"Shabby Chic" Upcycled Photo Frame

*10% of any item sold will be donated to SHARE in memory of McKinley Rose. Donations will be made around the 25th of every month.

This was truly a labor of love! I worked on it for several hours, hand stitching all the little rosettes and cotton "ruffles" that make this little photo frame so sweet! 

A beautiful little photo frame just perfect for a shelf or bedside table! This frame features 4 hand sewn ribbon rosettes and "ruffles" and was upcycled from an old t shirt, cardboard packaging and extra bits and pieces of fiber fill! You'd never know looking at this now that it was created from items that would have just been tossed away! Add your own special photo and display this pretty little frame on a shelf or bedside table. Its one of a kind!

This frame is approximately 5" X 5" overall, the opening is about 2.25" X 2.5" and has a soft plastic cover to protect your photo from dust and scratches. The photo displayed in the frame was a 4" X 6" and cut down to 3" wide X 3.5" tall.

A little closer to show detail....

And this one just for process of making it!

  1. This is such a clever use of recycled materials... you'd never know it. The ruffles make a perfect frame. We love your creative projects ! Now we're off to look at your amazing photographs....

  2. Thank you so much! There will be more to come as I'm finding I enjoy the art of repurposing so much more than purchasing all new materials! I'm glad you stopped by! ;o)
