Crafty Shark Week to you! Yesterday I sat down and got dollar store crafty with just a few bucks worth of supplies. This Shark Bite Picture Frame will set you back about ten cents! Maybe less, depending on your stash. It’s easy, quick, and cute. Ready to find out how to make it?
- A piece of blue craft foam or card stock, on hand or $.10 (10 sheets per pack at the dollar store)
- A piece of recycled white cardboard or card stock, on hand
- A piece of twine or ribbon, on hand
- Scissors, marker, and hot glue, on hand
Total: FREE and up
I already had all this stuff on hand, so it was a freebie for me. If you don’t have some of these supplies, just get creative and substitute. You can paint a piece of cardboard blue or white if needed!
1. Trace a rounded triangle shape on the blue craft foam sheet. I freehanded it. Draw a smaller rounded triangle inside the larger one.
2. Cut out inside triangle.
3. Trace shape onto white cardboard or card stock. I traced mine onto the printed side of the white cardboard so when I turned it over, the plain white side would be the side that showed on the frame. Add jagged teeth inside the small circle.
4. Cut out the traced shape on the white cardboard. Cut the outside first, then cut inside the small triangle, leaving the teeth for last. It’s easier to cut the teeth out when there’s a bigger hole already and you can just cut each tooth out one by one (instead of trying to zig-zag cut continuously).
5. Glue blue foam to white cardboard background. Draw nostril holes on the shark!
6. Turn the whole thing over and glue a loop onto the back of the frame for hanging. I glued an extra piece of ribbon over the loop just to secure it.
7. Put a photo in the hole (I taped mine with masking tape so I could remove it later if needed).
