Leah - these would be great! Pictures displayed in style! There are always small inexpensive frames to be had. Paint them and attach to decorative candle sticks, also painted. An excellent idea for bringing interest to a mantle or other narrow space.
That's a cute idea! Super glue those glass rocks you can buy from the Dollar Tree onto a flat surfaced picture frame, add embellishments. *** make the photo things with the rocks and then glue those to picture frames or letter shapes.
