DIY Polaroid Photo Frame

Its the first day of spring and I’m feeling really crafty today.  After dropping off my sister at work, I stopped at my local Michaels Craft store and purchased all these goodies to make a cute polaroid photo frame for one of my friends. It was really inexpensive and the result is so pretty!

Step 1: Supplies

  • Wood Frame $7.99
  • Black Clothes pin $2.99
  • 1 Gold Spray Paint $3.69
  • Assortment of String $2.99


Step 2: Set Up

For this step, I used a white clear trash bag that I set up outside in my backyard.


Step 3: Spray Paint

Make sure to spray paint in the same direction to keep the paint consistent.

Step 4: Measure String Length


Step 5: Align Strings

Use a poloroid photo to help with aligning.

Step 6: Glue gun string to wood frame


Step 7: Use glue gun to attach frame holder


Step 8: Finished Product





How to Prepare for a Test

Finals just finished for me on Friday and I would like to reflect on this past week on all the good, the bad and the ugly. First off, finals were okay but not great. I’ve come into finals week better prepared than this past week. But I’m quite glad that I finished strong and I can finally start enjoying my spring break that is up until grades come out! worried

Wouldn’t it be grand ? If we all had photographic memory that would allow us to study the night before. But we all can’t be like iron man.


For us average folks (Me), I follow these tips:

  • Don’t Procrastinate!  Depending on the subject, give yourself a couple of days in advance. You’ll retain the information better and you’ll be glad that you did.
  • Study by doing homework problems! I can’t stress this one enough. I recently went through one engineering pad (200 pages) for a combination of 2 engineering class in one-quarter (10 weeks). That is quite a lot of homework problems.


  • For all my coffee drinkers, stay hydrated


  • Study in a well-lit area.


  • Get rid of all your distractions. Don’t worry they’ll be there for you to enjoy after your test.
