Picture Frame Tray DIY Instructions
Take apart the frame and remove the old photo and lift up the mat backings. Give the glass a good cleaning. Discard the photo or hang onto it for another paper project.
Using your pinking shears, cut a piece of fabric just larger than the glass and set it aside.
Measure the sides of the frame where you want to put the handles and drill the pilot holes.
Screw the handles to both sides of the frame.
To finish, lay the fabric on top and secure the mat backings.
