Dollar Store Picture Frame Makeover

I shop a lot at dollar stores. I always tell myself that I am only going to buy a couple of items, but then I end up leaving the store with a basket full of $1 goodies. On one of those shopping trips I bought a plain picture frame that I did not need, so I decided to give it a fun and girly makeover to match some projects I made earlier.

Check out the tutorial below.


  • Picture Frame
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • White Chalk Paint
  • Chipboard Letters
  • Xacto Knife or Scissors
  • Paint Brush
  • Glue
