DIY Frames to Give Your Home Extra Style

DIY materials for your apartment decorations

Showing off pictures is a great way to keep your favorite memories displayed in your home. If you want to personalize your photos even more, creating DIY picture frames is a great way to do so, and can even save you money in the process! Some of our favorites include:

  • Foam Core Frames - There really isn’t much you can’t do with foam Core boards! Create any shape you want by tracing or freehand drawing on the foam Core board, and cut it out! The fun colors and layered shapes used by Sugar Bee Crafts in this tutorial are a great place to start.

  • Washi Tape Frames – Washi tape is a staple for many DIY-enthusiasts looking to personalize old pieces of furniture. This material is great to customize a plain wooden frame, or even to create a photo collage on the wall itself.

  • Photo Clipboards - This tutorial from Love Grows Wild is a fun project designed to add a modern feel to your home. By starting with a blank wooden canvas, you can sand, paint, or stain the clipboards to any shade you want. What you’re left with is a rich and expensive looking canvas for less than it would cost you to buy frames in a store!

With these ideas, your new home at Hawthorne Gardens can be customized in no time at all!
