I wanted to make a picture frame covered in sand to match our new family pictures that were taken on the beach.
I found some clearance frames for $3.00! Then found the Mod Podge, then I was at a loss. I did not know it came in a Glossy Finish and a Matte Finish. I pondered on my project for a moment and went with the Matte Finish. I wanted the sand to look like sand.
Sand, Matte Mod Podge, Sponge brushes, Frames, Timer, and a Plastic Bowl to put Mod Podge in (not pictured)

1. First we painted the frames face as well as the inner and outer edges.
2. We placed the frames in the sand and pushed it up against all areas that had been painted with glue. The picture above is what it looked like after one coat.
3. After allowing 15 minutes to dry, we painted the glue over the sand and dipped it in the sand again.
4. Repeat Step 3 until desired look.
