When I saw these frames in Goodwill for $0.50 each I knew I had to have them. I'm such a sucker for heart shaped things, and picture frames can be REALLY expensive! First though I checked the back to make sure they could be unscrewed/opened. Then came the happy dance. So, here is how I made ugly frames with a nice shape, into super cute cheap frames.
First there was only glass in one so I took it out and discarded it. I don't think glass is necessary. Then I propped them on some spare spray paint cans so I could do the sides and top in one go. Then I sprayed an even coat on both and left them to dry. In the mean time I printed out two Instagram photos from Lauren's wedding at home on photo paper (my name on there is MalloryMakesThings).
After printing pictures, 2 more coats of spray paint, and dry time I unscrewed the back off. Then I cut my pictures to the shape of the back and put it all back together. Ta-da! Finished.
Now they're hanging happily on my bedroom wall. Super cheap for photo frames!
I've done this before and it's almost the only frames I have. The little strawberry frame above is thrifted too. The picture is from Madison. You can tell she knows I love hearts.
