Versatile Photo Frame

I think just about everyone on Pinterest has seen this pin of a cute frame with a bulldog clip, for both cute display and an easy way to swap out pictures as your kids grow.  I've been wanting to do this for a while, and finally got all the goodies to make it happen at a Pinterest party.  I am VERY happy with how mine turned out!

  • Frame, with or without a back
  • Paint, preferably in a bright color
  • Scrapbook paper, big enough to fill your frame
  • Bulldog clip
  • Hot glue gun
  1. Remove glass, matting, etc. from frame.
  2. Paint frame and let dry.  If desired, scuff up painted frame a little to add some texture and a worn appearance.  If you zoom in on my pic, you can see where I left it a bit streaky in spots and scratched up a bit in others.
  3. Cut scrapbook paper to fit.  Glue to frame backing.
  4. Hot glue bulldog clip, either directly to glass or to the scrapbook paper if you aren't using glass in your frame.
  5. Swap pictures out all year long!
