UpCycle Old Picture Frames

I had a few old pictures frames laying around.  They had been part of an art project and were very messed up.  I tried to sand them and paint of them but they were too gross.  So I had the idea to recover them with fabric.  It worked well and they turned out perfect for what I needed them for.

What you need:
  1. Picture Frames
  2. Fabric
  3. Hot Glue
  4. Scissors
What you do...
  1. Take the glass and backing out of the frame
  2. Cut your fabric in rows with room to wrap around your frame
  3. Squeeze hot glue on your frame and then wrap the fabric (with the ends in the back)
  4. Replace the glass and backing.
This is not a hard project but it takes patience. It will look good as long as make sure the ends are not sticking out.  You might even want to fold in the edges and glue down.  Try it out and let us know how it goes. - Rejoicing in the present
