Fast, easy and cheap DIY framed print

You know me, I can’t go past anything that is inspiring and motivating and when I saw this I knew it would look fantastic in my office. My office is a place where I spend most of my time each weekday, writing my blog posts, creating printables, or chatting away on facebook and instagram, so I like it to look pretty, but yet still be practical. I sell some great quotes in my shop, but this idea is a really fast, easy and cheap DIY framed print idea.

I purchased both these items from Kmart the frame was $4.00 and believe it or not the print I used was a cover of a $3.00 pack of 2 notebook set.

I lifted the spiral to easily remove the cover, I didn’t want to damage it as the width is the perfect size to fit in the frame.  The spiral holes are hidden by the edge of the frame.

I trimmed the top and bottom of the cover to fit into the frame. Trimming from both the top and bottom will ensure the text is center in the frame.

I did something similar. I created a wall of b/w photos in black frames along my stair wall. Using inspiration from Freedom’s frames I just typed a word or phrase in black on white paper, cut it to size and voila! My favourite is the word ‘smile’. Every time I use the stairs it makes me…….smile. These look good mixed in with all the photo’s.
