This is a super easy project!
We were again inspired by a decor store.
I feel bad copying store ideas, but I also feel bad paying high prices! :)
Their frames had a built in arch, to make them would require power tools ( well this time anyway;) ). We didn't feel like pulling the saws out today and so we turned to a really easy
way to make these, plus the frames are already made.
We used Michaels cheapo unfinished wood frames and inserted the glass from another cheap Michael's photo frame. Hinges and decorative wood pieces came from Hobby Lobby.
This is probably the hardest part - putting on the hinges.
Make sure you have the hinge going the way you want to picture to tilt. I had to unscrew a few! :)
We used a little wood glue to stick on the wood piece.
We gave it a couple coats of spray paint.
I read a post by Rene of Cottage and Vine sharing her favorite places to find free artwork.
I found these free fern prints at one of the sites she recommended, Vintage Printable.
Carefully pop the glass out of the second photo frame and place into hinged frames along with print cut to size.
We used this same idea in a craft group I'm involved in to make a set of hanging frames.
This would also be easy to make with thrift store frames.
Nicole and I have been busy with tons of garden and yard work.
There's always so much to do this time of year!
We hope to bring you some more projects soon!
