To Buy or DIY Baby Picture Frames – Short Practical Guide

diy, picture frames

For the longest time, buying baby picture frames meant looking for something pink or blue. Maybe perhaps finding a theme that might in some way be related to your child. That has changed recently, as you can find just about anything you would like to have on a frame.

Buy or DIY Picture Frames?

Some people who are handy with wood, paint and other crafting tools like to make them on their own. Others like to shop, hoping to find the perfect frame. However, personalized and special frames for pictures of your children are a lot closer than you might think.

picture frames, diy

Let’s say that you want to make your own baby picture frames. All you have to do is find a plain frame in the right color. If you can’t find it anywhere, look in your local craft stores. They usually have something for just about everyone. You can then decide what you want to do with your baby picture frames. Check out your local thrift stores. Frames are usually found in many different types, shapes, sizes and colors of frames.

If you like to paint, you can add your own design if you wish. To simplify your design, you can find many great things you can simply attach to the frame with a bit of glue. You can add a theme or even your child’s name. You can do both if you wish. Let your imagination guide you.

Places to Buy Frames

If you feel you don’t have the talent or the time to make your own baby picture frames, don’t worry, there are many great ones out there now. If you look around online, you can find places that sell things you may never have imagined. Some online vendors may even customize any frame you want (usually for a nominal fee). Also, they will then mail them out to you in a secure package to minimize breakage during shipping. These can be personalized with almost anything you wish, and don’t have to cost a lot of money either.

There are also a number of arts and crafts stores located throughout the U.S.

Be Safe When Choosing Picture Frames

There is one thing you should keep in mind if you are making or buying your own baby picture frames. Even though many will go on the wall and little hands will never touch them, some are placed on nightstands or other places that are in reach.

If this is the case for the frame you are going to buy, make sure they do not have small pieces that can come off and be a choking hazard. Therefore, sure that the paint is safe if your child were to put the frame in their mouth. Children under the age of two often explore the world with their mouth, so keep that in mind as you choose.

I certainly hope that this helps! Do you have a picture frame that you created from scratch or one that you may have rehabbed that you would like to share? We would love to see it and add it to the post.
