Today’s crazy craft material was a suggestion from commenter DBB, who asked: “Can you show us some crafts with refurbishing old picture frames?” Well, DBB, it’s taken me a bit of time to work my way through my list to get to your request, but I think my finds were worth the wait. (Hopefully you will, too!)
This idea from HGTV-fave Brian Patrick Flynn couldn’t be easier or more artful, despite the fact that there’s no art involved. Give empty frames a makeover with paint and arrange on the wall for a mod gallery effect.
If you’ve got too much bling on your hands, think outside the (jewelry) box! Add chicken wire to an empty frame like Marc Atiyolil did here for an attractive way to organize your baubles. Head to Examiner for the DIY details.
I love a good wedding photo booth, but they can be pricey. This empty frame set-up allows guests to create their own photo ops and snap away, without the hassle and expense of a booth rental. I bet this would be a hit at birthday parties, graduation celebrations and family reunions, too. Take a look at the rest of Jackie Wonders’ dreamy wedding photos on Love and Lavender.
Still want to frame some art? Try this twist from Come On Over. Wire, mini clothespins and an empty frame make a picture-perfect display.
