Etceteras: rustic twig frame


Here’s a fun and easy way to frame a favorite picture.


Gather small twigs and bunch them together to create a natural frame.


To make this frame I collected twigs and grouped them into four stacks.


I tied the twig bunches together a the ends with thread and then used a wide organza ribbon to wrap the corners.


The photo is secured with double-sided tape to another piece of the organza ribbon which is then glued to the back of the frame.


A sweet look for fall or to add a touch of rustic charm to your décor.
