artsy-fartsy mama: Bling Frame Makeover

Bling Frame Makeover

Frame Makeover with Darice Bling on a Roll

Sometimes all a frame needs is a little bling to take it from "meh" to marvelous! Working with Darice's Bling on a Roll couldn't be easier. With a sparkle-obsessed mama and a girly-girl daughter, I see a whole lot of sparkly "makeovers" in our future!!

Frame Makeover with Darice Bling on a Roll

Bling on a Roll is a mesh ribbon with multi-faceted metallic gems that sparkle like rhinestones. All you need to do is cut the flexible roll of "diamonds" to size and adhere to bling-up any craft or decor project!  Darice also offers adhesive backed Gemz in a variety of colors. Cut into any shape to make customization a snap!

Supplies:
5x7 Frame
E6000 Glue

Step 1: Cut 4 pieces of Bling on a Roll about 7 inches long. Since all frames are a bit different, measure your frame or line up the Bling on a Roll to check the length.

Step 2: The bling was a little too wide for the frame, so I trimmed off one line of Bling on each strip.

Step 3: Add a line of E6000 glue to the back every few rows of Bling. The Bling on a Roll is light, so it doesn't need much glue to hold. I added glue to each end, then every few rows in between (see image above).

Step 4: Center the Bling strip and lightly press it to the frame. It shouldn't pop up, but if it does, just hold for a minute or two until it sticks. I recommend adding the top strip first, then work your way around the frame and align the gems as best you can.

Step 5: Let dry for an hour or two, then add a photo or printable! (Image in frame from Kensie Kate)
