Rustic Frame

I found a couple picture frames from a church yard sale last fall, and new they needed a make over.

Here is a picture of the frames after I bought them.

I started out by painting them in Heirloom white.

After I painted them, I antiqued them a little by sanding them.

I really like how the frames turned out, but now onto the wreaths.

I started out with a pool noodle that I had purchased from the Dollar Store and a small piece of poster board.

Next, I rolled the poster board up, and glued one end of it into one end of the pool noodle.

Then, I glued the other end of the poster board in the other end of the pool noodle.
I also put some clear tape over the seam to reinforce it.

Next, wound some green rustic ribbon around the wreath and added some pretty flowers. 

Rustic Wreath

To finish the frame, I measured the poster that was inside the frame and cut some weather wood paper the same size and stapled the paper in the frame and added the wreath.

Here is another version with a different wreath:

  1. This is gorgeous! Omgosh, I love it! I can't believe such a beautiful piece of decor came from an old frame and pool noodle. Fantastic makeover!

  2. That is a great idea. I thought that was real wood planking in the frame.

  3. Brenda, This is such an awesome project! Love it. Pinned too.

  4. I love this! The frame makeover looks great and your wreath is lovely. Thanks for sharing at Brag About It. We'll be featuring your rustic frame at the next party.

  5. Very cute! I love heirloom white. Creative idea for the wreaths too! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  6. I have never made a wreath with a pool noodle but thanks to you I now know how to connect the ends. Love the rustic wood behind the wreath. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

  7. I too thought was real wood in frame, nice look. Will be looking for that wood look paper next time at HL or Michaels. Great idea making wreath with pool noodle, certainly cost effective. Love that green rustic ribbon, very nice texture. So interesting how many cost saving tips can be picked up on blogs, gotta' love it. Enjoy your weekend
