Show Off Your Keepsakes With A Shadow Box Frame From Spotlight

Shadow box frames may look like regular picture frames, but there's a little more to them than meets the eye. The extra depth in these boxes allows you to store 3D objects inside, helping you show off craft projects, trinkets, awards and even clothing!

With a wide variety of sizes and frame types available, you can find the perfect small or large shadow box frame right here at Spotlight.

How to use a shadow box frame

Shadow box frames can be detached from the back like a regular photo frame, but it's how you attach and insert your trinkets that matter. Make sure to measure the height of them so you know they'll fit under the glass!

You can use glue dots, hot glue, double-sided tape, pins, velcro or craft wire to adhere your memorabilia to the back of the deep shadow box frame, and be careful not to damage your items as you work. Once dry, pop the backing back into the frame.

Shadow box frame FAQs

What is a shadow box frame?

A shadow box frame is a picture frame with a sturdy backing, frame and extra depth that allows you to display 3D objects inside. Shadow box frames come in a range of sizes, colours and materials, and can also be painted, carved and otherwise decorated if needed.

What to put in a shadow box frame

Things you can put into a shadow box include baby keepsakes, holiday trinkets, wedding and birthday memorabilia, graduation keepsakes and dried flowers. Make sure to measure the height and depth of your trinks to ensure they'll fit inside the box without touching the glass.

How to frame medals in a shadow box

Medals can be heavy so you'll need a reliable way to fasten them in a shadow box to ensure they don't fall down or damage the shadow box frame backing. Choose a box with a solid backing made from wood and not paper or cardboard. Then, use a hot glue gun or, for a less permanent fixture, craft wire, to secure the medals in place. Keep in mind that using wire will require you to poke the ends through the back of the box.
