This little project is a great inspiration and would be a nice upcycle project for frames found at thrifts hopes, garage sales or even dollar type stores! You could glam up the frame even more by gluing rhinestone gems around it either here and there or in a solid pattern. Or embellish with washi tape in patterns too. A nice touch to any dinner party and a super project!
