Oh Those Photo Frames! What Else To Do With Them…

Oh my goodness so many photo frames out there. It amazes me how many. You know if you really need a photo frame, you can find many of various sizes, colors, and styles at local consignment shops and/or local thrift stores. A lot of times you can find a descent frame at a lower cost compared to a new one. Well at least in my experience I have found descent and inexpensive frames out there at my local consignment/thrift shops. It really doesn’t bother me that they are not new.

It has become a benefit to me to find these types of frames at their low cost. Not only to get more frames for pictures but for decor projects. Originally someone suggested to decorate the background of the frames with scrapbook paper and embellishments like doing a scrapbook layout. I was just not feeling it. The idea is great but I was just not motivated to do it.

Then an idea! After seeing so many beautiful wreaths on Pinterest, You Tube and at the stores, I got an idea. Why not make a wreath out of the these frames. Square wreaths, why not! I am sure I picked up the idea somewhere and truly don’t know where. I thought it was a neat idea and still do. Something a bit different from the typical circle wreaths.

Here are examples and how I created them…

Now this frame I painted it and distressed it a bit. Then I wrapped some jute twine all around but obviously not covering up the entire frame. I added the burlap leaves, ribbon and flower at the bottom.
Now this one a little bit more simple. I painted it as well and added the flowers on the corners. I then wrapped and glued the burlap ribbon and the word “Welcome”.
This frame is smaller, but just as lovely as the other frame wreaths. So again I painted the frame and distressed. I added the burlap ribbon and flower. I glued the word “Harvest” onto the burlap ribbon. Before I glued the word, I painted the “Harvest” word.

Now all the materials came from local thrift stores and dollar stores and also some items I had on had. Oh almost forgot, that all of these frame upcyclings are wood frames and was easy to paint. I thoroughly enjoyed making these transformations and plan to make more.
