Beautiful Hand Crafty Frames

Frames are EXPENSIVE for pro photographers and for retail clients. A fun easy way to take a cheap thrifted frame and make it into something beautiful is by using craft paint, embellishments and a little hot glue.

I bought this frame at Value Village for $3.99

I always have crafting items around for other projects, and so I pulled out a few items I had laying around and decided to set to work on a pretty frame for a pretty picture.

First I grabbed some craft painting and compared the colors in the image I was going to use, so I could match it to the embellishments and image.  I did a coat of the beige, I added hints of the pinky peach and touched the edges with white. Then I let it dry for about an hour.

Once it was dry, I hot glued various paper flowers and decorative butterfly's to it, as well as a little pink ribbon. Wella! So easy, and so pretty.
