Picture Frames

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.

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on picture frames.


- 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.
