  • Plain picture frame
  • Used film
  • 2-3 film spools
  • Glue gun/ glue sticks


  1. Cover the entire frame with the film using the glue gun. Carefully create folds using both sides of the film.
  2. Decide where you want to place the film spools. Glue film around the spool and then glue it to frame. Use a little extra film so you can create some folds from the film glued to the spool for added effect.
