Shadow Box Frame Makeover

Hello friends! Happy Monday! I hope everyone's weekend was amazing. We spent a lot of time with family, took Ava on her first pony ride {she LOVED IT!} and the best part? We found a home! A home we want to buy! And live in forever! It is amazing, and I had that "this is the one!" feeling while walking through it. I cried when we walked out to the backyard, because it felt like our home. We've just gone through so many homes that weren't going to work out and lost a couple from offers not working out, too, so going through this one was just the best experience. Cross your fingers they accept our offer!

Today, I've got a home decor DIY that would go great in a new home, an old home, an apartment and everything in-between! I originally shared this post on Belle of the Kitchen. At Target {of course} I found some discounted shadow box frames. The one in the picture below is super similar to the ones I bought, except the inside part was NEON YELLOW. Not that I don't love me some neon, but it wouldn't work with my home's color scheme. I decided to buy the frames anyway, since they were so cheap, and do a little burlap makeover to make it an interchangeable picture frame. Read on to see how easy it was!




You only need a few supplies for this fun project: Shadow Box Frame, Burlap {or other fabric of choice}, hot glue gun and a clip of some sort. That's it!

Tip: Craft stores often have great picture frames sales. Get the store's app on your phone for coupons, too!


There are only 3 steps!
First, remove the back {the part with the stand} of the shadow box frame. Cut your piece of fabric to cover the front and fold over an inch or so over the back. Hot glue the fabric in place. It doesn't need to be pretty - no one's going to see the back! Second, hot glue your clip to the front of fabric. Third, attach your fave photo or printable quote to the clip, replace the backing, and you're done!!


I made 3 of these frames, since it was so easy. I loved the burlap fabric, but also thought a fun floral or stripe pattern would be cute with a fave printable or quote. You could frame kids' artwork or family photos, too! I love that they have the simplicity of a regular picture frame, but the dimension of a shadow box. I put photos of the most recent vacation we went on. These frames are awesome, because you can change out the photos whenever you want!
