it with paint or seashells to make a new photo frame to use or give as a gift. Others use the frames in other ways, like to hang wires and clips across, to hold notes, jewelry, or loose photos. Others attach foamboard and make a post-it center or a menu board for the kitchen.
“It really does go the full gamut in what people will make,” she noted. “People usually have a lot of frames around the house that they’re not using anymore. Now they can take the frame and make something totally new.”
At her class, Charlene will provide all the supplies needed for students to realize their creative visions, such as paint, seashells and sand, wire, foamboard, and hot glue guns. The students, she added, “don’t have to walk in here with anything.”
