Disney at Ruffles & Stuff came up with a quick and easy (and cheap!) way to make glamorous gemstone frames. Her secret ingredient? Those flat glass marbles you can find in the flower arranging section of the dollar store. This is possibly the best use of these marbles I’ve ever seen! [click here for bejeweled frame tutorial]

You can find a huge array of frames at the dollar store, as well as the glass marbles you need for this project. Disney recommends hot glue for this project because it doesn’t remove the spray paint. Also, in her example shown above, she used embellishments like faux flowers and bows.

Project Estimate:

  • Frame, $1
  • Glass marbles, $1
  • Spray paint, optional, $1 and up or on hand
  • Additional embellishments, on hand or $1 and up
  • Hot glue, on hand

Total: $2 and up
