I love to recycle vintage frames that I find at the flea markets and thrift stores. It’s amazing what a can of spray paint can do.
This is my second project using the frames. I’m exploring different options of displaying the photos in them.
This frame is plastic. All the others have been wood. Not knowing how to attach any hardware to the sides to create a clothesline, I had to come up with a different idea.
After spray painting the frame red I used a piece of jute twine to make a loop to serve as the hanger.
With a red frame I decided on using a black and white (my favorite) photo for the insert. I attached the photo a piece of heavy white cardstock and then layered on a piece of black metallic paper.
There is no glass with this frame, so in order to protect the image I attached a sheet of transparency paper with brads to the cardstock frame I made. A few small pieces of mounting putty to attach the photo inside of the frame and that’s it!
An easy project that can be completed in a couple of hours, depending on how long it takes your paint to dry.
Next, I’ll try a frame inside of a frame. More colorful cans of spray paint and dog photos of course. The frame inspiration came from Pinterest, the rest from my own head of ideas.
