Seahorses range in size from 0.6 inches to 14 inches and come in many colours. This craft project allows you to use your imagination and creativity to make seahorses as beautiful as you imagine.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Paint the wooden picture frame the colour of your choice. Apply two coats of the paint and allow to dry for at least two hours.

  2. 2

    Paint the wooden seahorses the colour of your choice. Glue one wiggly eye onto each seahorse. Using the glitter glue and markers, add definition and details to each seahorse. To add sparkle to the seahorse all over, spread a thin layer of glue on the surface and sprinkle with a light dusting of glitter.

  3. 3

    Glue the seahorses onto the frame wherever you like. It's OK for the seahorses to overlap onto the picture area. Press each seahorse firmly onto the picture after applying the glue.

  4. 4

    Glue different coloured rhinestones around the picture frame. Create a pattern or place them randomly on the frame.

Tips and warnings

  • You can use foam seahorses instead of wooden seahorses.
