    Decorated pictures frames make great gifts. They’re a good way to decorate any room, too. What is your favorite animal, pet, vacation spot, or other topic? If you’re making this frame for a gift, choose something that fits that person.

    On a plain plastic box picture frame, sketch and color your design, such as this owl, with Crayola Washable Window Markers. You can personalize the frame using a name or a greeting, such as LOVE YOU!

    Here are a few decorating tips: Create a textured wood look by drawing swirls to resemble wood. Draw feathers or fur by making small zigzags. Remember, if you change your mind, all you do is wipe off your design with a damp paper towel, air-dry the frame, and you are ready to begin again!

    Insert a photograph or colored construction paper inside your frame. See how different background colors accentuate your frame art. Black is shown here because this is a night scene showing an owl in its habitat. Isn’t it dramatic?
