Tastemakers Presents: DIY Picture Frames for Summer Memories!

Posted by on Fri, August 22nd, 2014 at 12:30 pm

My how the summer has flown by! It’s back to school time, but before you send the kids off, why not try a fun craft with them to showcase memories from this summer? That’s exactly what Lolli from Better In Bulk¬†wanted to do, and found an easy and fun way to make DIY picture frames with her family. As this week’s Tastemaker, Lolli shared recipes, craft how-tos and stories about her family, traveling and more on her blog!

Lolli came up with this simple craft project after attending a local summer craft camp with her kids. Not only are the supplies readily available at craft and hobby stores, but it’s a creative activity to keep your kids interested in. Since it’s the end of the summer, they can even choose their favorite photo from a BBQ, pool party, beach day, vacation or anything else you’ve done this summer to go into their homemade frame.

Read more here to see Lolli’s step-by-step how-to guide and get ready to make another simple summertime memory with your family!

Tell us: what’s your favorite thing to do at the end of summer?
