Box photo frame ideas - our top picks
1. Dried flowers
Dried flowers can be bold and bright or delicate and muted. You might want to pick and press your own or dry flowers from a special occasion so you can carry the memory of it with you forever. Arranging dried flowers in a photo box frame is an excellent alternative to fresh cut flowers as they bring the same colour and nature into your home but are more cost-effective and better for the environment too.
2. Scrabble letters
We know that the scrabble letter thing has been done to death, but you know the saying ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ Scrabble letters in box photo frames are cute and kitsch and look great whichever room you hang them in. Spell a loved one’s name, write a cute or funny message, and create something that’s just for you. Scrabble letters are easy to come by, and you can add a photo of a unique or fun memory alongside your word or message too.
3. Heart-warming memories
Ticket stubs from your first date to the cinema, wristbands to that fantastic gig, a beer mat from the time you sat in the pub for hours and laughed until you cried - you get the picture (and you can make one too)! If you are the kind of person who finds it hard to let go of scraps and trinkets of special times you’ve had, why not proudly display them in your home in a box photo frame? Doing so will not only remind you of those great times and be a good talking point for when you have guests but will also ensure these items are preserved better for longer too.
4. Glitter quote
A cool glitter quote can be just the thing to lift us up and motivate us when we need some inspiration. Making a glitter quote for your box photo frame is easy. Simply choose some glitter card in a colour of your choice for the background, then write the words on another piece of card and cut out the letters - this card will go over the top to create an excellent glittery 3D quote that you can look at whenever you need a pick me up.
5. Button art
If you love to get a bit crafty and have a good imagination, then the world is your oyster with button art. All you need is a bunch of buttons, and you can create patterns and pictures that will inject some colour, creativity, and fun into your home - a great project to do with the little ones too.
