I thought it would be fun to post a little crafty goodness today to lighten up on all of my recent writing. ;) I made a few of these frames over Christmas as gifts and loved how they turned out.
I had several fabric scraps laying around in my fabric stash from an unfinished quilt top that I purchased at an estate sale. If you don't have quilt top scraps then any old fabric will do. The frames are of the cheapest kind straight from the dollar store. (Shoot! Now my friends that I gifted these to are going to know how cheap I was in my gift giving.)
I just took the backs and the glass out of the frames, cut strips of fabric and hot glued the fabric strips to the frames. Then I added doilies and yarn for the photos. On one I just wrapped it all around several times with zig zags so that I could stick photos or prints in between the yarn. On the other, I glued one piece of yarn and clipped the photo with mini clothes pins. Either way, they are an easy DIY gift. Of course, I had to make a couple for myself to keep and put in place of all of our Christmas decorations.
If you don't want to be quite as cheap as I was, then you can order a print like this one from Recipe For Crazy and include it with your frame.
