Sport-Picture-Frame-Craft Idea

All the Sport junkies in the house? This DIY picture frame is perfect for holding those youth sports photos or as a gift for the sports lover in your life.

I played soccer in high school – I was on the varsity team as a freshman. What can I say, I really liked the knee socks! Mod hodgepodge Walter from a-DIY-photo frame is reminiscent of the good ol’ days of my youth.
