I guess lately I have been on a juice box craft kick. The other day while Livia was decorating her plant container I noticed that the inside of the Juicy Juice boxes where shiny! It got me to thinking…how fun would THAT be to paint? So we gave it a shot and the end result were these super cool Father’s Day “DAD” photo frames.
I am loving how vibrant the colors turned out and the kiddos are super excited to be able to give it to Dad.
Items Needed for Juice Box Father’s Day Frames:
(affiliate links provided)
- 3 Empty Juice Boxes
- Paint Brushes
- Paper Clips
- X-Acto Knife
- Sharpie Marker or Pen
The first thing you are going to want to do is cut open and wash your juice boxes. I cut the top and bottom off of ours and then cut down the back seam to give us a flat sheet.
Once dried the kids crumpled the boxes a bit to give them a fun texture and the went to town painting.
We used tempera paints because I thought a thicker paint might not compliment the shiny factor of the juice boxes as well.
My kids were a little heavy on the paint (they had fun mixing colors!) so it took a while for ours to dry. We took a break, went to the park, and by the time we got home they were dried.
By drawing on the back you won’t see any mess ups or nasty black lines on the front of your frame. Once done cut it out using your scissors and x-acto knife. When using my x-acto knife I did have to cut twice because the boxes are a little thicker than card stock. This is what makes them great for a photo frame! Just be careful so that you do not end up with cut marks from multiple attempts.
Then simply glue your photos into the empty spaces. Using a piece of scrap cut a strip that you can use to place across all three to help hold things together.
To make the frame stand up you can either use two paper clips or you can use two strips of scrap folded into an L shape and attached to the back of the frame. Both worked the same for me. And you are done! You have a fun, kid made, beautiful picture frame that Dad is sure to love!
