Another fun frame!

I already mentioned the fact that I have a bunch of beat up picture frames.  I’ve already showed you how to paint and stencil a frame.  Well, here’s another one!  This one is covered in a fun blue fabric to suit this adorable picture of my nephew and his dog!  This picture was taken by Mr. B’s Photo Shoot, who also took the pictures in my About Me page.

Materials needed:

  • Picture frame
  • Fun fabric a few inches larger than the frame
  • Mod Podge

Instructions:

  1. Cover the top surface of the frame with Mod Podge.
  2. Lay the frame face down on the wrong side of the fabric.  Be sure to center the frame on the piece of fabric.
  3. Turn the frame and the fabric over and smooth the fabric into place.
  4. Use scissors of a rotary knife to cut the fabric out of the center of the frame.  Leave enough fabric to cover the inside lip of the frame.
  5. Clip the inside fabric diagonally to the corners of the frame.
  6. Apply Mod Podge to the inside lip of the frame and smooth the fabric over it.
  7. Apply Mod Podge to the outside edges of the frame and smooth fabric over it.
  8. Trim the excess fabric at the frame’s corners as close as you can.
  9. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the frame and smooth the loose fabric over it.
  10. Apply two layers of Mod Podge over the entire piece of fabric.  Always wait until each layer has dried before reapplying.
  11. Once the Mod Podge is dry, you can add a picture and your frame is complete!
