DIY Open Frames
Do you like to change out pictures frequently? With four grandchildren, I love switching out their photos often. With these easy to make open frames, I can do that without taking down the frames.
I used four frames I bought at the Dollar Tree, burlap sheets, rope, mini clips and chalk paint to put these together. I also used hot glue and sand paper.
Using Waverly brand chalk paint in Celery, I gave each frame two coats.
To paint the mini clips, I placed a toothpick between the clips to hold onto while painting.
I cut the burlap sheets to size along with a piece of card stock and placed those in the frame. I put the glass in next to make it sturdy and followed that with the cardboard backing.
I used a medium grit sand paper to distress the edges of the frame to give it the look that would match the room these are going in.
These are going into a room that has cottage/coastal decor, so I decided to use a piece of rope on the back of each frame to hang them. I hot used the ends onto the cardboard back. The mini clip is also hot glued onto the front of the frame.
These frames are 5 x 7 and they hold a 4 x 6 frame nicely, letting some of the burlap show around the photo.
Supplies: Frames, Paint, Burlap, Rope, Mini Clips, Sand Paper and Hot Glue, Paint brush.. I had everything on hand except for the frames, so my total cost was $4.00. I love how quick and easy these are to make and how quickly I can change out the photos, too!
