What you will need:

  • Mini picture-frame from craft store
  • Five-minute epoxy, available at any hardware store
  • Bermuda Cedar tree clippings
  • Shell, available from beach or craft store
  • Wood to cover frame in. We used Bermuda Cedar, which we managed to get as scrap from a local carpentry shop.
  • Knife
  • Photo or painting for inside of frame


  • Separate picture-frame from its back and take out glass so that the only part you are working with is the frame itself.
  • Measure and cut pieces of wood to cover the outward-facing sides of the frame.
  • Using five-minute epoxy, glue wood to sides of frame.
  • Glue greenery and shell to side of frame, if desired.
  • Insert photo or painting into frame.
