Easy Picture Frame Centerpieces

[additional-authors]
January 18, 2023

I was originally going to make these picture frame centerpieces for the recent Jewish Journal Gala. The concept was to feature Journal covers in frames that would wrap around a vase of flowers. We ultimately decided to scrap this idea and just do centerpieces in regular vases. Still, it’s a great idea that can be replicated for weddings and birthdays using photos of the guests of honor. 

What you’ll need:

5″ x 7″ picture frames
Photographs
E6000 adhesive
Vase with flowers

1. For each centerpiece you’ll need four 5×7 picture frames. They need to have square edges so they can line up with each other. I bought them in bulk from Amazon.

2. Print your photos to fit, and insert them in the frames.

3. Apply a thin line of E6000 adhesive, or a similar permanent glue, along one edge of a frame and press the edge of another frame against it to create a 90 degree angle.

4. Do the same with the other frames until you have four sides glued together. The E6000 will not set right away so you can adjust the frames as needed. Allow 24 hours to dry. (Note: I have tried hot glue, but I find the hot glue just peels off when it’s dry, so I don’t recommend it.)

5. Find a vase that is shorter than the frames. Fill it with flowers, and place the vase within the picture frame structure. Now that’s a picture perfect centerpiece.
