How many picture frames do you own
that are the right size but not the right look?
Don't throw them away before reading this DIY idea!!
I have several. This past weekend I hit the craft store and purchased a spool of 100% jute fringe and recovered one.
I loved how it turned out and could not wait to share it with you!
Here's How To Do This Project
For this project you will need the following:
- a frame
- fringe (buy at your local craft or fabric store)
- heavy duty scissors
- hot glue gun
STEP 1 - Cut the corner of your fringe on an angle like shown.
STEP 2 - Measure the length of fringe you need to the other corner and cut it on an angle the opposite way.
STEP 3 - Hot glue the inner side of the fringe....
....and press it to the frame.
STEP 4 - When you have finished hot gluing the fringe all around the frame the corners will look like this. Let's clean them up!
STEP 5 - Cut a half inches of fringe like shown. Then cut THREE more.
Each will look like this.
STEP 6 - hot glue one to each corner of your frame (to hide all uneven corners).
Your frame will look like this:
Any fringe will work so get creative! I love how it looks with a mat (this is a photo of my parents, two young love birds)
Hung on a wall with frames of other finishes creates a unique and lovely statement.
Try it in your own home!
