The look of custom fabric photo mats: the LAZY way
Apr 292014
 

You know those fabric covered photo mats? Well, this is a way to achieve that same look without spending much money at all. I had two frames that I wanted to fill with pictures of Sophia in the water. But to just slip the pictures in the frame and call it a day would be… well, boring! And I like to personalize everything.

So I had an idea. I would incorporate some pretty fabric around the photos. Fabric that would complement the color scheme of the room. And I did find the perfect fabric at Joann Fabrics. This lovely light blue and taupe floral fabric is a perfect color palette for our hallway bathroom, which is where these frames are headed.

    • Adhere the photo to the fabric with Modge Podge. Ensure that the photo is smaller than the fabric so the fabric can be seen around the photo.

This was an easy and fun way to bring a little color and personality to plain, white frames. How cute would these be in a playroom with bright fabric! I love sprucing up picture frames and creating easy, do-it-yourself artwork for my walls. Check out this DIY bird artwork and this DIY fabric picture frame.
