Back To School Photo Frame

This DIY back-to-school photo frame is my latest contribution to e-how. I did not hesitate for a second to create this project and write the tutorial. I love taking pictures (understatement of the year), so a photo prop for the very first day of school was on my long list of crafts to make.

This summer will be extra special because our son will start Kindergarten in August and since he has been going to preschool for the last two years, he now understands the meaning of a vacation. Not to mention, he’s all excited about going to the ‘big kids’ school.

So here is a sneak peek at how to DIY this awesome back-to-school frame for that first day of school picture!

I used a laser-cut frame, sidewalk chalk, spray adhesive, mod podge, acrylic paint, and some wooden letter embellishments.

You can grab these items at your local craft store, but I  have also put together a list on Amazon if you prefer to purchase some of the supplies online.

I love how it all came together. I was pressed with time trying to meet a deadline (what else is new in my life?) and I have to tell you I am impressed with how this back-to-school photo frame was so easy to put together.

But, it was so much fun, even my soon-to-be 5-year-old son helped! I also included an alternate finish. So, head over to e-how to read the full tutorial: DIY Back to School Photo Prop

If you don’t have time now, pin it and save it and make it later!

    1. Hi Teresa!
      I picked a laser cut frame from Michaels, this particular one has an opening of 11″ x 14″ – Perfect opening size for the portrait! 🙂
