  • Level:beginner
  • Time:45 minutes

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use pliers to gently twist off the hanging loops from pendants and charms. File the rough edges smooth.
  • 2
    Glue the jute into the groove around the frame: Start at the lower left corner, lay a short bead of glue, and carefully press the jute into the groove. Continue around the frame. At the end, trim excess jute so the ends meet neatly. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect, as other elements will hide the join.
  • 3
    Plan the locations, and glue charms and other items at intervals to the frame. Let some parts overlap the picture area, and layer with other parts.
  • 4
    Glue clusters and individuals of pebbles and/or shells between the Steampunk parts.
  • 5
    Lay a squiggly bead of glue near the bottom of the frame, and sprinkle sand or glitter while the glue is still hot and sticky. When glue has set, shake off excess sand or glitter.
  • 6
    Thoroughly wash the glass and insert your picture. For an added touch, glue a small bird charm to the glass.
