Save money on picture frames by purchasing them at thrift
stores and garage sales. If a picture frame is made of wood, it can be
refinished or painted. You do not have to match the size of your pictures
perfectly to the picture frame or mat. You can just center them in the
frame on top of a mat board or piece of paper or fabric.
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- Craft stores sell picture
frames. They are always running sales. Or you can use one of their
40- 50% off coupons.
- Recycle the picture frames you
already own. If you get tired of a piece of artwork, replace it with
a different pictures.
- Buy your picture frames in
standard sizes, such as 16x20 (or less if you want a mat) for more versatility.
