Whether you’re bored with the portraits or picture frames that you have, or you feel like adding a new addition to your wall, this crafty little project is not only fun, but is so easy to do, even DIY-beginners won’t have any trouble with it.
The general idea is to buy your own pretty fabric to use inside the frame. You could also use scrap fabric. Keep in mind that sizing may be a little tricky though.
Then, you can either decide whether you want to splurge on brand new blank frames, or save some money and use one’s that you already have. If you want to go for a minimalist look, opt for the same size and colour frames. If you’re looking for something arty and antique, try to find frames of different shapes, colours and sizes. The fabric also depends on your mood – go for bright bold colours and patterns to liven up the room, or choose neutral tones for a softer, calmer look.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Fabric - the size depends on the size and type of frame you’re using.
2. Frames - either new or old.
1. Iron the fabric.
2. Open the back of the frame.
3. Wrap the fabric around the wooden, back part.
4. Secure with tape to make sure it stays put.
5. Reassemble the frame.
6. And hang!
And there you have it. (for step by step pictures, go here)
