Making a Film Reel Frame

I inherited these empty film reels from my father-in-law (I have boxes full!). At Christmas I decided to try my hand at transforming them into picture frames.

After a basic cleaning, I spay painted one side (and sealed with satin finish), then traced the photo openings onto scrap paper to use as templates. The photos were copied in sepia tone on heavy paper and carefully cut to just larger than the template. Wallpaper samples were used to fill in the extra spaces in the reel. I used a cardboard pizza circle for the backing and glued it all together.
