This is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to make frames.

Don't you just love to display different photos, drawings, anything that inspires you? It's so easy to change your collection of lovely findings in this frame, just pick out your favorites and stick them in between the paint sticks.

You can also use it as small mood board and you're only a few steps aways from a fun frame,

so let's get started.

Supplies:


  • 16 Paint stir sticks

  •  4 rubber bands

Start by stacking 4 paint stick in piles of 4.

Place 2 piles at a right angle and place the rubber band on the top pile.

Pull the rubber band around the buttom pile and fasten it back to the top pile as shown on the photo.

Repeat this at each right angle to create a square.

Now you can lift the paint stick a bit and squeeze in your chosen photos or pictures.

Hang it on your wall and enjoy!

Some paint could spice up your frame and make your day more color-popping. Try layering your photos and inspiration between the different paint sticks. Enough said. So little effort but such fun result with inexpensive supplies.
