Repurposed & Vintage Book Wall Art

To highlight some of my special family pictures I created unique picture frames from vintage book covers. A DIY perfect for any room or space as a way to add interest and texture to a wall.

Vanessa Brunner added this to DIY: Creative Vintage Book Cover Frames
This DIY, which was done for Papernstitch, will bring a unique vintage touch to any room. The list of materials is short and sweet: 1. Vintage books that you won't mind cutting up. 2. Photographs3. Metal-edge ruler4. X-acto knife5. Firmer chisel or similar tool6. Tacky glue and binder clips7. Masking tape
Lindsey M. Roberts added this to 6 Easy Ways to Skillfully Hang Your Art
An art grouping like this may not have the lasting power of framed art, but it wins prizes for creativity.
