, mini christmas trees and mini wreaths. There will be six adults, a teenager and a 9 year old. The 9 year old and her mother are frequent crafters, the rest of us have very little to zero experience (apart from Christmastime).
I need to buy this stuff today, in person, in Milwaukee. I have money to spend but I need to keep my expenses down. We have Michael's and probably other craft stores but I don't know what they are (Hobby Lobby is out of the question).
