A Great Use for Wooden Beads

Something that is hand-made is always more special than the regular machine made things. Giving gifts that you have made yourself to loved ones on special occasions will make them feel all the more special and loved. Handmade photo frames make perfect gifts for the ones we love, we’ve given you the gift of a step by step procedure to create a wooden bead picture frame

Craft Material Needed

  • 4 regular craft sticks
  • 11 mini jumbo craft sticks
  • 2 mini craft sticks
  • 12 wooden beads, 1 inch each
  • 8 inches ribbon or string, 1/2-inch wide
  • Clear overhead transparency film or plastic
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Step 1

To make the sides of the frame, stick three evenly spaced wooden beads  in between over your craft stick. Let it dry and then glue another stick over the beads. Repeat the same with three wooden beads and two more craft sticks. Make sure you let it enough nicely before proceeding.


For the top and bottom of the frame, repeat step 1 with slightly bigger craft sticks.

Step 3

Glue a long piece and a short piece of craft stick to form an L-shape.  Ensure that the angles square and the pieces are straight. Hold them together until the glue sets.

Step 4

Repeat the same for the other end. Please ensure that the pieces do not detach while drying.

Step 5

Stick the other smaller piece over the longer one and let it dry.

Step 6

For the back of the frame, glue two smaller craft sticks over a set of five craft sticks laid together. Make sure that the mini sticks are stuck half an inch before the bottom and top.

Step 7

Once all the pieces are set dry, lace the back of the inner stick edges with a line of glue and fix the frame back (made in step 5) so as to cover the inner opening of the frame. Let the freshly fixed frame dry completely.

Step 8

Double up a piece of ribbon or string and glue the ends at the back. This will be used to hang the frame on the wall.

Step 9

Now cut your favorite picture as per the frame size and place it within the frame. You can also cut a transparent sheet of the same size to add it as a protective covering over the picture. The wooden beads picture frame is ready.
