DIY Photo Frame Clip

I picked up five of these empty frames this summer at a yard sale for 10 cents each. The package that they came in stated they were embroidery frames. I liked the size, depth and color of them and knew I could transform them into something crafty.


I glued burlap fabric to a piece of form core for the backing.


and then I glued a metal clip inside of each frame.


Leaving the frame open with no glass allows me to easily change photos.


So simple and I love having a new way to display my favorite photos of our family.
