Frames can be incorporated into interior design in many different ways. However you decide to use frames in your home, it can be a fun project to DIY! Cheap is good, and these do-it-yourself picture frames are about as inexpensive as they come, and as easy as they are cheap.
Lately I’ve been having this huge urge to decorate the house. This is big news. I do not decorate.
Don't limit your art options to what can fit inside a standard frame -- you can go beyond the 8"x10" without going broke. Sometimes when you stumble upon art that comes in a big package, you shrink from the purchase, for fear that the framing will cost more than the art.

How to Frame a Large Picture: Supersize and Put Behind Plexiglass Blogger Mercie Ghimire of A Lovely Evening turned a 2"x4" inch mini Instax photo print into a giant 3'x5' print in her living room. She worked with a local framer and had them create a high-res scan of the photograph and then asked them to glue the enlarged photo on 1/4" thick gator board and glue 1/8" plexiglass on top of that. So the photo is free-floating -- there is no actual frame.

I love the way the cherry trees outside my building bloom cheerfully each Spring. I wanted to bring the beauty of those cherry blossoms indoors so I made some out of tissue paper and to make them even more special I added LEDs These pretty lights are inexpensive and easy to make. They are made mostly from material found at a dollar store. You can make several branches for a spray of cherry blossoms to decorate your room.

I am not a crafter. Noooo, sirree. I like making odds and ends, but I can assure you that I am not a frills-and-lace, decoupage-crazy, sewing machine addict that spends her spare time bedazzling jumpers and darning clog socks. (If you happen to be a decoupage-crazy sock-darner, I mean no insult.
