Easy DIY Photo Frame


I'm here today to show you a fun, easy and fairly cheap way to make a unique photo frame. I was at Lowe's with the hubby and I saw this ceiling medallion and I immediately thought, photo frame. I snatched it up (I think it was about $20) and then I went to the spray paint section and picked out a light blue spray paint. I went home....and it sat in my garage for a couple of weeks.....

Then I finally I decided to spray paint it. While it dried I opened up photoshop and made a circle mask with the same dimensions of the circle in the medallion. I think it had a 4.5 inch diameter. I found my photo, edited it a bit and then clipped it to my mask. I printed it out from my home computer with some cardstock and then just cut the circle out. The quality of the print isn't the best but it works for now. I taped it to the medallion (after it was completely dry) and hung up my new frame.


What do you think? I love my new frame and I especially love the little pic that is in the center of it.
