Open Framed Art with Ruffles and Rouge and JoPhoto

We are so excited to share one of the most fun DIY projects we have featured on The Bride Link! We teamed up with JoPhoto and Ruffles and Rouge to show you all the fun to be had with open framed art! Shanna, owner at Ruffles and Rouge and designer for this project, demonstrates 4 different way to decorate the inside of a frame. Her creativity with frames ranges from table numbers for a wedding to wall art for the home. Although Shanna just shows us 4 ways to use frames in today’s project, there are truly countless ways to decorate with frames! Watch the video below to see Shanna and Alexa, from Events with Alexa, take you step by step through all these projects.
