DIY PEDESTAL FRAME IDEAS
The candle sticks, black frames and cute little clothes pins came from the Dollar Tree. With a couple of dollars, spray paint, few things from my craft stash, I came up with these DIY Pedestal frame ideas. I walked in there like I was made of money. I grabbed everything that I wanted and didn’t worry a bit about the price. Ha, don’t you just love dollar store shopping!
Today is Dollar Store Design Squad day and I can’t wait for you to see everyone’s project!
DOLLAR STORE SHOPPING LIST FOR PEDESTAL FRAMES
- photo frames (I bought the flat black ones.)
- small clothes pins
- glue (I used my hot glue gun and glue sticks from my craft supplies)
- ribbon (optional)
- photos/paper to add to frame (I used items from my supplies)
I already had the black flat spray paint, our Dollar Tree does not have spray paint. You could used a craft or Chalk paint, if you’d like.
. You can attach flowers, ribbons or anything else to decorate the pedestal frames with. I also added a small chalkboard to one of the candlesticks. Use your imagination.

I chose the flat black frames so I didn’t have to paint them to match my painted glass candle stick. One less step for this easy project.
Here’s the paint I used, the Rust-oleum Ultra has great coverage. I love quick and easy projects, spray paint is best for simple projects like this. I placed them in a cardboard box to paint them, being careful not to spray paint anything near them. I love flat black, it looks very trend but you could use any color.
For the backing in one of the frames, I added a page from an old hymnal (purchased from a church rummage sale) instead of photo. You can add paper or cloth to personalize these easy pedestals. I finally have a place to showcase this pretty feather that I found a couple of months ago. How cute are those mini clothes pins???
I am a huge fan of buffalo plaid and it shows! From the bow to the paper, you can see that I use this pattern any time I can. I caught the Solawood flowers on sale a while back and bought a couple of boxes of them and have hot glued them to lots of my crafts 😉
These chalkboards came with the wood holder and they fit perfectly on top of the candlestick. I used Chalk Couture on the chalkboard and the word Blessed on one of the other photo frames. You can find the chalkboards here: 3 – Chalkboards $6.99 (affiliate link).
Now that I have a small package of mini clothes pins, you will be seeing those again.
