in Frame

If you break a framed photograph, you dump the shattered glass and the frame. Only what if the frame is particularly nice? Or what if the frame is virtually undamaged? All Of A Sudden you get some plastic picture frame ideas and turn an accident into a fresh esthetic object. So you say to yourself: “An old image frame never really becomes old”. In this article we’re going to show you some useful and artistic means to reuse old image frames.

When you want to recycle a photograph frame, think about what’s really left of it. If it’s not crushed but its color has worn out, go ahead and recolor it. You can turn it into a great colored photograph frame for the kid’s room, or you could paint it in white and take the new white picture frame and put a mirror in it instead of the glass. Now you have a new mirror in a shiny white picture frame.

Take all those postcards you've received for Christmas and select a really cute one. Then frame it with one of your unused photograph frames. You can even use it as a gift. Or, let’s suppose you’re really time pressured and there’s a friend’s birthday tomorrow. In fact you recollect you still have several genuinely crazy images from the last Saturday night party on your computer, and yes, he’s in the pictures and he’s horsing around. You print it and frame it. That gift is going to provoke some laughter for sure. After the birthday party you realize you built a terrific gift, you made everybody happy and you successfully reused an old picture frame.

What about those damaged frames, aren't you supposed to throw them away? Perhaps you should, but if you were wondering how to make a picture frame, you can craft it from other cracked photograph frames. Take those with the similar length and put them together, some nails and some tape might come in handy. Or if you’re in a creative mood build some special triangular, pentagonal, octagonal frames. Another idea is to buy a patch of flat Styrofoam and cut it to fit the frame. Glue it and you’ve got a brand new message panel.

How to make a picture frame look great by recycling it seems to be a sticky job at first but once you think about it a few times you might actually come up with some creative picture frame ideas.
