When it comes to putting old t-shirts to good use, the creative possibilities are truly endless. Once you cut some flowers out of a bright t-shirt, you're halfway through making this Scrap Happy DIY Picture Frame from I Love to Create. The fabric blooms that give this frame its tropical flavor are a cinch to make and they go perfectly with beach photos. Learn how to make a photo frame by following this tutorial, and you can make your living space seem sunny all year.


Scrap Happy DIY Picture Frame



  • Aleene's® Fabric Fusion® Permanent Fabric Adhesive
  • Aleene's® Tacky Line Runner™
  • T-shirt scraps – various colors
  • Vacation photo
  • Fabric scissors
  • Picture frame
  • Circular object – 2.5” in diameter (for cutting template)


  1. Cut a series of circles from T-shirt scraps, using circular object as a template. Cut all of the same color or a variety of colors to add vibrant highlights to the frame.
  2. Select one of the fabric circles, fold it in half, then fold in half again, Cut a scalloped edge along the arched edge to turn the folded fabric into a heart shape.
  3. Unfold the piece of fabric (it should slightly resemble a four-leafed clover) and squeeze a small amount of fabric glue in the center. Fold it in half with the edges slightly askew (so the petals are not exactly aligned) and pinch together.
  4. Apply a small dab of glue along the folded edge and fold in half again to create a blossom. Pinch the end and separate the petals; let dry.
  5. Repeat steps to create desired number of petals.
  6. Use the Tacky Line Runner to apply double-stick adhesive tape to the front of frame, being careful not to touch adhesive.
  7. One by one, press blossoms onto frame, angling and overlapping them to create desired look. Fill entire frame with petals.
  8. Add vacation photo and display in your favorite spot!
