Thrift stores, garage sales, heck even your basement, picture frames are everywhere! You can make so many different things with photo frames. In fact, it’s a good starter project for learning DIY painting. They are typically pretty inexpensive, if you don’t like it you can just give it back to a resale shop without guilt! I just scored 10 picture frames for 10 cents a piece; so awesome!
Here are some basic supplies that you could use:
- Wood glue
- Decor (flower, burlap, hardware, cork, etc.)
- Hot Glue Gun with extra glue sticks
- Sandpaper (Learn more about sandpaper here)
I love to make these little flower holder photo frames. Each one I make is uniquely different and finding each piece is also fun!
Chalk board signs are some of our favorites, too! Frames can make perfect displays for short messages or even business cards!
And why not a cork board message board! The possibilities are endless!
We did a photo transfer on wood and put it inside these frames. You can see these in person at The Mineral Point Hotel.
Here we added a small vase for holding flowers or greenery, interchangeable with the seasons.
So, these are just a few ideas I have. But there are so many more ideas I cannot wait to do and share with you. We do want to know what you have done, please share with us!
Thanks for reading this weeks blog and happy junking,
