Buying frames can be costly. Especially when it comes to fulfilling our gallery wall fantasies. Fortunately, thrift shops are flowing with perfectly acceptable frames if you can get passed some dusty glass or an awkward print. Filling those frames with art & photos can also add up. I've currently got a stack of empty 8x10's just waiting to be utilized.
Here is one, simple D.I.Y. that I've assembled and now display (and love) in our home. It costs around $5 and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Think you can handle that? Good. It's fairly simple to replicate, but I'll break it down for you anyway.
Supplies: Thrifted frame, 8x10 cardstock quality paper, washi tape, scissors, ruler, & pencil.
The ruler comes in handy to keep your lines straight and proportionate to the paper's edge. The washi tape is super forgiving, so don't beat yourself up if it doesn't look perfect.
The lines will also help you determine how long to snip your washi tape strips. Easy, right?
Here it is on a floating shelf in our dining room. What other kinds of things would you recreate with washi tape and frame? The possibilities are endless!
