DIY Springtime Photo Frames

Remember a few weeks ago I shared with y’all my great craft flower deal from Target?

DIY painted polka dot napkins and Spring table decor. Cost saving tips...I still can’t believe that four flowers were only 50 cents 🙂 I used them on my Spring table found here.

I wanted to make Easter gifts and decided to create photo frames incorporating more of the colorful craft flowers. I went to Michael’s Crafts to find photo frames that I could paint. I took Honey Bee with me so that he could use a separate 50% off coupon at checkout 🙂

I found MDF frames that were perfect. The frame holds a 4×6 photo and there is extra space for flower placement. They were $4.99 each minus the coupon – so a total of $5.00 for both. The flat overlay frames were in my craft stash…they were originally .99 cents at Hobby Lobby and I used 40% off coupons to purchase those.
