Crazy about frames

I accumulated quite a few picture frames recently and I decided over the past few days to actually do something with them instead of moving them from place to place in my craft area. I am not sure if you are like this, but when I get working on a craft project, suddenly, I want to make a ton of them at once.

The first one I worked on was actually a pendant frame that I got for a steal at Hobby Lobby on clearance ($3.79 for a $59.99 item) since the outer frame for the glass had come apart. Easy fix with a few nails and glue. I decided to take apart a bunch of flowers I had gotten from Michael’s a few years back (I am a craft hoarder!) and I just filled the pendant case with them. No gluing at all!

I am really happy with how this turned out and it was perfect to fill in a wall space between the entertainment center and the kitchen nook. Next I dabbed with a few more frames I got from Hobby Lobby (for $1.39 each) and added some scrap booking paper and a few wooden butterfly cutouts. These are hanging in the master bath on a door we are not using that goes to the 2nd bedroom. These look great and added a nice pop of color to the room.

Not done yet!

Today, I used a few frames I had gotten from an old neighbor who moved a few months ago. She had 6 pictures frames that had your normal flower images in them. They were not bad, but I wanted to do something different with them. I took them apart, starting with the two largest frames and added some pictures of Kiara! I them taped the two frames together to make them open like a book and place them in the entertainment center area that you put your tv (our tv is way too big to fit that space).

Still not done! LOL!

There were 4 more frames, two of each style left. I decided to take the wood grain ones and do a little more scrap booking to add them to my guest bathroom. I painted the wood grain white. I also finally used the mini shadow boxes I got at Dollar Tree forever ago and placed flower petals in them to add I nice wall piece to the area.

The remaining two frames I took apart and added some inspirational quotes and words from my scrap booking lot. The frames were super dusty so I had to wash and scrub them to get them back to their nice golden color. I hung these in the kitchen on the cabinets that are on either side of the kitchen sink. Sometimes you need a little motivation when doing dishes!

For now I think I have gotten my frame obsession under control, although I think I still have a few hiding in the guest room. 🙂
