Hey y’all! It’s me again with another great thrift store makeover idea! These are my absolute favorite kind of craft projects. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just getting started with your new hobby or maybe you just like to make something every once in a while. Either way, starting with a picture frame is a sure way to get yourself a confidence boost in the creative arena.
Here are the supplies you will need to recreate your own thrift store frame makeover.
I will link over to my fave crafting supplies on Amazon.
- Thrift store frame
- Jumbo Popsicle Sticks
- Salt Shaker or small glass jar
- Small succulent
- Hot Glue
- Spanish Moss
Time needed: 20 minutes.
- Paint the Frame
Begin by painting your picture frame to suit your own personal taste. I used Mineral by Waverly, which can be found at Walmart. I loved the neutrality of the grey and how it brought out all the pretty details of the frame.
- Prep the Background
This is where the popsicle sticks come in to play. I figured out how many I needed to fill my 5x7 photo space, painted them white (I think they resemble shiplap) and glued them to the back of the frame.
- Attach Salt Shaker
In this step you’re simply going to attach your shaker or small bottle with a combination of hot glue and e6000. This is a magical blend of adhesives that truly would last longer than the frame itself., however it beats broken glass so I think it is necessary in this case.
I plated my faux succulent in some Spanish moss from the Dollar Tree but now I’m thinking this would make a great bud vase with a tiny bit of water.
It’s literally that easy! With a few basic supplies and 4 easy steps you have a functional and oh-so-cute bud vase from a thrift store frame!
