Framing Creative Reuse

With the photo frame sale on Saturday, you might be asking yourself what you could do with the photo frames that you buy. Here are some easy and money saving ideas for you and your family to enjoy:

The first idea is a photo frame tray that was found on Design*Sponge! All you need is a picture frame, two handles, and something colorful to put inside. This tray is perfect to put your breakfast, lunch and dinner on and it’s also perfect for doing all sorts of work on it!

If you are a pet lover, here is something that will save you a little money. With a shadow box picture frame and four napkin rings, you can construct a raised dog feeder! The idea and instructions for this dog feeder came from

We all know that photo frames make great wall decorations, but you can also re purpose photo frames to create different wall decorations. You can create a message or photo board by taking out the glass and replacing it with a chalkboard, cork board, or a dry erase board. You can see the examples on this page here and here

Finally, you can paint a number of old picture frames or cover them in fabric and you have an instant wall decoration! These ideas came from and here!
