I got this picture frame at goodwill for a different craft that didn't go as planned. I wanted to use it as a regular picture frame, but as you can see it's majorly dirty!
Enter: yarn! I got this one at Michael's and specifically chose it because it changes color
With a glue gun I glued the yarn into the corner of the frame
Then I started wrapping the yarn around the frame
Just keep going, making sure to tighten the yarn as you go
After an hour of wrapping it will look like this:
Since I had so much left over yarn I wanted to add some pom-poms to the frame
Before you start leave about 8 inches of yarn on the side, for a later step.
Then wrap the yarn around 3 fingers. This is a mini pom-pom so I wrapped it around 20-25 times
Carefully remove the wrap from your fingers and place it on the pre-cut piece of yarn from before
Then tie a tight not, so it looked like this:
Stick a sharp scissor through the loops and cut!
Do the other side the same way
Trim it so it's even and you will have mini pom-pom!
I made two more, that were bigger - wrapping it 40-45 times instead of 20.
Then I glued them in the corners with a glue gun, used scrapbook paper for the background, pasted the picture and presto! Picture frame!!
It even looks legit among my other frames...WIN!
