Sure. You could simply have your photo enlarged. But it’s when you lack the time or patience that you sometimes come up with a creative, original and more personal idea!
I got the vintage off-white (trimmed in gold) porcelain picture frame for $2 at NOVA a couple of months back. I had it hiding in the “when I finally do a mini-makeover to my bedroom” pile in my closet!
I chose the photo I wanted to use (photo of the hubs on our honeymoon), but when I put it in the frame I realized the photo needed to be 5×7, not 4×6. I remembered I had kept the unused pieces of an art project and figured it would be perfect to experiment with (for more on that click HERE).
I cut out a rectangle slightly larger than 5×7 and using white photo corners which I already had (purchased for a different project!) I centered the photo on the art scrap. I wasn’t sure about it until I slipped it back into the picture frame. But I love the little bit of the pale aqua art peaking out from behind! I think it helps to further enforce the room’s new color accent and I prefer my night table’s softer vignette.
Don’t have any art scraps hanging around? Try newspaper, wrapping or craft paper!
