How do I make a small picture look nice in a large frame?

Riva SueJohnavallance82Rebecca Taylor


I have a vertical 4 X 6 photo and want to put in a 5 X 7 heart shaped unfinished frame. The photo is about 1 inche to small on either side. It is a wedding picture, how shall I decorate it to make it look like it fits and how shall I paint the frame?

    Hi Kim, you could use a colored mat to cover up the 1 inch difference. You could decoupage the frame with napkins and use the colors that was in your wedding and match the mat color to a color in the napkin. Hope I explained it well enough.

    Hi Kim,

    You would need a Heart Shaped Picture Mount. A Picture Framer should be able to help with that or maybe a Craft Shop.........

    You could attach your photo to a nice colored construction paper or pretty stationary paper cut to the correct size for the frame.
