DIY Wood Picture Frames Supply List:
Here are the cuts you will need to make for this size frame.
- two 15″ (measured from the furthest tips)
- two 21″ (measured from the furthest tips)
Use your miter saw at a 45-degree angle to make your cuts. Then match up your corners with your display side face down.
This part is best with a helper. Add a thin strip of wood glue to one of the inner corners. Then have one person press the edges together while the other person uses a staple gun to connect the two pieces together.
Continue around, repeating this process until all the corners are done.
For this rustic look, I started by giving the picture frames a thin coat of watered down gray craft paint.
Once it was dry I gave it a coat of Kona stain, following the directions on the can.
The results were a gorgeous, deep wood tone with some gray undertones – which I LOVE!
If you haven’t tried your hand on making your own picture frames you need to! You’ll be surprised at how easy it is.
