Home | Printed Frames on a Budget

Saturday, 17 December 2016
If you've read my home styling posts before, you'll probably have a good idea of how much I love framed prints. I love the style of layering different frames on a shelf, and how you can add so much colour or style through the prints that you chose. You can pick up frames pretty cheaply from most homeware shops, but the actual prints can be a bit pricier if you want something good quality.

I recently discovered a little trick that can give you beautiful framed prints for so much less. I was in M&S picking up a birthday card when I spotted a few of the cards in the 'just to say' section which had really pretty designs. They had copper foil prints, cute quotes and different textures and I realised these were actually better quality than some of the prints I was buying on line. 


I bought a couple and framed them and I'm so happy with how they've turned out. It's something I wouldn't have thought of doing before, but framing cards is a much less expensive option and, compared with the lower price 'print your own' designs on etsy, much better quality. My favourite cards at the moment are from Marks and Spencer but Next have some really nice designs too. 


You could easily put together a lovely framed print for less than £10 or even £5 if you used a cheaper frame from Ikea or similar (this one above was £2.75!) With Christmas just around the corner, these would make a perfect present for a secret santa too. 

What do you think? Where's your favourite place to buy prints?

  3. Love this, I used to do this all the time as I love badgers but couldn't find many prints, but did fine cards! It's also nice to do if it's a special card from someone that you want to keep.
