Upcycled Picture Frame Wreath

Guess what today is?!

It's Thrifty Chicks Challenge day!

If you are new to the Thrifty Chicks challenges, we are a group of blogging friends and we get together (virtually) once a month for an upcycling project challenge. Each month has a theme, this month our challenge is wreaths made with unique/upcycled materials.

And this month we have a new Thrifty Chicks member, welcome Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home! This is her first month linking up her Thrifty Chicks project with us!

For my wreath, I decided to upcycle an old picture frame!

I am still in "operation garage cleanout" mode so this picture frame came from a bin full of junk treasures stored in my garage!


Before I even planned out this project I found this cute chipboard "hello" sign at Hobby Lobby on sale for only $2.49. I got one not knowing what I would do with it.

And I had purchased a bunch of faux succulent plants at Michael's for a different project. I robbed some of these for my frame wreath 😉

How to make a wreath from a picture frame

I painted the picture frame black and then began adding the succulents.

I just used my hot glue gun to attach them!

I painted the hello sign pink and then attached that at an angle, also with hot glue.

A piece of jute twine for a hanger and we are all set!

This was such a simple project but I really love the end result!

I distressed the frame a little bit for some added interest.
