DIY Photo Frames | DIY Room Decor

Cheap frames are easy to find but cheap photo frames that are worth buying are hard. That's why whenever I go to a thrift store I try to find the least pretty photo frame and think about what wonderful things I can do to make it a custom picture frame that I can use or give away as a gift.

Photo frames can tell a story. If you have a collection of it in your home, I'm sure that you have all your favorite memories and photos of your family lined up. My daughter loves to make DIY photo frames. She usually makes it girly and cool and has them by her bedside table. It's just so fun to see her turning all her craft and art into room decors!

So if you just want something for your next craft projects, gift or probably some home decorating ideas, this list will give you a lot to choose from!
