Ordinary to Ornate Frames

I needed something to do with my empty newly painted walls and didn't want to spend a lot. Frames can be so expensive. So here is what I came up with...I found some old frames from a thrift store for $4 total and transformed them into decorative frames that match the colors in my room:
Before:
After:
Here's what you need:
  • Old frames with a FLAT FRONT...doesn't matter what color/condition they are in.
  • paint to cover the edges of the frames
  • decorative paper (I chose 3 that coordinated together)
  • ribbon to match the paper
  • Mod Podge
Here's How:
Clean up the frames to get rid of any dirt. Paint the sides and edges of the frame. Don't worry about getting paint on the front, it will get covered with the paper.
 Cut the paper to fit slightly smaller than the front of the frames. I used one paper for 2/3 of the frame and a coordinating paper for the other 1/3. Mod Podge the paper onto the frame and then Mod Podge on top of the paper to secure it better and give it a glossy finish. Press the edges of the paper down and press out any bubbles with your finger.
Let dry and tie the ribbon around the frame where the two papers meat. The ribbon makes it a little harder to get the glass and board back onto the frames...just use some gentle force.

And Ta-Duh...here's the finished wall:

It adds such a nice, personal touch to our room without breaking the bank to do it!
