How to Make an Elegant Frame
An Elegant Frame
Lately, I’ve been wanting to change things around in my room. One of the simple and inexpensive ways to freshen up my home decorations is to change the frames on my walls. A couple of dollars for paint, thread, and beads can change the whole look of a frame. You can use an old frame or buy a new one from Dollar Tree. With a little bit of time, a frame can change from ordinary to special. An elegant frame. It can become an art piece to talk about and admire.
The supplies I used to make this frame is pearls, embroidered lace, and paint. Ready for a project?

Supplies for project
1 Frame any size
String of Pearls
This is an 8″ x 10″ frame I bought at the dollar tree.
Paint the frame white. Use two or three coats to hide the original color of the frame.
Glue the embroidered lace or any lace you have to the frame. I embroidered this lace for another project a few years ago and had a bunch of it left over.
Lace has been glued to the frame.
Start gluing the string of pearls 1″ from the corner. This helps with the corners. If you start by gluing the pearls in the corner it makes the corner look a little strange from the other 3 corners. One corner will be sharp and the others will be rounded. It’s easier to end the pearls in a straight line.
