Dollar Tree Challenge DIY Picture Frames

3 Unique DIY Picture Frames Made for Less Than $5

We have our third episode of our Wulf Family Dollar Tree Challenge! Today’s theme is DIY Picture Frames. As usual, we had no idea what we would find, but the three of us (Mia, Nala, and Dinah) had $5.00 to spend to make our own unique frames. If you missed our first two episodes, keep scrolling because I added them below.

Nala’s (age 4) Picture Frame

Total Spent: $3.50

What She Bought

  • Frame
  • Gift Bag
  • Greeting Card
  • Glue

What Nala Made

We thought it’d be fun if Nala decorated an existing frame. She picked out a silver 5X7 frame and glued pompoms on it. We used the pompoms from our DIY Pencil Case Challenge. We cut the gift bag to fit her frame and used it as the backing, and used her greeting card as the photo.

What She Bought

  • Foam Board

What Mia Made

Mia was very clever and cut and measured foam board to create a frame from scratch. She cut out a frame from the front, and a solid backing. Wrapping both pieces in gift wrapping paper, she wedged the greeting card inside.

What Mom Made

I had the girls pick out a greeting card, and I cut out each character and framed them with construction paper squares. I cut out a hole in the back of the pillow to use as the frame.
