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 http://alifedesigned.blogspot.com/2012/01/what-to-do-with-thrift-store-frames.html 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!
