Decorating a picture frame

You can easily customize and personalize a picture frame using Loctite® adhesives and your favorite decorative objects like jewels, beads, raw pasta, seashells, fabric, ribbon, etc.

Step-by-Step Directions


Gather and then arrange various small objects on the flat surfaces of the frame until you’ve created a design that appeals to you. Remove from the frame, and recreate the pattern on a flat surface.


Protect work area with a drop cloth or newspaper. Apply Loctite® Stik 'n Seal® Indoor Adhesive to the backside of each decorative object. For faster adhesion, briefly join the two pieces to be bonded, pull apart, and rejoin. Carefully position on the frame in your desired pattern.


Continue to adhere decorations to the frame until complete. Excess adhesive can be removed with a damp cloth.


Leave undisturbed for 2 hours. Full cure is 24 hours.
