How to Create a License Plate Frame

License plate frames give you a creative way to express yourself or show off some of your personality through your car. License plate frames also help secure the license plate used to identify your vehicle. You can purchase many ready-made license plate frames, but it can be difficult to find a personal license plate frame that suits you perfectly. You can create your own, however.

Step 1

Take a generic license plate frame outside and spray paint it the color you want. This will also cover any writing or advertisement presently on the frame.

Step 2

Wait for the spray paint to dry completely.

Step 3

Lay the embellishments you want to use on your license plate frame where you want them to go. Move them around until you have them exactly where you want them.

Step 4

Glue your choice of embellishments onto your license plate frame.

Step 5

Wait for the glue to dry.

Step 6

Shake the license plate frame and nudge each embellishment to make sure you have fastened all of them securely. If some of the embellishments aren’t secure, add more glue. Allow the license plate frame to dry before putting it on your car.
