SHOW & TELL FRIDAY- NATIVE AMERICAN HANDMADE PICTURE FRAMES

I am in a remodel of my Craftsman Bunglow, I will be showing each week a little of what is going on in our family room, it is going to be decorated in my Native American Indian Collection. I am enjoying everyone’s Christmas decorations, it brings the Chrismas Spirit into my home. A lot of wonderful idea, I hope to bring into our home after our remodel. I was hoping to have our family room finished before Christmas, now I do not think we will have it all finished. Thanks to all for bringing Christmas into my home.

Today I am sharing my Native American Indian prints and the Native American Indian frames. I made these frames from the tongue and groove pine boards, that we took off our Craftsman’s Bungalow walls. I cut the pine boards to the size I needed for my prints and nailed the tongue and groove pine boards together to make the picture frame. I peeled the bark off some logs and glued the bark to the pine boards. I cut small pecan tree limbs in small log sections and nailed the pecan logs on to the tongue and groove pine boards covered in bark, to form The Road of Life design around the frame. I placed the prints in the frame, and cut glass to fit the frame.I added a small bark covered board, around the insides of the frame, on to the glass.

A turkey feather hangs on this frame.

A flute is upon this frame and the knife is just a toy, the peacock feather, from my peacocks, got in photo on accident.

This print has a glare sorry, the Native American Choctaws, scenes on this print are playing stick ball, making cane baskets. If you look close, you can see the Spirits of the Native American Indians. The young girl child is dressed in her Native American Choctaw Indian attire. There is a fish in the print, where the glare is, I have the same fish upon the frame.

  1. Oh what treasures. I decorated my old home in south west and native American theme. This home has been under reconstruction. And I have never unpacked what I have left.
    But I love your collection.

  2. These frames are great, especially because you made them. They really enhance the artwork.
    I hope you stop by my blog, I’m having a giveaaway that ends Monday.

  3. Wow – these are such a perfect touch to the paintings – so much more fitting than some square old thing. It shows your respect for the subject. Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Wow! You put a lot of work into these framed pictures. And every second was well worth it. They are gorgeous! I love them – every one. Thanks for sharing them.

    You are always welcome at The Shadow of the Cross. Feel free to visit anytime.
