Lindsay at Living With Lindsay recently revealed the nursery for her soon-to-arrive baby girl, and it's really fabulous. Among the beautiful touches in the room is a vignette of three frames displaying three-dimensional heirloom baby clothes and shoes. She used larger frames from a craft store, but dollar store frames would work nicely for a variety of smaller items -- especially if you think beyond clothing. What precious collection can you display using the 3D framing method? Learn from Lindsay how she did it: [how to frame 3D items]

This is a great method to use for framing sports jerseys, or how about something for dad's man cave like fishing lures? It'd be pretty to frame some river rocks or seashells, feathers or flowers. What would you frame?

Project Estimate:

  • Frame, $1
  • Batting, $1 or on hand
  • Fabric, on hand or more
  • Items to frame, on hand

Total: $2 and up

    How adorable for a nursery. I love all the fabulous things that can be done with dollar store frames. I just posted about a dollar store dog biscuit frame I made.
