DIY Boho Frame

I have been loving the look of the Boho Twist Frame at Urban Outfitters for a while now, but I could never justify paying the price for recycled paper! I knew that I could re-create the piece for much less and the project ended up being so simple. I had most of the materials lying around the house so my cost was $2.00 (I bought the embroidery thread at the dollar store), which makes my version $17.00 less than the frame for sale! 

  • frame
  • embroidery thread
  • scissors 
  • magazine/newspaper pages
  • glue-gun 
1. Cut magazine/ newspaper pages into strips
2. Start to roll the pages into long cylinders (you may need to use tape for the paper to stay in place)
3. Start rolling and twisting the embroidery thread around the long rolled up paper (use tape if necessary)
4. Starting on the outside of the frame, glue down the thread covered paper rolls 
5. Continue until entire frame is covered
