Fast and Easy Damask Frame

I'm in redecorating mode for our master bedroom going from a brown color scheme to black and white and gray. I was reframing some photos and had some wrapping paper from Michael's. One thing led to another and this frame was created. All you need is a large frame and wrapping paper to make yourself one. I'm sure the idea came to me because I saw this great project using wrapping paper as baby room artwork. I used the same concept except I turned mine into a photo frame. There are so many wonderful wrapping paper choices available to make your own custom looking frame. Plus you still have plenty of paper leftover to wrap presents. Its a win win!

You Will Need:

16x20 frame (or any other large frame without a mat)

Wrapping Paper (mine is a damask print purchased at  Michael's)



Take the cardboard backing out of the frame.

Cut a sheet of wrapping paper slightly bigger than the cardboard.

Wrap the backing just like you would wrap a present.

Center your photograph or artwork and adhere with double stick tape. I attached my photo slightly above center.

So fast and easy!
