VDAY DIY: A Crochet Picture Frame

Hi Happy People,

Are you getting in the mood for V-DAY? We are!

Today I decided to make a lovely home made gift for Gilly.
Here is a tutorial how to make a 'Crochet Picture Frame'.

Let's get started! First of all, I found this lovely idea on a Dutch blog. You can find it here.

You'll need:
- a bracelet
- a crochet needle
- felt
- scissors
- a picture
- glue

Step 1: Make 84 slip stitches around the bracelet and close with a slip stitch.

Step 2: Crochet 3 chain stitches and make a double stitch in every slip stitch.

Step 3: How to make a scallop? *Skip 2 stitches and crochet 7 double stitches in 1 stitch, skip 2 stitches and a slip stitch in the next stitch* and repeat

Step 4: crochet 15 chain stitches and close with a slip stitch

Step 5: Make a picture and glue this to the picture frame. After that, glue the felt to the picture. And you're done!

I used this lovely 'selfie' Gilly and I made.

I love the result! It is a lovely decoration to show your best friend you love her!

Awhh, we do look cute, don't we?!

Comment down below what kind of picture you would place in this picture frame.
Stay tuned for some more picture frame ideas!

Lots of love,

  1. Lovely idea, Lilly! I think I'll be making a few of these, they'd make perfect gifts!

  2. Awesome .. that turned out so cute, I love to crochet so this is something I could do easy that would be special for friends. Thanks for sharing it .. just too cute.

    1. Thank you! I like them too. If you want to make them, try to find some bracelets which are 3 inch wide. I used some smaller ones and I had to figure it out to make it fit! Have fun. X

  3. This is great and your instructions are wonderful. I don't think mine would ever look that nice (you should see the green scarf I made). Thank you for sharing!
