Let's get CRAFTY...

I found these little frames at Target in their dollar spot (however this 3 pack was $2.50) and I had a fun idea for some crafty home decor.
Edited to add: The openings of these frames are 4" x 4"

Step 1: Remove the ribbon that came with the frames and drill holes into each frame. (I drilled the holes 1 1/2 inches from the top and bottom and 1/2 from the sides.)



Step 2: Paint and distress the frames.



Step 3: Wire each frame together. (You could also use ribbon or twine to tie the frames together)



Step 4: Dive into your scrapbook stash and whip up some cute pictures to complete your frames. My plan is to change out the pictures for each holiday or season.

Step 5: Fill your frames with cuteness and proudly display in a prominent place in your home!



This whole project cost me under $5! Can't beat that! Now go make one of your own. If you do, I would love to see what you come up with.

*If you can't find the frames at Target, check out the dollar store. Happy Crafting!

I'm lovin' the frames! What a great idea! I found the frames at Target and can't wait to make them.
Thanks for a cute and creative idea. I especially like your idea to change out the frames for each holiday.

Sometimes I just hate you!!!baaahhh! I think I will make that...where did you get the cute pix in each frame...?

I went to Target again today, shocker, I know!!! But, I found those same frames in black! Yeah! It will save painting them! I'm one step closer to getting them done!

Melanie said...

Lauren and Andrea, you two are too funny! I bought some Valentine stickers at the scrapbook store to use in each frame and the "love" I just cut out of scrapbook paper. I can't wait to see all your cute creations! Mom, score on the black frames (even if that is cheating ha ha)

I went to my Target today and they didn't have any... although they were changing out the bins so hopefully they are coming. I guess I'll just have to keep going to Target everyday. Nothing new there!
