We take so many photos these days that we don't have enough frames to put them in. As a result, our pictures get stashed away never to be seen again. Reawaken them and save money by creating your own photo frame using recycled material.

While you're at it, why not give your frame a theme? Turn it into an old fashioned television set.

Time: 30 minutes (plus drying time)
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's
