Upcycled Picture Frames-Creating Art For Free | Amy with The Blissful Bee

Sometimes you have a bunch of old frames lying around the house and you just don’t know what to do with them all! I know I find myself running into this problem, and the other day I decided to do something about it.


I dug through my old frames and picked the simplest one I could find. First, take out the glass, then cut your scrap fabric to size and tape it (or glue it) to your cardboard backing.

The next step was to spray paint the shell. I used some satin spray paint I had left over from another 
After the spray paint dried, I glued the shell onto the fabric backing. 
And tada! You’re all done:) Now you’ve created some decorative art for free!!

Amy I love this idea! I have a huge box of old picture frames that could have a new lease on 
life now.  Thank you as always, for sharing your creative ideas with us-

  5. Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your
    site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to
    resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

    With thanks!
