Taking something mundane and transforming it into something chic and stylish for my home is my passion! There’s nothing like picking up an old, tattered thrift store find and making it over to look fabulous. Today’s DIY project involves dollar store picture frames! Yes, those plain picture frames that seem simple and boring! Check out what they look like now!

Here are the picture frames in their original condition. You can find similar picture frames here– you can even paint these white, black, navy, etc. to match your decor!

The next step is to take out the pictures and all the backing material (cardboard, felt, etc.) Use the little bend-able clips or sliding clips to keep the glass in place.

Use some hot glue to create a little box with the picture frames. This is the hot glue gun that I use and love!

Fill the box with some dried moss and place a little plant in there! Mine is sitting pretty on my fireplace.
