Simple Homemade Christmas Gifts 3- Frames with a Personal Touch

You can’t go wrong with frames, everybody could use one. Every year we accumulate a bunch of photos (what with today’s digital technology, everybody just shoots, shoots & shoots), so there’s bound to be a lot of great photos that are frame-worthy. The great thing about making homemade frames is that you can make them as unique as their recipients.
Today I bring you some handpainted & handcrafted frames to inspire you to embark on this colorful and exciting Christmas gift making adventure.
Dots, stripes, whatever!!
