5 DIY Ideas to Jazz up Boring Photo Frames

January 31st, 2017

Photo frames are better loved than the reticent album because they proudly display your memories to all who set eyes on them. Complete with fold-able stands and easy to hang hooks, these boastful objects can be easily placed on your wall or desk or shelf. But, because of their value, photo frames are often sold at exorbitant prices. Just a bit of glitter or an extra rose can jack up the price by a couple of hundred rupees. Why let these easy-to-make objects burn a hole in your pocket, right? With a bit of patience and dedication, you can design your own photo frames, and guess what, they can be infinitely more creative than the ones you purchase from stores. Here are 5 ingenious ideas to add that extra something to your homemade frame.

Bottle cap frames

If you’re a beer lover, you’re sure to end up popping open a couple of bottles every month. Instead of discarding the caps, collect them in a box and after you’ve built up a decent collection, use these caps to decorate wooden frames. Use a hot glue gun to stick these caps on the borders of the frame in creative patterns.
