I found this old picture frame for free at one our local teacher giveaway spots. One woman's trash is another woman's treasure. I saw the potential.
I cleaned it up. gave it a couple coats of white paint, added some hardware on the back, and hot glued a few strips of 2.5 inch ribbon (vertically), and of course adorned it with some cute little handmade felt flowers and ended up with this:
|My $2 Elephant picture frames...love these!|
|Close up of the felt flowers|
It was a piece of cake to make, and it is a lot more functional than the basket! So next time you are thinking of throwing out that old piece of artwork, save the frame and make one of these. You'll be glad you did! :)
