While rummaging through an old house my mom bought I found this picture frame so I brought it home.  I painted it and it looks pretty nice now, but there is no glass for it so I thought I could make something else out of it.  The only things I could think to make was a zen garden but its about 12" by 14" so it would be too big.  Any other ideas would be great or else I guess I will have to go to the glass shop

i had a neat idea. how about making a art deco-ie painting, like with geometric shapes(squares & circles) and instead of using glass, use the gumball machine bubblesI couldnt figure out what to do with! LOL

I saw something in a magazine once that would be a cool use for the frame.  They put little finishing nails randomly around the back of the frame.  Then they criscrossed wire back and forth between the nails to make a haphazard grid in the frame opening.  Then they used different kinds of clips to clip pictures and notes to wires - made a great message/display board.  Hmm...I just realized that you didn't say if the frame had a back, so I guess this would only work if it didn't...
Anyway, hope this helps  Smiley,

Oops  I forgot to add that...no there is not a back.  And I think that would be a grand idea.  I could use all this different colored wire I have.  Maybe it would even look good hanging on the wall without clipping anything to it. Thanks

...or instead of clipping notes, pictures, whatnots to the wires, how about hanging earrings or other bits of jewelry?

If it's just open, why not hang an object or grouping on the wall and just hang the frame around it. I did this with a Mola and it looks awesome

  You could also stretch some fabric across the back and staple it in place.  It would still look nice without the glass.  You could fit a mirror in, or a bulletin/magnetic/marker board.
