This is a super cute gift for anyone on your list. It's super simple to make and you can customize it any way you like!

What you’ll need:

4 photo frames

Piece of wood

Wood glue


To start with, remove 2 of the frame's stands. You can remove them all but I found it was easier to change the photos with the stands still on.

These two frames will be the sides of the box and you can cut your piece of wood to be the exact same size.

Like this.

Line up the two ends and make your mark and cut to fit.

Now, apply the glue on the wood and edges of the frames to make a box.

Like this.

After you add the last frame, it's best to use a clamp to hold it tight until the glue dries. I also found if you add a couple of spots of hot glue together with the wood glue, it will hold until you clamp it.

Lastly, I added white paint to make the wood frame stand out. I did a dry brush technique so it's subtle but still effective.

I added some greens to it and changed the pictures on each side. You can also add a kid's hand print in one frame. This would make a very sweet gift for someone special.

What do you think? I think it's so special!
