Generally, you don’t have to pay as much for a frame that is simple and easy to work with when you want to use it to paint on and the like. You can also just order a custom holiday frame and add to it so go with what’s going to work in your particular situation.

The Paint

A good idea is to learn how to paint objects related to the holiday photo you’re going to frame. For instance, if it’s a scene with a lot of trees that represent how you feel about Christmas, you can paint custom trees onto the frame to make it even more interesting when used to frame a photo.

Do some paint pouring to customize a frame. Just pick out a few colors that you know are going to make your frame a good fit for your photo, and then learn how to pour them one at a time onto the frame.

When you go this route, make sure you don’t use too much paint because then it can get lumpy and not look all that great on the frame when you’re done. Basically, you’re just going to want to pour paint onto the frame in stages to get the effect you want.
