You don't have to start from scratch to make a perfectly unique and beautiful frame. With paint, fabric, wire, beads, paper, costume jewelry, or other found objects, any existing frame can become a blank canvas to decorate and display your creativity. Start with a new one purchased from a craft store, or reclaim a castaway from a yard sale. The 45 illustrated projects here range from classic and elegant to wild and witty, but they're all uncomplicated and fun. An assemblage of driftwood and seashells makes a wonderful accent for a family snapshot on the beach. Glue on ceramic shards for a colorful no-fuss mosaic. Go industrial with hardware supplies: nuts, bolts, and metal screen make cool decorative elements. And, don't forget the kids: they'll have a delightful time putting an imaginative border on a painted blackboard frame surface. Whatever your décor, whatever your taste, you'll find a clever idea.
