Easy Embellished Picture Frame {Iron Craft Challenge}


After yesterday’s tragic sewing accident, I was left with the need to come up with something else to fit the “notions” theme of this week’s Iron Craft challenge in a hurry.

I’d already been thinking of a plain picture frame that made it’s way into our house in one gift or another. I originally thought of covering it with fabric and changing out the glass piece for a piece of cork. But the glass doesn’t actually come out of this frame, so I decided just to embellish it instead.

So I cut the picture a little small. I told you I was in a hurry!

I won’t waste your time with anything as fancy as a tutorial here. All you need is

  • a picture frame
  • glue
  • rick-rack (mine is Wright’s brand)
  • 4 buttons (mine are vintage)
  • scissors

What you do is cut the rick-rack to size, glue it down and let it dry. Plain old Elmer’s is fine for this.

Glue the buttons on the corners if you like to cover up the messy edges.

Let dry and insert a cute picture. Or your little one’s latest masterpiece. Whichever.

This would be a really cute teacher gift or Mother’s Day gift for a grandma in your life. If you have an older kid, you could even make let them do it themselves.
