Updated: This idea came to me when I was reading about laminated wood products. I decided to try it out using cardboard and craft glue and came up with a very strong but very light wood substitute.

I bought a nice wooden frame with a colander of apples in it for .50 a couple of years back. Today I finally had the time to fix it up properly by adding ribbon, buttons, fabric scraps, and an old glove. It turned out really nice.

When making a pet photo frame, instead of using "real" dog or cat treats, try making them out of polymer clay. Pets then will not attempt to eat the frames

Just cut a hole out of the middle with an exacto knife and paint the lid green. I hot glued on some red sequins for the holly berries and used fabric paint for the 2005. I made the bow out of red velvet. I used a twistie tie for the hanger on the back.

To add pizzazz to your pictures, add something extra to them as I have done with this one. I picked this cute dog frame up on clearance for $1.00. Then, I took a piece of brown textured scrapbook paper placed it behind a slightly turned picture of my dog, Gabe. Then I printed out this quote by M. Siegal, "Acquiring a dog may be the only opportunity a human has to choose a relative." It took less than 5 minutes and didn't require fancy equipment or skills: just a printer and Microsoft Word. I've done this to other pictures now and have received several compliments from visiting friends and family. So simple anyone can do it. By Jona Kessans
