I’m not exactly what you would call “crafty.” I mostly just steal ideas from my super crafty friends (aka Katie!!!). I found this awesome craft blog (Mad in Crafts) that features crafts that cost little but look great. That’s the business I’m in – paying less and getting more – so I thought I would share. If you like this feature, let us know. I’ll keep them coming. If not, just tell me to leave the craft stuff to my crafty friends :).
How beautiful are these Christmas frames??
Yes, they are Pottery Barn, and yes they are expensive – $30-$50 each. (I torture myself perusing their website all the time.) But don’t despair – they are SO simple to make using dollar store frames and grosgrain ribbon – all for $1 and change a piece! Look how Mad in Crafts frames turned out:
The ribbon is glued to the back of the frame to act as the mat. If you can’t find silver frames at the dollar store – just spray paint Goodwill or DI frames.
Another great craft inspired by Pottery Barn:
