diy Christmas gift idea ~ clear glass block (the ones that open from craft stores) with family picture inside. Picked up blocks from Hobby Lobby - you need a 2 x 3 picture family. I put sand and sea glass in mine. I stenciled family on the glass.
DIY: Dress up a cheap frame by decorating is with glue, let it dry, and then paint over it with one solid color and it looks like a specialty carved frame! I already have a frame I was going to paint:)
