More Decoupage Decor - What Fun!

Craft #3
Recycled Collage Photo Frame

I got ready to change the photos in this collage frame I purchased from Target a few years ago. When I opened the back - I found that moisture had gotten between the photos and the glass and the photos were stuck to the glass.

I decided to simply take the hard board backs to each frame and decoupage cut outs from the Tommy Bahama Caribbean Cay print I found. I got it on sale and used a 50% off a coupon!
I got a yard and a half for $8.00! We used the fabric to recover my hope chest and placed it under our living room window for extra seating.

I cut the patterns out, decoupaged them on then took tiny pieces of sea glass and affixed them to small clothes pins found at Wal Mart, to hold special photos or mementos.

Whaaaa La! A recycled collage frame, scraps of fabric, and a little glue!
Nice addition and pop of color to my wall that is attractive AND functional!

Creating...such fun!

Watch for more!
