20 Outstanding Ways to Reuse a Picture Frame

I love browsing sites like Hometalk for inspiration.  I can find all kinds of ideas there.  So when I was asked to round up some of those ideas for you, I jumped at the chance.  I had so much fun curating this board, 20 Outstanding Ways to Reuse a Picture Frame, for Hometalk!


If you’re like me, you have a stash of old picture frames, and while you don’t want to get rid of them (you know-just in case) you may be wondering what to do with them.  This board features ideas for every season.  These ladies are so creative.  I mean, making a pumpkin out of a frame?  Love it.  And of course, I included my own little $1/1minute antique frame transformation.

Just click on the picture to hop over to Hometalk, and check out these great ideas.  You’re sure to be inspired to pull out an old frame and give it new life.  My only problem is deciding which one of these neat upcycles to do first!

After you see them all, be sure to come back and tell me which one’s your favorite- and if you’re a veteran frame-fixer-upper, you may even recognize one of the projects as your own!

Sharing at some great linky parties!

    So clever! I have a stash of frames and just posted a project I completed with one odd ball. Now I have a great source to consult to utilize my other frames
