While Gloria’s house has a farmhouse style and mine has lots of coastal pieces, I like to incorporate a few DIY crafts that can go with both. This frame craft can easily match either style.
Dollar Tree Frame Craft
Have you spotted these frames at Dollar Tree over the summer? I hadn’t seen them there prior to this When I saw it and I had a vision for it right away.
Putting this together is super easy. I decided to give it a quick paint job to match other frames that it will be placed near. That’s optional though and you can get started by removing the backing and the glass and them simply cut and glue strips of ribbon to the front of the frame. I found this ribbon at Dollar Tree, too.
Pull a couple of small pieces from a floral arrangement to use as a topper for the frame. I had a few small bouquets of lamb’s ear in my craft stash that work great for this. They are attached with hot glue to the ribbon.
Next, I tied a simple bow using the same ribbon and glued that over the spot where the two floral sprigs meet.
Adding a strip of ribbon across and gluing it to the spots where the first layer of ribbon strips meet covers those spots and helps add the look of a house to the piece.
I like to add pearl half beads as embellishments to lots of projects. These are self adhesive and can be found at Dollar Tree.
Putting this together only took a few minutes and the plain inexpensive frame is all dressed up! This would be pretty to use as a frame for a family photo, but I had a different idea of how to finish it off.
I designed, cut, and weeded the word “home” and attached it to a piece of black cardstock. I cut the cardstock to size to fit below the top window of the frame house. The font I used is called DTC Honey Syrup.
After adding the glass back in, I added the cardstock and followed that with cardboard cutout that came with the frame. Then then backing was put back on and attached.
I love the way this turned out and I especially love that I gave a custom look to a simple dollar store frame. It’s always a win when small décor pieces can be made using inexpensive items.
I’ve added this to our staircase gallery wall and it goes well to break up the photos. Last year, I combined a Dollar Tree decal with a thrift store find to make a Family Sign for the Wall. I like having a mixture of photos and wall art on this gallery wall.
