Reader Question: What to Make With the Glass from Picture Frames?
Sometimes in your crafting adventures, you find yourself using only a portion of a product. You only need the top part of something, or the insides, or some other little bit off of a larger whole to complete a project. What, then, do you do with the crafty by-product that's left over?
Reader Breeanna has just this dilemma. She does a lot of cross stitch and embroidery, which she frames in picture frames. However, she doesn't use the glass part of the frame. She's got a bunch of these little sheets of glass and no idea what to do with them, so she asked for help on our Facebook fan page. So far, people have suggested:
- Broken glass mosaic
- Sandwiching photos or art between them to make floating frames
- Using them as a canvas for painting or other artwork
What do you think? If you had a whole bunch of glass pieces from picture frames, what would you do with them?
