DIY Picture Frames (Decorate Your Home Series)

Have old picture frames laying around and don't know what to do with them? Here's a project that turns something old into something new!

I recently moved and discovered that one of my picture frames wasn't so lucky to make it here alive! (broken glass). So instead of throwing the lovely frame away.. I decided to revamp this old picture frame into something new.

For this project you will need:
Scrap fabric of your choice (2 different types)
Hot glue gun/ sticks

total cost for this project about $4 dollars or in my case (totally free :) )

Step 1: take the glass out of the picture frame and remove the back card board

Step 2: cut out fabric large enough to cover the front end of the cardboard

Step 3: Glue fabric to card board to provide a back drop for your picture frame

Step 4: Find a flower pattern of your choice and cut out pattern pieces. (in my case i used a square then trimmed edges to make a rounded rectangle then i glued the bottom piece of the flower to form the shape of the petal)

Step 5: Design pieces to fit in a pattern then glue down in its proper space

Whala!! you have a brand wall art for your newly 
decorated home!
