Make a Cheap Frame a Classy Frame

If you are anything like me, you like pictures.  I realized as I was unpacking that I have an insane amount of picture frames, and with leftovers from the wedding, let's just say I could open my own frame store.  But one thing I learned a long time ago is that the best thing to get your mom for any holiday is a nice framed picture.  They can't get enough!  So this is another Christmas gift, one I gave to both my mom and Matt's mom.  I found these frames at Wal Mart for $4 each!

I used a metallic silver craft paint and gave the frame a couple of coats.

I took a piece of white cardstock to make the mat, and then put in a picture of the family from our wedding.  Voila!  Perfect gift, which including supplies, cost under $10.

Can't wait to make some for our house too!

  1. Seems to be a very nice gift idea. Last week, I arranged my cousin’s wedding at one of best Seattle Wedding venues and bought wedding bands for the couple. Happy to know that they liked these bands very much. Truly we all had amazing time there.
