Organic Bloom frames

A few months ago, Charlottesville photographer Amy Benoit, who operates Sweet Pea Photography, posted pictures of some beautiful frames on her blog. I immediately asked if I could share them on my blog because I liked them so much.



They're called Organic Bloom frames. Made in Tulsa, OK, they are sold through independent photographers. Amy happens to be my local source for the frames.

Check out these pictures from the Organic Bloom blog of their warehouse:





Clearly, there's a lot of work that goes into each of these frames!

Here are a few pictures from Organic Bloom's Facebook page...there are some pretty creative applications of these things. Some are even being used as ipad frames!







I loved this set of stacked frames. I never thought to stack frames.



Aren't they great? I bet you could DIY these if you had a good saw and some patience!


No compensation here...I just thought these were pretty and wanted to share them.

  1. if you wanted to knock this off another way...go to a craft store and buy decorative plaques (the plain wood ones) paint and distress them and then mod podge some photos onto them. Not quite as nice, but gets you the effect, maybe?

  6. They are available through local, professional photographers.

    "They're called Organic Bloom frames. Made in Tulsa, OK, they are sold through independent photographers. Amy happens to be my local source for the frames."

    Go to their website to see who your local source is.

  7. Here is a shot in the dark.....what about Dollar Tree? maybe not the quality but probably would look nice painted and finished the way you chose.....

  8. I found these frames at Michaels for $.75-$1.49. I painted them and they look great. it was an easy craft project. The hardest part was having to wait between the paint drying times to finish. I used two coats of paint on the frames. I did not stack the frames, but it would be easy enough to do. You would just need to use a high powered staple gun in the center of the frame so your picture would cover the puncture marks.

  9. I have 4 of the ones from hobby lobby hanging on my wall.....all 4 different shapes and colors. Each one above an "art" display frame from Target that I keep each of my kids artwork displayed in and then a pic of them above it in the Hobby Lobby frames. They may be cheaper knock offs, but you can't tell. They still look beautiful and I don't have them sitting out/down where they'll get any action, so they're holding up beautifully

  10. How do you get they are the "originators". I made these when I was 10 in vacation bible school 20 years ago! Pretty much the same exact thing, we even distressed them :) Just because they were written about first dont make them first

    I am also a vendor of the Organic Bloom. Hobby Lobby's version of these frames are horribly cheap feeling compared to the real deal. I guess that is what you get when you only pay a fraction of the cost. Plus, it doesn't help support a USA man-made product and a company, but one who entire inventory is pretty much all from China.

  15. Oh, and I should add that I got them for 50% off, so I paid a whopping $10/8x10 frame. Much more affordable

  16. What is "mod podge"

    ReplyDelete
  17. where can I get these frames....perferably unfinished??

    ReplyDelete
  18. You can also try getting these frames from cutitoutalready.com, they don't provide the glass but you could get those from frames at the dollar store.

  20. For similar frames, but more affordable and also available to those of us who are not photographers go to shopsweetwaterframes.com or visit their blog at sweetwaterframes.blogspot.com

  21. I love these and am happy to support Organic Bloom, as they were the originators of this awesome way to frame images.  Gotta give props to those with the creative minds.

  22. Haven't seen these at Hobby Lobby or other craft stores I've checked out...do they maybe not carry them at all stores? I've seen a very small selection but certainly nothing like these...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi,
    Hobby Lobby has these frames...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Too bad they are MDF.  For the price real wood would be nice.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeah and the price you pay for them is stupid. My husband can make them out of real wood for a lot cheaper.

     I love the transformation and used it as inspiration for my Stairway Revel.  Check it out.

     Hello. I would buy a couple of these frames, as I do?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hobby Lobby sells some just like them(certainly cheaper)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeahhhh, I just found similar frames @ Hobby Lobby, gonna get these on the wall today!!  Yeahhh!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just love your site and these frames where can I find? 

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've seen a set of these (not quality ones!!! like a plastic lookalike) at Kohls for 50 bucks.. I think there was 7 or 9 of them in a set... they were 50% off but still didn't look worth $25 for all... I guess if you don't touch them.. form distance they look fine.. but I would rather get the real thing!!!

  34. FYI for those of you looking for $1 plaques at Hobby Lobby, they do not have them. Just because it's on Pinterest doesn't mean it's real. I love the Organic Bloom frames, Hobby Lobby does have some that are similar. I hate that someone pinned it incorrectly.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've looked and didn't see them either. I worked there last year and when I was there, they had them back in the custom framing dpt on an end cap. You might have to go to the store to find them because they don't carry everything in store online unfortunately.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I thought I read they had plaques and to hod modge your pictures to the plaques. The plaques are suppose to be a dollar not the frames.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Maybe she meant to type $10 instead of $1 =)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sure would like to see the link to the web site on HobbyLobby.com. Can't find them =*(

  42. These aren't worth the price. They leave the backs unfinished and there is no seal on any part of the frame. They are made out of MDF, so any moisture could ruin it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. uhh.... any moisture would ruin a wood frame too. jus sayin.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh these are super cute! I need some colorful frames in my life :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Is it possible to purchase these anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  46. OMG These are awesome!  I need to find these in my neighborhood!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Has anyone made them like she said? Buying and painting the plaques??

    ReplyDelete
  48. Whoa! Love, love, love those frames!  That's something I"d splurge on and NOT diy, for once. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. What beautiful frames.  I love going to estate sales and flea markets and finding fun frames and making them a part of our life.  I always imagine the memories that were once within the frames themselves and enjoy adding a personal touch to them and making my own memories

  51. You can get frames like these from readmywalls.blogspot.com.  Tell her that I sent you (Bridget).  I just ordered some from her with my birthday money and I LOVE them!  She will even send them unfinished so you can paint them however you would like!  I definitely recommend her!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I acutully didn't see comment from the other person who posted about SWF if I had I woudn't have posted my comment. I just moved from Tulsa and when I lived there I saw the Organic Bloom frames at a shop there (displaying a photographers photos) I wanted some but then I found out you have to order through a photographer and was irritated. Then one of my friends posted a link on FB to Sweet Water frames when they were doing a giveaway. I ordered two frames and love them. But my sis-in-law does alot of wood working so I am going to try my hand at making my own. Your post was pinned on pinterest and it said it was a DIY so I followed it to your blog.  

    ReplyDelete
  54. I just did this with my kids tonight.  It worked out well.  They had a fun time painting the wood and picking out pictures

    ReplyDelete
  55. I work with Sweet Water Frames, and it is definitely legit!  If you have questions give them a call.  You will probably talk with Shana, she is wonderful!!
