Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Scrapbook Paper, Picture Frame
Since moving to North Carolina I’ve just wanted to redo everything in the house with a more beach-y/nautical vibe. I’ve already posted my sofa table makeover and side table makeover and most recent the beast of an entertainment center I had.
I decided I didn’t want to use any of the pictures I already had in the house. They all had a more Tuscany feel and I’ve had them forever. While browsing my parents shed I found these frames my mom got at the Goodwill for $3.50 each.
She’s obsessed with buying things that are a good deal even if she doesn’t need them.
I’m so glad she did because as soon as I saw them I feel in love. I didn’t know what I was going to do with them yet. That’s until… I found these great packs of scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby. I’ve been wanting to make inexpensive art for the walls and these packs of paper are going to be perfect for that.
The packs of paper were $20.00 each kinda expensive but I have lots of plans for them. I was also able to use my “handy dandy” 40% off coupon so that made a big difference.
Step 1 – Prep Frame
I took out the old pictures that were in the frames and wiped the frames down with a baby wipe. Gotta love those baby wipes they work for everything!
Step 2 – Cut Your Scrapbook Paper
I decided I wanted to use the lobster pictures for these frames. I thought they looked so quirky and fit the coastal theme I was going for.
I laid one of the pictures over top of the scrapbook paper and traced it out with a pencil. Then I cut the sides off.
Step 3 – Finishing Touches
Then I added the scrapbook paper to the frames and voila all done. This was one of the easiest projects I’ve worked on.
I’m so excited how my lobster frames turned out. I love looking at them when I pass in the hallway. Now it’s time to start painting and changing up all the old pictures in the house now. I’ll keep you posted with all the ideas I come up with.
These are some of the other great prints that was in the pack too. I think their were a total of 20 images in this pack. I wish I could have taken pictures of all of them!!
Next set of pictures on the agenda is the living room!!
