Up-cycled Photo Frame Tutorial


I was in Tesco the other day and saw a rather cute frame idea using wooden pegs, it wasnt quite my style but it gave me the idea to create my own version.

What you will Need 

Plain black frame


2 Mini Wooden Pegs

12×12 Simply Creative County Garden Paper Pad

How to Make 


Take the glass out of your frame and carefully use it to draw around on your favourite paper, I chose the pretty feather paper from the Simply Creative County Garden paper pad.


Cut a length of twine 3 cm longer than your frame width and lay across the paper securing with tape at the back, make sure you stick it low enough that you can fit your pegs inside the frame.

Glue your paper to the back of the frame stand for extra strength.


Use two pegs on the twine to attach your favourite photograph.Pop the paper back in the frame and secure.


This is an easy craft to display your photographs and you also get to show off your favourite papers too, you can quickly update the photos in seconds.


I would love to see your DIY photo frames, tag @i_heart_maggie on Instagram or @IHeart_Maggie on twitter.
