Step 1 A pre-cut cardboard frame makes a great base for this frame project.
Step 2 Trace your music themed icons onto craft foam with pencil.
Step 3 Cut along pattern lines with scissors.
Step 4 With pencil, lightly draw guide lines approximately 3/8" apart on front of frame. You will be using these as gluing guides. Glue shapes onto frame.
Step 5 It's easy to cut the craft foam strips on a paper trimmer or use scissors to cut straight lines in width of your choice.
Step 6 Determine spacing and cut the strips to fit around the music notes and treble clef. Glue in place on frame. Add alphabet lettering to create wording of your choice. Let glue dry.
Step 7 To create the painted look of frame, paint entire surface black. Let dry. Use dry-brush technique to paint over strips, lettering, notes and treble clef. Let paint dry. For wire hanger, punch two holes along top edge, insert curled wire into one hole and twist to hold in place. Add beads on wire and insert end of wire into second hole. Twist to hold in place.
