Frames, Revisited

By Christa Terry

A lot of easy DIY projects leave me feeling flat, especially if they involve scrapbook paper. I know, scrapbook paper has about a zillion uses besides making a book to document who got born when, but it just sticks in my mind as a grandma thing. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But, yeah, there are lots of things you can do with pretty paper, and yesterday’s post about vintage (or otherwise salvage-worthy) picture got me to thinking about what else you can do with a picture frame, which led me to a pretty sweet tutorial (that’s fast and wicked easy, to boot):

The ingredients are simple.

1 picture frame, 5×7″ or larger
1 piece of totally sweet scrapbooking paper or burlap
1 fancy clothespin or one you paint yourself
Some adhesive

And as you might imagine, the directions are simple. You could probably even figure them out yourself without much trouble. But you can find them nonetheless at a thousand words, where Jennifer Morris displays her buttloads of style (plus gorgeous shoes, oh em gee) and puts us all to shame with her mad DIY skills.

Oh, and as to why you’d want to make a frame like this… well, if you’re like me and you like to rotate your pictures fairly frequently, then you know that pulling off the back of most frames can be a real pain in the tush.

    I don’t know about stuff like this – take a good picture and it loks chic but then you diy it and it looks hokey. At least that’s been my experience. Because of that I’ve decided to stick to more standard projects (painting etc.).

    Very sweet, I enjoy do it yourself projects. I have discovered a lot by doing my Do-it-yourself projects over the years, as well as ended up saving a huge amount of cash too lol

    The frame presented here is seriously cool one – what a fun idea for a Christmas craft.
