Day #12: How to Fallify a Frame

Hey everyone,

It’s day #12 in the 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor series.

I’m late posting tonight because I finally found out how to change my blog background in WordPress and have been trying out way too many backgrounds.

Time to move on for now though.

Today’s topic:

How to “fall-i-fy” a basic picture frame.

Here is my simple tutorial.

Start with a typical frame you have around your house and find a “fall-ish” frame (maybe even a frame that is a fall-ish color) at an inexpensive place, such as the thrift store or Dollar Store.  Take the back and the glass out of the fall frame.

Next combine the two by adding the double-sided foam mounting tape (you can pick some up at any craft store, or even Walmart).

….and now your frame has been “fall-i-fied”.

Oh so easy!

And this way, I can easily change it back at the end of the season.


  1. What a cool idea – that way we don’t have to actually take the photo out of the frame! Only works if the original frame is really big, though.

    • I thought about that. Then I started brainstorming about all the different sizes of frames that would fit together. You’re right though, if you had a super small frame to start with, it may not work.

  2. That is one cute frame! Love the word Fallify too! But….what caught my eye were those turkey feathers in the vase! It all looks great together!

    • Thanks Danni! It probably sounds weird, but I wanted to do a lot of decorating with feather’s this fall, so I hit the local taxidermist and friend’s with hunting husbands and now I have them all over my house. lol I may have over-done it a little.

      Have a great Saturday!

  3. This is very clever and crafty – I gotta keep my eye out for those frames at GW and SA – thanks for sharing!

  4. Sweet job! Thanks so much for linking up to Its a Party.

    Have a great weekend xox

  5. Hi Katie, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (, and I’m visiting from the Pinteresting Party.

    This looks beautiful! And it looks easy enough to do, even for the craftily challenged like me.

    Anyway, thanks for posting this. I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…

  6. Looks perfect for the season!
