Frame It

If you are anything like me, you have more than one empty picture frame sitting somewhere around the house.  Over the past year, I have decided to put those frames on display using odds and ends that I have  around the house.  I thought I would share my attempts to be crafty in this frugal find blog post.  Check them out below and maybe you will be inspired to create your own frame. 

Magazine cut outs for my sewing table.

A broken clock face replaced with a scrap of fabric and magazine number cut outs.

The big white frame came out of a free box at a garage sale.  The rest of the frames I had collected over the years.  Thanks to the Walmart fabric center I spent about $1 on fabric to fill them.  A very cheap way to decorate a large wall!

I used a brown paper bag as a background and then magazine cut outs to create this frame for my sewing table.

This frame I made as a baby gift for a friend using fabric, beads, and hot glue.


  1. Ohhh. I love the repurposing of the clock. You can find clock mechanisms for $5 at Hobby Lobby if you ever want to put a dial back on it.

    Also, I feel drawn to the last picture frame, not sure why though...
