I wanted to say “make a doggie frame” but this frame is sooo much more, and the principle of making this project can be used for any kind of display you want. Blue Artichoke Interiors posted a tutorial on how to use two dollar store frames to make a unique display item. In this case, a photo of a beloved doggie is in the smaller, center frame, and the space between the frames is covered in burlap and dog bones. You can match the objects to whatever photo you are displaying, like the seashells surrounding this beach photo at Decor Chick. [how to make a display frame]

Project Estimate:

  • 2 frames: one larger, one smaller (make sure you have space for decorative items when smaller frame is laid over larger frame), $2
  • Burlap material or brown kraft paper, on hand or $1
  • Duct tape, on hand
  • Hot glue and glue sticks, on hand
  • Picture, on hand
  • Objects to glue onto frame, on hand or $1 and up

Total: $2 and up
