Fabric Covered Picture Frame

Happy Friday! I wanted to pop in really fast and share with you a quick las minute craft that you can whip up for mom (or grandma) for mother’s day! I made this fabric covered picture frame for my own mom.

I wanted to give her something cute that she can put on her desk and school. She loves to show off her grand baby so I thought it would be fun to gift a frame with P’s hand print in it and she can switch it out for the latest pictures as time goes on.

To make your own you’ll need a wood frame, I got mine from Michael’s for $1. You’ll also need fabric scraps cut into stripes approximately 1 inch in width, modge podge, and an exacto knife.

After the frame is covered with stripes of fabric give it a nice healthy coat of modge podge over top.

Forgive me for not including a photo of the next step but after the modge podge has dried, take an exacto knife (or ehm a box cutter if that’s what you have on hand…just sayin) and cut the excess fabric off around the frame.

All that’s left is to pop in a sweet photo of cute little palm print and give it to the mom in your life! Have a great weekend, friends and
