DIY Picture Crafts

Another quick DIY craft post today to show you a cheap and easy way to make pictures for your walls using old birthday cards and postcards. I always keep really nice cards and other pictures in a plastic wallet, then every now and then I’ll go through it and pick one or two out to make into pictures.

I’ve chosen a Winnie-The-Pooh card as I love him and the colours will go nicely in the spare room that we’ve just decorated.

I’ve also chosen a girly card about shoes and handbags, this one is going to go next to my dressing table in the bedroom.

I’ve used glass clip frames that measure 7×5 inches, but they’re available in loads of sizes going right up to poster size. The great thing about these clip frames is that you can easily take them apart and change the picture if you get bored of it. You can use them for photos too, how about using a big one and creating a collage?

To take them apart you just pull of the clips, slide the glass off the front, and insert your picture. Then just re-attach the metal clips. It’s really easy!

Above is a selection of other cards that I have in my collection all ready to make into pictures, I think my favourite is the sleeping cat. I also have a collection of beautiful old Christmas cards, I’m going to put some into clip frames and display them in December.

These DIY pictures would make great presents, and they just cost a few pounds each to make.

I bought my clip frames from IKEA but they only seem to do really big ones at the moment. The 7×5 inch ones are available from Amazon, priced at £19.99 for a pack of 6 (that’s just £3.33 each).

If you like picture crafts you might want to take a look at the train ticket picture that I made a couple of months ago.

  1. What a lovely idea. I always keep old cards because I’m a bit sentimental like that, but this is also a nice way to make use of them. Thanks for sharing 🙂 Danielle x
