Here's my version of a Dollar Store craft. It's quick, simple, cheap and cute. Exactly my kind of project.
The supplies are 3 Dollar Store frames with a flat front, paint of your choice and brush, glass stones from the Dollar Store (over by the floral section) and a glue gun. The project cost me $4, since I had the paint and glue gun on hand. I chose to use the turquoise stones and turquoise and white paint to coordinate with my living room. I can't wait to see them up on my shelf or picture ledge (haven't decided what to hang yet).
So onto the craft. Super simple. Take apart the frames and remove the glass and backing. Paint the frames and let dry.
Use your hot glue gun and glue the stones around the frame. Be careful with the glue gun and don't burn yourself! Put in the glass then your picture or as I used, a word. For fun free fonts go here.
Et voila. You are finished. You could also use the clear stones with any color paint. They look especially good with silver or gold paint.
