Ugly Christmas Picture Frames!

It’s Christmas time, fools!  Yay!!!  I did a quick, fun, on the fly Christmas craft that I wanted to put out into the interwebs- world wide style. I had a few Santa pics without frames and everything in stores was like $15-$20 for a simple seasonal frame.  I’m a cheap ass.  I’m not ashamed of it.  I HAVE to be.  We don’t have a lot of dollars.  So that price wasn’t happening. Now, I don’t think that price is a rip-off…I feel like I need to say that.  I just can’t pay that.  Just not in the budget.  So I went into the dollar store thinking about making one.  I had a few simple plans and then BAM!  I looked around at all the crazy glittery décor and new what had to be done.  Just like an ugly sweater, I was going to deck out a cheap frame and start a new personal tradition.


The tutorial is pretty simple.


  • Glue Gun and glue sticks
  • Dollar store Christmas shit (they sell frames there, so that’s included here)
  • Sandpaper or steel wool
  • Christmas Music (optional)


  • Turn on Christmas music
  • Scuff up the frame a bit with some sand paper or steel wool, so the glue will stick.
  • Glue Christmas shit on (don’t burn yourself)- the more shit the better.
  • Bask in the glory of the ugliness.


That’s IT! Happy Crafting!

Be Ugly, Y’all!
