Decoupage plus crocheting = upcycled picture and frame


As I have found out, upcycling is a fascinating thing. I have upcycled and decoupaged several glass bottles and even made couple of handmade lamps. Now I have used an old tile and a piece of card board to make a frame and a picture for my kitchen.

Here is my decoupage how to for it.

I had an old ceramic tile to start with.

I painted it using acrylic paint and a dish washing sponge. I let it dry. I had an old book with a pretty picture in it. So, I decoupaged the tile, used glue and transparent polish. Then, I applied some green acrylic paint to the edges of the tile around the picture. That was the decoupage part of upcycling.

Now, I have made a frame for the tile. I used a piece of card board and some old think yarn.

I just crocheted it over with the yarn. I have still one thing left. I have to make the card board back for the frame to insert the tile into it and I have to crochet the rope for the frame. You have already seen how this crocheting plus decoupage how to resulted in a nice picture.
