Funky Photo Frames

 

This is a craft project where you can recycle glass jars into funky photo frames. All you need are a few clean jars and some photographs of your family or friends.

 

 

You will need:

Empty jars with lids - wash clean and dry them
Ruler
Pair of scissors

 

Here's how:

1




Measure how tall your jar is. If needed, use a pair of scissors to trim the height of your photo to fit the jar.

2



Roll up the photo slightly and slide it into the jar so that the photo will be right-side-up when the jar is upside-down.

Poke it into place with your fingers or the eraser end of a pencil.

3




Turn the jar upside down and display your simple thrifty genius in a place of honour on your bedroom desk or bookshelf.

 

Bottles work just as well as jars, but they’re a little trickier. The photo won’t be able to unroll any further than the narrowest part of the bottle. There two ways to deal with that: Pick a photo that looks good when it’s only a 2cm wide, or make your photo no taller than the widest part of the bottle. To use a bottle, roll up your photo tight enough to slip through the opening of the bottle. Slip the photo in right-side-up and maneuver it into place using the eraser end of a pencil.
