I first took the back off the frame and took out the mat.
Then I took pink fabric from an old t-shirt (surprise, surprise, from Old Navy!) and covered the mat with it. I did a few dots of hot glue on the back to hold it in place.
I added in some pictures (one of my favorites of each of the kids) in sepia tone, and the added some buttons in there with hot glue. One thing I wish I'd done first is thread through the holes on the buttons for an added touch, but I could always go back and do that.
I glued on a few pink rosettes made from the same fabric that I used inside the frame, and ta-da! I had a creative, one-of-a-kind frame for my favorite pictures!
I think I'm going to add a little scrap paper in there with their names and ages in the photos, which is why I left some room on the lower left. I love how this turned out. It really catches your eye on my wall.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Have a great week - we're halfway to Friday!
