The following is a post from contributing writer Jasmine.
I was over at a friend’s house, taking my little one to the bathroom, when I noticed she had taken a memory verse card and clipped it to a picture hanging on the wall. I loved the idea of having my memory verse, or any learning aid, displayed in various places in the house. This makes it so easy to spend a minute or two working on memorizing a verse, or learning a bit of information, as you go about your daily task.
My girls and I decided to get creative and create “learning display frames” to display our memory verses, their art cards, and their music lessons.
- wooden picture frame
- small wooden clothes pins
- crafting paint
- miscellaneous crafting supplies (scrapbooking paper, tissue paper, embellishments)
- Mod Podge
Note: These are the directions for one of the frames I made. Feel free to use whatever supplies you have on hand to create a unique, one-of-a-kind frame!
1. Remove backing and glass from picture frame. Paint frame in a base color (blue).
2. Paint frame with a second coat (here you see a iridescent pearl coat).
3. Tear a flower from tissue paper. Lay in the corner of the frame and crinkle it a bit.
4. Paint over entire frame with Mod Podge to both seal it and give it a glossy luster.
5. Paint clothes pin to match frame.
6. Glue clothes pin to frame.
7. For the “picture,” you can use any picture you may have, pressed flowers, or a cross stitch pattern.
These frames can be customized in so many ways. We made one to display our art cards and one to display music cards/music assignments. Another great idea would be a recipe holder for the kitchen. Customize the idea and come up with the perfect display frame for your home!
