First of all, I went to the 99cent store to see if they had any cute frames! And boy did they ever! I found these frame sets with a larger frame and a smaller frame for 99cents of course! That was an awesome deal! Anyway...I had been looking through the PBTeen catalog and saw these cute little frame sets, attached to a ribbon - original price $35 but on sale for $29. They were a little on the kiddish side - thus being shown in the PBTeen catalog - duh right?!? lol I figured I could put my own little spin on these using the little frames that I just aquired from the 99cent store! First, I removed the back piece from each of the frames.
Then I removed the glass and the backings from each of the frames. I used Valspar Antiquing Glaze to make these little white frames look more vintage. First you just brush it on... And then wipe it off...leaving a little bit of the color in all the nooks and crannies...
To make the ribbon backing - It takes about 3 yds of ribbon. Cut three pieces of ribbon about 32 inches long each. I made a loop at the top of each of the pieces, securing it with a couple staples.
Then I made three bows and glued one bow at the base of each of the loops using hot glue (this also covers up the staples).
Now you just need to attach the frames to the ribbons, making sure they are spaced out evenly. Once you have the frames attached to the ribbons (and you have pictures inside your frames - unlike mine which are naked on the wall right now!), hang your Vintage Ribbon Frames on the wall - I spaced mine out approximately 6 inches apart from the loop at the top.
Here's What the original looked like again from the catalog... And here's the finished project...
In all this set of 3 Vintage Ribbon Frames cost me approx $5!
