Turn old picture frames into a terrarium.

Turn old picture frames into a terrarium.

Terrariums have come back BIG TIME, but there's no reason to spend BIG BUCKS on one. CJ shares his clever method of turning old picture frames into a new terrarium. Here's what we'll need to make one:

  • frames (4 - 5" x 7", 2 - 8" x 10" and 2 - 11" x 14")
  • fine grit sand paper
  • drill and screws (3/32 bit and #6 x 1/2" wood screws, suggested)
  • small corner brackets
  • 1/2" plywood
  • paper & pencil
  • wood filler
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • paint and paint brush

Head on over to Country Living for the entire tute. And you can find more of CJ's projects at theupcycler.com.
