DIY Photo Frame

When we use a frame to encase our pictures and memories, we usually end up using it traditionally with the glass and backing. But to switch up your display and get creative with your photos, why not go back to basics and just use the frame. Find a frame you love and remove everything on it, leaving the picture frame intact. Once you have done that, you can hang pictures from the inside of your frame with twine or ribbon and small clothespins. Not only does this allow you to continually change the images you display, but you’ll also be able to show off your own personality with this fun and easy DIY project.

It may take a little elbow grease, but is well worth it for the results.
