Today is Knock Off Knock Out
day! Our inspiration store is Zara Home
. The first of each month, five bloggers all share a knock off project from a pre-selected home decor store. Be sure to check at the bottom of this post for the other amazing projects from Zara Home!
I must be losing my ‘cool’ because I had never even heard of Zara Home. But, after checking it out for this month’s challenge, it’s a wonderful store with so many lovely items in it. You should definitely take a few moments to check them out.
For this knock off, I went with their *Fruit and Flower frame. It came in at a reasonable $26, but I still knew I could make it for less.

Buttons and/or miniature fruits and flowers (I bought mine at various craft stores)
White Spray Paint
I set out all my little fruits and flowers and gave everything a few good coats of Spray Paint.
Then, I started placing the items around the frame using my hot.glue gun. Certain items (mushrooms for example), I only had a few of, so I placed those on opposing sides and filled in as needed.
Zara Home’s frame doesn’t have an image in it, but I wanted to add one to mine. I spray painted the canvas that came with my frame a dark golden color. Then, I glued a rectangular chalkboard to it. With some chalk, I drew on the ampersand and border. Very simple but graphic.
After working on this project, it really opens your eyes to all the random items you could affix to a picture frame, spray paint all the same and get the same look.
Have you made a frame like this before?
