There was only one frame in my kit and I have eight girls, so I asked on our local Buy Nothing Facebook page for frames and window screen. I didn't get any hits, but one person did suggest asking a hardware store to see if they had any torn screen that they were throwing away. Then I went to the Goodwill to look for frames and about had a heart attack when I saw their prices. So I went to the Dollar Tree all disappointed because I had to buy them new and the whole point was to reuse and recycle. Well, they had a bunch of document frames with broken glass, so I asked if I could get a discount on them, and she gave them to me for a quarter each. When I thanked her profusely, she said, “No, thank you, I would have just had to throw them away.” Score! Saving the planet! THEN I went to Home Depot and asked if they had any window screening they were going to throw away, and the guy pulled out a roll that he keeps around for odd things and told me to cut as much as I needed. Then I went home and made a mess out of my kitchen because the last time I had made paper was 38 years ago. (Did I say that out loud?)
If you have enough frames, it's handy to use a second frame on top to catch any pulp that might want to slide off the side of the screen. The frame had kind of a channel running through the sides, so I covered it with duct tape so pulp wouldn't get stuck in there.
Now is the time to add any decorative bits to the screen, before you pour the pulp on. We used dried flower petals and confetti that I hole-punched from a colorful catalog.
Here are a couple of our finished products:
