Hello friends! Do you struggle to find picture frames that you love AND can afford? I know I do, especially when it comes to framing large art and photos. A couple of years ago I showed you how to create your own large-scale art for around $10.00. And I have several tutorials for how to make art/picture frames, like this one that uses 1 x 2 pine boards or this one that uses reclaimed wood. But both of those require power tools. Well, now I am SUPER excited to show you how to frame any artwork or pictures without any sawing or cutting AND for less than $20!

The best thing about this DIY picture frame tutorial is thatliterally, anyone can do it! You do not need any power tools. You don’t even need a hand saw. You do needa heavy duty stapleraccent pillow case baby burlap floor, but you could probably even do without that in a pinch!I am going to show you how to create a DIY picture framefor large-scale art (but you can certainly use this same method to make most any size frame)!

I love large scale graphic art for many reasons. Most importantly, I love it because it allows you to decorate a large wallfor very, very little money. But, as cheaply as you can make the prints themselves, I discovered that framing them out could be expensive or challenging for people to do themselves.NOT ANYMORE!I have discovered the easiest secret in the whole world for doing this yourself with very little money and even less effort.

If you would like a free printable for this project, just click the image below :)1) Paint or stain your canvas stretcher bars. For this particular frame, I used Enchanted Evening by Clark Kensington. After it dried, I used some Americana Decor Chalky Finishpaint in Relic(a dark gray color) to dry brush some gray color on for added texture and interest.

2) Flip your painted canvas stretcher bars over after the paint has dried. Then assemble your frame by gluing and pushing the corners together. It could not be easier!I usedDAP Rapid Fuseto glue the corners of the frame together.

3) After the glue dries (DAP Rapid Fusedries super quickly–;it's one of the things I love most about it), place your photo or print inside the back of the frame and staple it in place. You can see how we mount our large prints in this post.

4) Screw small eye hookson the back side of each vertical piece of your frame and then runyour picture hangingthrough both eyes, leaving a generous amount of excess wire so that you can twist the excess wire around the ends to secure it in place.

That’s it! I told you that was easy, huh? Check out the final product! With the print AND frame, this huge 36 x 48 inch art came in right at $30.

I love to sew scarves! They make great gifts and are easy beginning sewing projects! Today’s free project is the Pom Pom Patchwork Scarf Tutorial. I have a giant scarf with pom poms but decided that I’d like to make a smaller version, so I wrote this pom pom scarf tutorial to share with all of you!
