This is love, you guys.! EASY DIY PICTURE FRAME! Not only because I put the most precious picture of my son to this frame but because it’s a DIY that ANYONE can do!
And now that we are closer to the holidays, I think this easy picture frame would make an amazing Christmas gift to someone with the perfect photo in it!
Just recently we redid our son’s room and I installed the COOLEST WOOD SLAT CEILING! and I also made these fun and easy DIY pictures frames to hang above his bed. Today I am sharing the tutorial on how you can make it yours in NO TIME!
So the idea was that I wanted to display HIM.
I wanted to show off my son’s personality….and if anyone who knows my little P reading this blogpost, would know that I hit the nail on the head with this shot. He is that real boyish boy with the most irresistible smile. Anyways…I am biased, of course, but he is a true cutie pie.
Ok. So back to the DIY PICTURE FRAME…
I whipped up both of these frames in literally less than an hour including the staining part. And it only cost me $5 each. Yep!
MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THESE EASY DIY PICTURE FRAMES!
- pine boards ( ft 1×2 pine board from The Home Depot)
- tape measure
- stain ( the color of choice!)
- wall hanging hardware ( can be found in The Home Depot!)
- I used The Dremel Ultra Saw– which is one of my favorite tools for completing easy and small DIY projects.
STEPS TO MAKE THIS EASY DIY PICTURE FRAME
Measure and cut the boards.
My frame is 24″x20″. Measure carefully! Measure the length and the width of the board but don’t forget that 1″ that will add becuase you are attaching the corners!
You will end up having 4 long ( for the side of the frames), and 4 short (for the top and bottom of the frames) boards.
Attach the corner of the boards
I decided to go the easy way and I tried to avoid using a miter saw. I am not an expert on using large tools (or not without my hubby being around!) so I chose the easy (and perfect way by the way!) way to attach the corners.
How to: Secure the boards to a flat surface or on worktable using clamps. Clamp the boards tightly together and using a wood screw, screw through from the bottom to the sideboard.
Stain the wood picture frame
I chose a lighter stain (Chestnut), and I loved how it turned out.
Staple your art or photograph onto the back of the DIY PICTURE FRAME!
I was so excited to finish up the project and I totally forgot to take a photo but all you need to do is to staple your piece of art or photographs on the back of the frame.
I love black and white photos and I got my 24×20 photo printed at Staples ( for super cheap!!).
Once the photo is stapled, add the hanging hardware and TADA!
Guys! I can’t tell you how much I love these frames!
I will sure make more in the future as it was a piece of cake to DIY these awesome frames!
I think it looks absolutely PERFECT in my son’s room. What do you think?
