Hope you guys are having a great weekend!! I wanted to show you all a quick, cheap and so chic way to mat your own photos. I used this method with fabric for my photo wall but I thought I would change it up a bit and use burlap for this demo... yeah:)
Your first step will be to take the backing off of your frame. This method is great for wall frames because the back is a bit messy but if you are doing a table frame you may want to clean your edges up a bit more than I did. Lay your backing on your fabric.
Cut around your backing leaving about 1/2" all around.
Use your hot glue gun to attach two opposite sides first.
Now attach your other sides using the hot glue and you are ready for your photo.
I like to change my photos out often so this step makes that very simple. Just use photo safe tape and add a few pieces to the back of your photo.
Find the center of your fabric covered backing and place the picture down on that... I use the old "eyeball" method to find center.
Replace your glass and add your newly matted picture and you are finished. With just a few steps and even less dollars we have taken this...
Hope you guys like it! These steps are a great way to use those unwanted frames you have hiding out and create several that coordinate to form a fun, custom photo wall. Get creative!!
Also, for those of you that asked what blue I used on the crackle frame...
