Frames without glass are a dime a dozen at thrift stores and there's even a chance you have one or two in your own home that have been stuffed into storage. Forget having glass re-cut for them, turn them into a cute photo display instead. It's perfect for seasonal photos or even love notes to your sweetie. Awwww. Here's how:

Our friends over at Craft tipped us off to this great project found at Sweet Peach. They've spray painted a few plain wooden frames and wrapped them with twine. If you're not into something that feels so rustic, you could consider using a more formal string or ribbon, or even spray painting twine.

The final look allows you to rotate photos throughout the year, which can be a nice change of pace from only seeing them on your Facebook page. It's easy to print a few snapshots out instead of making every photo placed in your home a frame worthy commitment.
