Picture Perfect!

I recently found this double frame at a yard sale and   walked right by it to look at other things. For some reason I went back to the frame and decided to buy it even though I have a bazillion frames at home!
I didn't know what I was going to do with the frame until I thought about the gigantic roll of wrapping paper I bought at Hobby Lobby several months ago.

Here is the frame in its original state.


Here is the frame with the harlequin wrapping paper I bought at Hobby Lobby.


And here is the frame on the wall along with two corners I bought at a yard sale today!

I don't like how I put the corners up, so I'm going to move them closer to the frame.  My husband is going to love the extra set of nail holes in the wall, and he will  probably threaten to put up his favorite jumper cables if I continue to pound holes in the wall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The entire project cost about $5.00 excluding the wrapping paper and the photo of my mom both of which I already had.

I love the harlequin paper and your mom's photo in it! It truly is picture perfect ;o)

Thank you so much for stopping by and your kind words about the art I do.
I posted a new post (had issues with my server, but I think it is working well now). This post has some of the art that I do as giveaways. Would love if you are able to take a look and enter if you would like. I draw any image entirely using any name.

Blessings & Aloha!

Great idea - and it looks perfect! Except I'm not a fan of the "corner" things, but the paper & frame is really nice.
