Do It Yourself Photo Frames
Hello, dear readers!
I would like to invite you to make creative photo frame with your own hands.
I remember my grandmothers room that was filled with photos. She did not store them in albums, but hung on the wall and was very excited to show us these pictures and talk about them. It was very interesting.
Spending time viewing photoalbums can be a great time too, recalling old memories and sharing experiences with friends.
But im sure that photos can transform our interior . We just need to pick multiple photos from old albums or print latest pictures from most memorable events. And make photo frames yourself.
Do it yourself: Photo frames
Photoframes can be put on the table or hang on the wall horizontally or vertically. Or you can combine few large and small pictures by placing them in a random order. You might even use few digital photo frames beside normal ones.
Yvonne Schroeder came up with a very interesting solution for the design of internal and external corners of rooms, both with color and black and white photographs. Use it! (Photo above)
If you have a ready-made photo frames, albeit in different sizes and colors, made of different materials, outdated and unattractive, then this is just what we want!
Paint all the frames in a bright color – that’s the new look of our interior! If you have no photo frames at all, make them yourself.
From what we can make a frame for the photo?
The suitable materials are plywood, fiberboard or cardboard. Don’t know if there is a piece of plywood or fiberboard at your home, but probably cardboard can be found easily, because there are often left boxes from shoes or some other products. Well, if you don’t even have old boxes, because you are throwing away all unnecessary rubbish, you will have to buy stuff in the store.
How to make a picture frame with your hands?
There is nothing easier! Of plywood, fiberboard or cardboard cut out the rear part of the frame of the desired size, then horizontal and vertical stripes, which should be glued on the perimeter of the rear part of the frame (do not forget to leave top unglued, so you can insert photos). The front side of the picture frames from cardboard can be cut whole.
Detailed instruction can be found here >> .
Photo frame can be hung on the wall with the help of tabs, staples, hooks, which need to be glued to the back of the frame. Another attachment option – twine or tape, stuck between the back and front sides of the frame. Decorate front side of the frame, here you can let your imagination fly.
How to decorate a picture frame?
You can make decoupage or glue over the remnants of wallpaper , decorate with buttons , ribbons, flowers, lace and beads, shells.
I gathered some creative ideas for decorating picture frames by yourself from a variety of internet sources.
Do it yourself. Photoframes. Photos
I like all of these original photo frames, and more than other i like frames, decorated with lentils, painted in different colors. This way you can decorate photo frames with coffee beans, and corn, and buckwheat. Apply glue to the desired part of the frame, so it does not dry up, and pour on a greased surface some grain, crushing it with your fingers.
It is interesting to check out frames, decorated with pieces of old cd discs.
Photo frames for children can be done together with your kids, for example, from Lego. And how cute looks baby picture inserted into the child’s photo frame!
Photo frame made of pencils, of course, made by adult. First pencils are cut to size, sharpened and then glued to the front of the cardboard photo frame (source – http://www.alittletipsy.com/)
Old wooden frame, too, can be renewed not only by painting: wrap with twine or thread, cover with burlap or wrap in … map! (source –http://alyssabyoung.com/).
Especially recently I like different crafts made of the twine. Recently, i have made twine box for small items.
Another great idea – a panel for a photo made of matchboxes!
You’ll need quite a lot of matchboxes. Insides of the matchboxes should be glued to each other in rows, in side row glue matchboxes completely.
Then cut the wall from particular matchboxes. Glue this construction on a sheet of cardboard. Paint the top of the front part, after drying decorate with lace and flowers. This is how easily you can make interesting photo frame by yourself.
Such a photo frames can be used not only for pictures but also for the various panneau. For example, place inside lace cloth, it is a very interesting area in a modern interior decor .
On the other ideas and digital photo frame decorations i will talk next time. Do not miss future publications!
