Aside from showcasing pictures and photos, frames are perfect for pulling together a chic decor. How you use them, hang them, set them up together and the colors, shapes and sizes you use all help create a special decor. Check out our ideas for frames!

Decor ideas with original frames

1. Displaying photos

While frames have always displayed photos, there are different ways you can do it. Here are two different ideas to try.

Take an old or distressed wooden frame and put an old photo in it. This can be a very vintage decor element that you can place in your home entrance or around your headboard in your bedroom.

Or how about this next idea? Hang photos with little clips in your frames. This is perfect for teenage bedrooms. Nail the decor with three different colored frames.

2. Frame objects

You can also use frames to highlight different objects – frame feathers, leaves, fabrics, etc. Framed objects look beautiful in any room.

3. Key holder

Remember that frame with broken glass? Give it a second life. Hang the frame on a wall and attach some hooks to the inner edge. It can be the perfect key holder – you’ll never leave your keys at home again.

4. Desk organizer

Have you seen anything more creative? You can make fabric pockets in different sizes to fit into the frame and enjoy the perfect desk assistant. We love the idea here at DecorTips.

5. Keep your jewelry organized

You can also opt to lean your frames against the wall or on a shelf or piece of furniture. Skip the drilling and hammering process to create more flexible decor that you can change whenever you want.

4. Framing nothing

Yes, you read that right. Use a set of frames with different shapes and paint them the same color or use different colors to accentuate the surrounding decor. Hang them up on your wall with nothing inside. Empty frames look beautiful! They’re great for stairways or bathrooms.

Ideas for your little ones
