When it comes to art, I love to “go big or go home.” Whether it’s fun pop art, an elegant art nouveau piece, or a personal picture or memento, a good frame is always in order. These DIY frames to try this weekend focus on simple and inventive ways to display your favorite photographs, prints, or artwork, at a wallet-friendly price. Music to our ears.
An exposed-wood frame makes a great rustic accent, but Brepurposed takes this a step further with their easy painted frames tutorial. Cool, matte-pastel swathes of color add a fun, modern pop to the look. Pro tip: Masking tape is your best friend for pulling off those sharp, gorgeous-contrast edges.
We’ve all got busy schedules, so a five-minute craft like this art print frame by Minted is a welcome addition to our repertoire. Cute and eclectic, the design features fun pom-poms and a sparkly sequin cord for easy hanging. The coolest feature: The structure of the frame allows you to switch out prints at leisure.
A few words of inspiration can go a long way to upping your mood, so I recommend placing such signage in a visible spot (on your bedside table or in your entryway). This banner via Sugar and Cloth is no-sew and no hassle, and the result is a minimalist picker-upper that can be thrown together in under half an hour. Sugar and Cloth uses felt for this little number, but I don’t see why you couldn’t sub in your favorite print in a pennant cut.
Tell me, which of these three DIY frames would you want to make this weekend?
