Step by step:

Begin measuring the edges of the picture frame. If you wish you can make a base with cardboard and decorate it.

Cover the edges with fabric, this can be done with fabric of the same color as the decoration or with a contrasting tone.

The edges are going to be decorated with ruffles. To make them take a strip of fabric twice (or a little more) the size of the edge and sew it through the center. Every few stitches gather the fabric to achieve the ruffle. Place the ruffle on all edges.

To cover the corners make 4 rosettes or fabric flowers. You can adapt this step to your tastes by decorating with beads or other embellishments. Use glue to place these decorations on each corner.
