Craft Stick Picture Frame

Craft Stick Picture Frame

Craft Stick Picture Frames are great introductory craft project for Daisy scouts, and can be completed in a 30 minute meeting.  It can be messy, so make sure the girls have old t-shirts that are okay to get paint on or smocks.  These are terrific crafts to do around Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to frame cute pictures of the girls to give to Mom or Dad!  You can also use a permanent marker to write messages on the craft sticks, like names or holiday messages.
