First paint the craft sticks. You can use a single color for the entire frame or color each craft stick differently for a multi-colored frame.
Once the paint dries, arrange the painted craft sticks to form a square. Glue them together at the ends using glue gun.
Decorate your photo frame with glue on some sequins, rhinestones etc. Make a backing board by tracing the outer outline of your craft stick frame onto cardboard.
Draw a slightly smaller square inside the outline. Cut out the cardboard along the inner outline. Glue this board at the back of your craft stick frame.
Cut out a photo and glue the photo at the center of the frame. Now finally attach 1 or 2 small magnets at the back of the frame using a glue gun.
