The most inexpensive way is to make a frame fromStrong cardboard. Determine the size of the future product. On a sheet of cardboard, draw a rectangle of the desired height and width. In the middle, make a photo box. The cardboard frame should not be too narrow.
Cut out the cardboard blank and wrapDecorative fabric - velvet, taffeta or dense cotton. The color and pattern of the fabric is chosen according to the interior and character of the photo. For example, children's photos and drawings can be framed with a funny printed or checkered fabric, for a romantic photo a nice plush or satin will do. To make the frame a three-dimensional, between the cardboard and fabric, lay pieces of sintepon.
Cut out the workpiece from the fabric a little more than itselfFrame, in the corners make notches. Tighten the fabric tightly and attach it with a glue gun. Seams can be covered with braid or lace. On the fabric attach beads, rhinestones or small items - seashells, dried flowers, products made of mastic. From the paper, cut out the rectangle to the size of the photo or picture and attach it to the back of the frame so that the pocket that was opened from the top turns out. Insert a photo into it. In order to hang the frame on the wall, glue the finished metal loop at the top of it.
Very beautiful look frames from the finishedCeiling baguette. This light material is well cut and can be used for bordering paintings, reproductions and photographs. Select the desired size and cut off pieces of appropriate length from the ceiling baguette. Make a cut at an angle of 45 degrees. Fold the frame from the baguette and fix it with superglue. The gaps can be filled with a sealant, and then sand the corners with a sandpaper to smoothness.

You can imitate antique silver, gold or bronze of different shades. Such a framework will perfectly fit into any interior - from the classical to the avant-garde.
