Pick up a picture frame at a garage sale or thrift store, or find one collecting dust in your home. Clean and dry it. Spray-paint the frame your desired color (we used Luscious Green); let dry.
Spray-paint a different color on the matte insert or cardboard cut to fit your picture frame's opening (we used Hacienda); let dry.
Measure the length of your frame opening. Cut veneer strips 1 inch longer than the length of your opening (we cut 10 strips to fit an 11-in x 13-in frame). Measure the width of your frame. Cut veneer strips 1 inch longer than the width of your frame (we cut 11 strips to fit an 11-in x 13-in frame). Weave the strips into a basket pattern and glue the woven strips onto the matte insert. Trim off excess and let dry.
Slip the matte insert back into the frame. Center the numbers on the woven surface, and then glue them to the veneer; let dry.
This wall art works well for both standing picture frames and hanging picture frames. Hang or place a series of frames with different numbers in a row to create a fun arrangement for a variety of rooms.
