This easy, versatile project shows you how to decorate a frame with uni-Chalk markers and funky leafy designs. We all quite often have a plain photo frame at home to display our cherished memories so it’s a great weekend craft project. Thanks to the uni-Chalk markers, which, can be erased very easily with a damp sponge, you can vary the patterns and the colours to suit you and adapt them for the seasons. For this spring, we’ve been inspired by the tropical plant world and we’ve opted for white and bright colours.
Decorate a frame with uni chalk markers: you will need
The uni-Chalk Marker will be your only tool. This chalk marker can be used indoors and outdoors as it is rain resistant. The chalk marker pen range is available in 11 colours and with four different tips sizes, which are removable, washable and replaceable. So you’ll surely find what you need for your creations!
If we’ve chosen white, red and pink, you can of course create your own selection. Then decide on the position of the patterns you want to draw to decorate a frame with uni uni-Chalk markers. Flowers, leaves… once again, anything is possible!
To give your photo frame a neat and stylish update with uni-Chalk markers you’ll require…
- A frame (the material must be smooth and non-porous)
- Uni Chalk Markers (here we’ve chosen the PWE5M markers with medium 1.8 – 2.5mm points in White, Red, Fluorescent Pink)
- One or several reference patterns. If you want to use the patterns we’ve created, download your Template
- A damp cloth or sponge in case you make a mistake
Give a photo frame an update with chalk markers – get started!
One by one, using the fluorescent pink, red and white markers, trace the different leaves onto each of the four corners of the frame.
Have no fear: if you’re not completely satisfied with your lines, just go over it with a damp sponge or cloth and start again. The uni-Chalk marker is also ideal for any little ones who also want to try customising something!
As you decorate a frame with uni-Chalk markers you can see this combination of vibrant colours and simple shapes look amazing on a plain surface. These simple line drawings produce incredibly effective results
To complete your creation, let your imagination guide you and add some details. We’ve chosen to decorate the designs with small white lines for a more modern and harmonious effect.
And voilà, your personalised frame is now finished. Now you just need to add your photo, illustration or something else and admire your work!
