About a year ago I picked up some awesome oval frames for $1 each, but couldn’t find any pictures I liked to fit them (the the openings are an odd size). While checking out the DYI section of Pinterest I stumbled upon this Monogram Frame tutorial, and was inspired.
List of items you’ll need
- A Frame
- Wooden Letters I used 9.5″ ones but you should use ones that fit your frame
- Metallic Spray Paint (I used Rust-Oleum)
- Spray Paint for your Frame
- 1/2 yard Fabric
- Screwdriver or butter knife depending on how your frame is setup
First I took my frame apart and removed the glass.
Next I cut out 4 pieces muslin to fit over the picture. 2 for each frame. You might only need 1 piece per frame if your fabric covers a little better. My original picture was glued to frame back and wasn’t coming off so to completely cover the image I needed 2 pieces.
Than I glue the two fabric pieces to the original picture. I put the mat and letter on top after it dried just to make sure everything looked ok.
Finally I painted the frame, matting, and letters using the spray paint. After everything was dry I glued the letters to the fabric and reassembled the frame.
