DIY Holiday Projects that Repurpose Picture Frames by Cindy Carusone

DIY Holiday projects hold a special place in my heart. Why do you ask? Well, as we all know, the Holidays can be a very stressful time, but Retail Therapy can always make it a little better, especially if you like to shop! It also makes for great bonding time with my daughters. We get together and have DIY Christmas parties; memories to last a lifetime and it will not empty your wallet!

Goodwill Stores are the best way to find cool ideas and material for your DIY holiday projects. One of my favorites is the endless uses of picture frames. You can decorate for your home or also to give as one of a kind Holiday gift. It’s as easy as 1,2,3, and you can find all the items at a Goodwill Store. I love to use them and recycling the frames saves materials from being dumped in a landfill.
