The Candy Cane Ede Frame

Supplies:
– 1 unpainted frame (we used the Ede Frame)
– sponge paint brushes
– 2 cans of paint; 1 white & 1 red (Benjamin Moore has great coverage)
– painter’s tape (we used 1″ thickness to achieve our stripes)

Steps:
1. Paint the base of your unpainted frame white and let dry

2. Adhere pieces of painter’s tape across the fully dried frame in a spacing of your choice.¬†
The green tape will be the white stripes and the exposed white will become the red stripes

2b. Make sure you firmly press the tape down over all edges and corners to ensure there is no bleeding of unwanted paint onto the white

3. Once the painter’s tape is secure you can begin to paint the exposed white with red *apply 2 coats of paint if necessary¬†
