7. Bind picture frames together like Bromeliad Living
One really big picture frame looks striking in a room, but large frames can be expensive. You could bind together several simple picture frames to make one large piece of art. Then blow up a piece of art and cut it into parts to fit in each frame.
8. Decorative paper frames from Not Just a Housewife
There are so many pretty decorative papers and now you can put some of them on your walls by pasting them on picture frames. This project works great on unfinished wood frames with a flat front.
9. Aged picture frames from Crafts by Amanda
If you like the aged and shabby chic look, try this project on your picture frames! You don’t have to use the same robin blue paint; any color paint would work as well. These frames would go great with vintage prints.
10. Frames shelves from Shanty 2 Chic
Turn your simple picture frames into something super functional and unique: frame shelves! Attach wood to the back of your frames and mount them on the wall to hold books, accessories, or cute toys in a child’s room.
11. Yarn-wrapped frames from Centsational Girl
With a little hot glue and a lot of yarn, you can wrap your picture frames with yarn in your favorite color and add texture to your frame gallery.
12. Map picture frames from Alyssa B. Young
If you like to collect maps from your travels or just like the look of maps, wrap your picture frames in strips of a map!
Check out thrift shops and stores such as Target and IKEA to grab picture frames that are simple and affordable. Then you can try one or two of these methods of decorating picture frames! I’m regretting throwing out a box of old frames a while ago, but I’m going to make up for it soon…
