Clay Photo Frames

These clay photo frames make a great gift for Grandparent's Day but you could make them for any occasion, or even use them to decorate your locker or desk at school! We have added magnets to ours but you could add a stand and use them for table-top display instead.

You will need:

Coloured air-hardening clay
Gems
Photo (passport size)
Card
Magnet
Double sided sticky tape
Glue

Instructions:

Roll out your clay and cut out the shape of frame you would like. We used a ruler to help with the square frame. We cut out the round frame with the rim of a large cup and made the hole with a biscuit cutter. Don’t forget to make the hole in the centre.

With an old pen, write your name at the bottom of the frame. Press the gems into the clay to decorate.

Leave your frame to harden for a few days.

Use double sided sticky tape to stick your photo to the back of the frame. Cut a piece of card the same size as the frame and stick it on to the back with double sided tape.

Finally, if you like, glue a magnet on to the middle of the card. Alternatively, attach another piece of card to make a stand.
