I absolutely love this upcycled frame project from Wendy at Craft Jr! When Wendy saw a $200 card holder from Pottery Barn, she knew it was something her kids could make for a fraction of the price using an old frame.

Lauren from The Endearing Home almost purchased a beautiful antique silver frame from West Elm. Almost… before she realized she had several old frames in her garage that could easily be refabbed.

I am loving how Lauren totally nailed the look with items she already had! Yay for not one but TWO great upcycles!

Rebecca first scored a large frame at a thrift store and then found a creative way to replicate the beautifully detailed trim of her Pottery Barn inspiration. What a wonderful way to reflect on and display all God’s blessings!
