This easy wall art from old wood frame is a simple project that can be made from any an old frame and some scrap fabric of your choice.
This old beat up picture frame is just one of many that I have stashed in my closet that I had picked up at Goodwill one time or another.
I’m sorry that I don’t have step by step pictures for this tutorial, sometimes I get in a hurry and before I know it I am done with the project and forgot to take pictures. 😉 But this is a really easy project and I will walk you through the steps so you shouldn’t have any problem making one yourself if you chose.

Diy Wall Art From Old Wood Frame
For starters I took the glass and backing off the wood frame, then I gave it a quick sanding. Then I painted the frame blue (one of my fav colors). Once it was dry I sanded the frame to make it look a little bit worn.
After the sanding I used my black ink pad and lightly rubbed it across the edges of the frame. I then lightly dry brushed a little grey acrylic paint on the frame.
Next I took the cardboard insert that was in the picture frame and applied Mod Podge(affiliate) to the back of the cardboard. I then laid my zebra stripe material on top of the cardboard, and smoothed it out. Then I applied some more Mod Podge to the center of the zebra print fabric for my piece of scrap burlap.
The cross that I used in this easy wall art from old wood frame was a wooden cross that I had painted using the faux leather technique that I learned recently.
I glued the cross on top of the scrap burlap with a dap of gorilla glue(affiliate), and attached a turquoise colored jewel with gorilla glue.
The flower was made by twisting and winding a scrap piece of material. I used hot glue to attach the flower to the frame.
That’s it for this easy wall art from old wood frame.
