DIY Leaf Clip Photo Frame
I had seen several items similar to this project offered by retailers for upwards of $24. I liked the idea of what I saw but I wasn’t impressed with the overall look and definitely didn’t like the price.
Perfect for Upcycling Old Frames
This project can be made from thrifted or garage stash frames, or from frames on clearance at your local craft store. I happened to have a pair of frames that came to mind and would be perfect for our forest-themed bathroom. These frames are approximately 23″ by 11″ and work well with four 4 by 6 photo prints.
Easily Adapt for Any Size and Theme
You could make a smaller frame which holds three or two photo prints instead, or a collection of three sizes to cluster together on a wall. You could make a frame from door trim or wood shims to fit a piece of glass you have on hand from another frame, or you could skip the glass altogether. Instead of green leaves, paint them brown, or gold or whatever you fancy. I liked the way the tagboard absorbed the paint and felt it coordinated perfectly with the green in the frame. You should be able to complete this project in under 30 minutes, but will need to let the adhesive dry for 3 days to be fully cured.
