$4 DIY Burlap And Twine Picture Frame


I wanted to make something special for Danny's parents since they're coming to visit in less than a week, and I thought a decorated picture of the four of us would be perfect. 


With just four items from the dollar store, I was able to put together this lovely gift: a frame, a small roll of burlap, a spool of twine and a bunch of flowers.


I started by taking the frame and wrapping it in the burlap. A line of hot glue keeps the end in place.


 Then I wrapped it all the way around the straight edges, leaving the corners exposed., trimming and gluing as necessary.


On the second time around, I focused on the corners and added a little hot glue to keep them in place. 


This is what it looked like after that step.


 Once around with the twine.


Then I attached the picture to the cardboard stand of the frame with double stick tape. I used a thin line of glue around the very edge of the cardboard and adhered it to the back of the burlap-wrapped frame.


A little more hot glue for the two flowers and it was all done! In a matter of minutes, with just a few dollars spent, I had a beautiful gift that I hope they love as much as I do!
