Using your craft gloves balance the frame on your hand and spray the edges of the frame. Rotate the frame and repeat.  Place your frame back in the box to dry.

Step 5

Once you frame is dry, bring it back inside and lay down a piece of cardboard to work on.  Lay out your rhinestone mesh and place the frame on top  to measure.

Step 6

Pull the rhinestone mesh over the top to meet the bracket. Holding it there pull the excess mesh from the bottom (don’t make it to tight), folding it onto the under lip of the frame and measure where your cut will be.

Step 7

Glue into place (The E6000 did not hold very well and it took a couple tries with long periods of holding it in place to get it to stay – Use a glue Gun)

Using your razor trim the bottom of your rhinestone mesh to fit the underneath of the frame and glue it into place.
