Free Craft Pattern: Simply Plush Picture Frames

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick®
Pattern #: BK4K-0509002

You can easily transform old or new frames into very beautiful works of art. You can also cut your own frame from any thick piece of cardboard. All you do is wrap Lion Brand Chenille Thick and Quick® yarn around them, then personalize them, by gluing fun things that apply to the frame you are covering. Personalizing frames can be a lot of fun. We have used ribbon and ribbon appliqués to decorate ours.

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick®


Gauge is not important to this project.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Project takes about an hour per frame.

1. Begin on the bottom of the frame and carefully and evenly wrap yarn around and around it. Glue the yarn securely where you start and end your wrapping.

2. If you have made your own frame, glue a piece of cardboard to the back leaving one edge open to slide your picture between.
