I spent most of the afternoon on Thursday and redesigning several empty picture frames. I thought they looked nice empty at first but on a whim decided to change it up. Sometimes it’s good to re-arrange wall art so you don’t get bored of the art on the walls.
Here is how I made the decorative picture frames:
• Gathered all the materials & laid everything out so I could work more efficiently.
• Laid out the frames on the floor / table and eye-balled the fabric to cut.
(Pick how ever many different fabrics you want to use to create this look).
If there’s excess fabric that hangs over the frames, cut it off.
• On the wooden frames I used a staple gun & for the metal frames I used a hot glue gun to hold the fabric to the frame.
• On the small frame I had, I decided to used sample fabric form Calico Corners & used fabric glue to hold the pieces together. Then stapled the fabric to the wooden frame.
• Two of the frames, I used burlap, 4-inch stencils & black acrylic paint to paint some words of wisdom “be calm.” Acrylic paint doesn’t take that long to dry, it takes about an hour or so. The stencils, made it turn out nicely. While I was making the burlap frames, I thought if you didn’t want to use it for wall art, they would be perfect to hang jewelry on.
Voila, I finished! I Re-hung the frames..
Sample fabrics, Burlap, Gingham, 4-inch stencil Kit, Hot glue gun, Scissors, Acrylic paint, Small paint brush, Fabric glue, Newspaper, staple gun.
I think they turned out great! In a month or so I’ll change up the art again. Maybe I’ll make a custom chalkboard behind the sofa…that’s the next project on my list. Stay Tuned!
