How to Make Your DIY Double Picture Frame
You want to start by staining your plank a dark color with the wood stain. Be sure to stain both the front as well as the sides that have no bark.
Brush on the stain in the direction of the wood grain. Allow it to sit a few minutes then wipe away with a rag.
Set aside to dry completely.
Next, you will need to download the simply blessed template here and upload it to Cricut Design Space. If you don’t know how to do this, be sure to follow along with the instructions in our Cricut Beginner’s Guide here.
Cut the white vinyl with your machine. Don’t forget to measure your board and then size your design to fit before cutting.
Weed any excess from the vinyl. Weeding tools make quicker work of this task.
Then use transfer tape to put the design onto your stained wood piece.
You will then use hot glue to secure the clothespins into place. Eye the placement by adding your pictures to the pins before adding glue.
I also made a quick video explaining how to upload the image in design space in case you are having issues!
Your double photo frame is now ready to be displayed anywhere in your home. Grab your supplies and your Cricut machine and make your own version of this fun project today. Trust me. You will love the results and how this one looks in your home.
