Upcycle an old scarf into artwork

We had an old empty picture frame sitting at home. The frame was already fitted with mounting and board, all I needed was something to put inside.

I decided to visit the local Vinnie's (a second hand clothing store in Australia) to find a scarf or piece of material that I could put inside the frame. I snapped up an old pink and blue silk scarf for $2. The material was wrapped around the board and secured with old cork board pins that I had laying around not being used.

This project could easily be put together with any type of frame. Many second hand stores, like Vinnie's, have old picture frames with matting that could be upcycled in a similar way to add affordable artwork to brighten the home. A fun rainy day project.

  1. Such a creative and fun idea! Nice art for nearly nothing. And its unique too.

  2. This might work if you are not already sick of the design from wearing it 5 years in a row :)
