Instructions:

1. Prepare the Cups:

  • Start by removing the bottom of each cardboard cup. You can do this by cutting around the base of the cup with scissors. Ensure that the cups are clean and dry.

2. Crochet the Frame:

  • Begin crocheting around the rim of one cardboard cup. Insert your crochet hook into the edge of the cup and pull a loop of yarn through. Chain a few stitches to secure the yarn.
  • Single crochet (sc) around the entire rim of the cup. Continue until you reach the starting point. Slip stitch to join the round.
  • Repeat this process for each cup, joining them together as you go to form the desired shape of your frame (square, rectangle, circle, etc.). You can experiment with different crochet stitches or patterns if you like.
  • Once you’ve crocheted around all the cups and formed the frame, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends.

3. Finishing Touches:

  • Use the hot glue gun to secure the cups together at their edges. Be careful not to burn yourself.
  • If desired, you can add embellishments to decorate your frame. Glue on buttons, beads, or ribbons as you like.
  • Allow the glue to dry completely before using or hanging your crochet frame.

4. Display Your Creations:

  • Your crochet frame is now ready to use! You can insert a photo, artwork, or any other small item into the frame to display it creatively.

Tips:

  • Experiment with different yarn colors and cup sizes to create unique and personalized frames.
  • You can make the frame sturdier by adding additional layers of crochet or by reinforcing the back with cardboard or felt.
  • Get creative with your embellishments to add personality to your frame.

Enjoy your crafting!
