Framed artwork can be EXPENSIVE, am I right?! But it really doesn't have to be! When it came time to select artwork for our DIY dining room makeover a while back, we knew we would have to frame the art ourselves to keep the costs down. We tore down this old, cedar privacy screen from our back deck a while backpersonalized new baby gifts, which has provided us with a ton of free wood! We used it in our kitchen to make an awesome DIY plank wall in a herringbone pattern, but we still had a good amount of wood leftover. So, we grabbed our free wood and got to work on our upcycled art frames. Read on to learn how to make a DIY picture frame! {PS- You can find a source list at the bottom of this post}

Materials and Tools Needed for DIY Picture Frame:

Materials and Tools Need to Mount Art Work:


1) Measure the art you are planning to frame. The inner edge of your frame will need to be smaller than the art so that the art can sit behind the frame and there will be some wood to attach it to. To accomplish this, cut four lengths of wood so that the inside edge of your mitered board is about 1-inchshorterthan the dimensions of the art. For example, if you are framing a 16 x 20piece of art, you will want to miter cut your wood 15 inches and 19inches long on the insideedge. See the diagram below. Write down the dimensions that your frame needs to be cut to.

2) Mark your cuts with your carpenter square. Then cut your wood, making sure to set the angle of your miter saw at 45 degrees. It is VITAL that both long pieces are exactly the same length and that both shorter pieces are exactly the same length. This will ensure that your mitered corners line up perfectly. The best way to do this is to saw through both long pieces at the same time with your miter saw. Then saw through both short pieces at the same time with your miter saw.

3) Paint your flat corner braces, if you wish. I chose to paint our braces black, but I wanted to keep the screws silver for some additional interest.

4) Lay out all your pieces to create your frame. Secure the pieces together using the flat corner braces.

5) Use spray adhesive to attach your art to a piece of foam core board. We got our gorgeous art prints from Minted. Links to the specific prints we used are at the bottom of this post.

Then trim the foam core board to size using your craft knife.

6) Attach the foam core to your DIY art frame using small nails or a staple gun.

7) Attach frame hanging hardware to the back of your frame.

7) Hang it up and you are done!

How easy is that?! We made three of these frames for 3 different art prints that we got from Minted. Because we used reclaimed wood that we already had on hand, the only cost to us was the hardware. So for around $5.00 per frame, we have something that we love more than anything we could have ever purchased in a store! Check out the finished project. I LOVE the rustic wood and industrial hardware. What do you think?

All of the frames we made are hanging proudly in our dining room. We LOVE them.
