I found a frame with a small matte at the Dollar Tree for $1.  
I took the matte out and painted it yellow with watercolor paint (you can use whatever kind of paint you have on hand).

I quite like how it turned out.  Can't wait to do another!

I chose yellow for the matte because the church in the original photo is yellow:
