How to Make a Picture Frame from Scrap Wood
Here's how to make a picture frame using scrap wood. Add fun embellishments and personalizations to create rustic, creative homemade picture frames in just a few simple steps.
- Scrap wood pieces
- Wood stain I used grey
- Hot glue and a glue gun
Trim boards to whatever size you wish. Mine were actually the ends from a project and the perfect size for making picture frames. You can also sand your boards if needed.
Clean the boards well before continuing.
Then stain the boards in the color of your choice. I am using a grey stain for a weathered look but you can use any stain that matches your home for this project. Just paint on the stain with a paintbrush, allow to sit a few minutes, then wipe away any excess with a rag.
Once completely dry, wrap twine around one end of the board several times. Tie in a knot in the back to hold in place.
Then complete your project by adding on some embellishments with hot glue. I chose sunflowers, burlap flowers, and even some seasonal decorations for my rustic frames but you can use anything you like now that you know how to make a picture frame from scrap wood.
