Wall Art Made So Simple

Recycled Magazine Picture Frame:

Before you recycle your old magazines, be sure to tear out several pages to create a recycled picture frame!  You will need a picture frame with a wide border (can be recycled from your home or found in a craft store), magazine pages, a wooden skewer, and a hot glue gun.  Once you have your magazine pages, take the wooden skewer, place it at the edge of the magazine page (starting with the longer side), and begin tightly rolling the magazine page around the skewer.  Hot glue the edge to create a nice tubular look.  Starting from the outer edge of the picture frame, hot glue the "magazine page tube" to the picture frame.  You may be creative with your design.  Completely fill the picture frame with the recycled magazine pages and enjoy!

  1. In the early sixties I did this and glued them onto a large ice cream container. Then cut 2 inch pieces of covered wire and scalloped that in every other hole. Used it as a trash can in my teenage girls room. I smiled when I saw your frames.
