|A Painting Framed for a Dolls House|
|Things to use for mini picture framing|
The partly made frame is in wood, especially made for 1:12 scale. You can buy lengths of it from dolls house suppliers and hobby shops. It has a groove down one side (the rebate) that the picture or photo sits in. (I'll write more about making wooden frames in my next blog post.)

I have also used fancy buckles as frames which work well once the 'pointy bit that goes through the holes' is removed!
|Three examples of picture framing|
The painting of a young girl on the side wall sits in a cardboard frame I made. I then stuck a heavy lace braid over the cardboard and painted it with a gold pen. It looks like one of those ornate gilded frames you see in museums.
The flower painting above the fireplace has a frame I made from wood, then painted gold before sticking the picture in it.
I hope these examples give you some ideas for your own framed pictures. More on making wooden frames next time!
