Want to display your favourite photos at home in a beautifully unique way? This gorgeous DIY picture frame is the perfect solution. It looks super expensive yet it’s as easy as and it’s so cheap to do!
You only need to collect twigs from your backyard or neighbourhood for this project. In fact, we don’t recommend buying treated twigs from the craft store because real ones, well, give the most authentic look.
Look for dead, brown twigs instead of the green ones and check to make sure there are no insects or signs of decay. After collecting, rinse them and let dry before proceeding to the actual project.
Now you can buy a simple wooden craft frame for your base, but it would be better if you can find an old or secondhand picture frame. In other words this project is also perfect for giving old, boring picture frames a new look!
This idea is not just for displaying family photos, it’s also great for displaying artwork or as a wedding decoration!
