Hello you wonderful people,
today’s DIY Project is about one of my favorite TV shows ever!!!
For all you friends lovers out there, I’m sure you remember the golden frame on Monicas and Rachels purple apartment door? One of mine and my best friends favorite things to do together is watch Friends and when she mentioned she would love to have a frame like that – my new DIY project was born.
She just moved into a new apartment this August so the timing was perfect ;) Now all I needed to do was find out how to actually make the frame. Fortunately, I found a good video on youtube and started making the frame.
What you need is:
- papier mâché or paste
- old newspaper
- printed template
- thin cardboard
- paper towels
- a cutter
- yellow paint
Print out the template and glue it onto the thin cardboard.
Mix the paste. The paste I used could be used up to 7 days after mixing it so you don’t have to be in a hurry finishing everything at once.
But paste on the newspapers and shape them after the template.
Once you have formed all the newspaper in the right way, you put paste on the paper towels and put a layer on all the newspapers and in between the spaces. This way the frame appears more evenly and steadily.
Let everything sit and dry out for at least 24hrs. ( or whatever your paste instructions say – depending on the paste used the timeframe can vary. )
Paint the frame yellow. Depending on which paint you use, you might have to paint it twice. I used acrylc decor paint and painting it once was enough.
Cut the dried frame out of the cardboard.
Apply double-faced adhesive tape to the back of the frame and glue it to your door :)
Because it was a gift I couldn’t glue it to my door to show you but I’m sure I will make another one pretty soon and I will post a picture then, for now I just laid it out on the floor and then give it to my best friend :)
By the way, she was really excited about the present and if you are a friends lover like us, I hope you will enjoy it just as much.
