I have written out 4 easy to make box frames crafts so have a read and get your craft kits ready to createit!

Scrabble Sensation

Starting off with this stunning White 10 x 10 Acrylic Box Frame. This crisp white square frame complements any colour theme it is displayed with, so choose your preference and get crafty. Scrabble pieces are a super easy, affordable and quick way to personalise any space. There are lots of ideas you could explore such as family member names, pets names, places you’ve been around the world, a popular saying or even a family mantra you live by. Whatever the theme, make up your design and stick the scrabble pieces to a coloured background for a stand out box frame craft effect.

The easy steps to achieve this simple box frame craft piece make it the perfect activity for the whole family to join in and complete together. Alternately it can be a quick craft for a last minute thoughtful gift. Either way it will leave you with endless options for more stand out structures and artistic pieces whatever the space or occasion.

Legendary Lego

Starting off with this stunning White 10 x 10 Acrylic Box Frame. This crisp white square frame complements any colour theme it is displayed with, so choose your preference and get crafty. A classic, funny and light hearted box frame craft tells a story, and what a better way then with lego figures. The perfect thoughtful gift for dads, husbands, brothers, or sisters, wifes, or mothers of course! A really easy way of bringing a little bit of life to the walls of any room. For this, I would suggest the Black 8 x 8 Deep Box Frame as it’s big enough to create a lively display, but not too big that it would need filling to the brim or look empty. You could use old lego pieces of your own for that extra personal touch, or buy online or in some craft shops.A very simple craft that only needs some coloured card, some lego and of course imagination. A wedding gift, a birthday present, a ‘just to make you laugh’ thoughtful gift, can be easily created with this technique. I think thesebox frame crafts work particularly well with a little writing alongside, a wonderful way to add context and tell more of a story.

Perfect Polaroids

A huge trend that has been going on for a while and hasn’t seemed to slow down is the classic polaroid photos. A very simple way of displaying more images in a single frame is to create your own bunting of images within the backboard of the structure. I used this large Nicola Spring 16 x 16 Deep Box Frame. The best bit about using big frames is the amount of space you get to work with. Especially for a box frame craft like this, where you want there to be some open spaces. There are so many ways to make this your own and trust me when I say, it’s all in the detail.

For this stunning box frame craft you will need some string, mini pegs, tape and of course your images. You can use polaroids size or whatever print outs you prefer. Simply tape your string over the backboard and create your rows. Add your pegs and whatever decoration suits, I went for pressed flowers to match my theme of images. Then candidly add your pictures and secure them with the pegs. Slot the backboard into the frame and stand/hang for the finished look.

Don't be afraid to personaliseit! however you fancy. This box frame craft could be the perfect gift for a wedding or new baby, new house or even a birthday present. The design is so customisable you really become the artist you have always longed to be.

Blissful Beach

The only thing better than a great box frame craft is 3 box frame crafts in one collection. These box frames have multiple uses; a picture frame, a display frame and even a shelf as they have a larger depth than your usual standard frame. So keep that in mind when hanging these as they could be even more beneficial than you initially thought.

To create this bathroom beach backdrop you will need 3 of the White 4 x 4 Deep Box Frames, some sand, shells and any other beach themed items you wish to display. Perhaps a star fish you found years ago you’ve never found a use for, or a selection of stacked stones to give you a constant calming combo.

Once you have chosen your desired details and any background colours/images you want to show off. The last step is simply arranging it to your taste and this is the best bit, it can be so unique as you can personalise it to your home decor. The 3 frames as a collection really gives you that polished finished look everyone wants for any part of the house or business. And the best bit is, it’s cheaper than a bouquet of flowers, even one of those fancy mail order ones!
