A Nest of Homemade Sequin Eggs

Here’s how to make gorgeous sequined eggs for Easter decorating.

I was really pleased with the way this nest of homemade sequin eggs turned out, although I must admit each egg took longer than I expected. The sequins that I used were small, but if you need to get this project done quickly, and you have a choice, buy the larger ones.

What You Will Need:

  • styrofoam eggs (buy eggs large enough to take a lot of straight pins)
  • sequins
  • straight pins (preferably short)
  • piece of felt, fabric place mat, or another small piece of fabric to use as a work surface
  • optional: ribbons
  • optional: a thimble

Adding SequinsHow to Make a Sequin House Photo FrameHow to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Spread a small piece of fabric on your work table and set out your sequins and a supply of straight pins.

You begin applying the sequins anywhere, but for the two eggs without ribbons, I began at the top of the egg (the small end) with a single sequin. Around that I put a contrasting row of sequins.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo FrameFrom this point on, try to position the sequins so they overlap the previous row a little bit, and overlap each other. I always worked from left to right, so the sequins always overlapped on the left-hand side.

Depending on the size of your egg, you may find that the pins collide inside, so that one pin already in place will prevent you from placing a pin opposite to it. If this happens, just withdraw the second pin and reposition it slightly, aiming the pin in a different direction. I found that aiming the pins slightly down and to the left of the row being worked on helped prevent most positioning problems.How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Adding Ribbon

If you wish to add rows of ribbon to your sequined eggs, it is probably best to begin around the middle. My styrofoam eggs had a manufacturing line around the centre, which helped line up the ribbon.

I did not use glue. Instead, I positioned the ribbon between two rows of sequins, so that each row overlapped the edge of the ribbon and held it in place. See the photo above, which shows the first ribbon being applied around the middle.

Tip: Do not choose wide ribbon for this project. Anything over a ½ inch will not lie flat against the curves of the egg. For the eggs that I was working with (slightly larger than a real large chicken egg) the ½ ribbon could only be used for one row around the centre line.

On outer rows, working with the narrow ribbon, if you do find that you have to ease the ribbon down a little bit, do it in tiny increments, creating very small little pleats or folds under the pins.

Ribbon Hangers

I displayed these eggs in a bird’s nest filled with moss, but I may add ribbon hangers to hang the eggs from my kitchen window frame. All you need for this is a loop of ribbon pinned to the end of the egg. Since sequin eggs are surprisingly heavy when finished, I would also add a drop of glue to make sure the hanger is secure.

Expert diagrams of the two major types of wood-frame construction for house walls and roofs

Two basic methods are used for framing a house: platform and balloon-frame construction. Platform construction is much more common than balloon framing, though balloon framing was employed in many two-story houses before 1930.

Platform Construction

With platform-frame construction, shown below, walls sit on top of subflooring. Multistory houses are built one level at a time with each floor providing a platform for building the next series of walls.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Platform House Framing—Wall studs extend from floor to ceiling for each separate story

Balloon Framing

With balloon-frame construction, shown below, studs run full height from mud sill to the top plate, to a maximum of 20 feet. This method was popular before the 1930s and is still used on occasion for stucco and other masonry-walled, two-story houses because such structures shrink and settle more uniformly than do platform structures.

But balloon framing is more dangerous to erect because of its weight and height, and the long, straight wall studs required have grown increasingly expensive and difficult to find.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Balloon House Framing—Wall studs run full height of the building

Wall-Stud Layouts

With both platform and balloon framing, wall studs and ceiling and floor joists occur every 16 or 24 inches, measured from center to center. These standardized layouts result in the least cutting and waste of floor, ceiling, and wall materials.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Conventional Wall Stud Framing—Wall studs are spaced either 16″ or 24″ from center to center

Most older houses have 2-by-4 wall studs spaced 16 inches on center; many newer houses have 2-by-6 wall studs either 16 or 24 inches on center to make exterior walls stronger and create a larger cavity for wall insulation. For more about wall framing, see How to Build an Interior Wall.

Wall Sheathing

Exterior wall sheathing adds rigidity to the structure and provides a flat base for siding, stucco, brick, stone, and other exterior wall finishes. Older homes have diagonal board sheathing—1/2-inch-thick boards nailed on the diagonal. Most newer homes have plywood or similar composite panel sheathing. For more about this, see Sheathing Exterior Walls.

Roof Framing and Sheathing

Roof framing can be quite complex, depending upon the complexity of the roof’s design. Below is the framing for a gabled roof.

Exterior roof sheathing serves the same purposes for roofing materials as wall sheathing does for walls. Most contemporary roof sheathing is either plywood or oriented-strand-board (OSB) panels; spaced wood sheathing is common for wood shingle roofs. For more about this, see Roof Construction Basics.

Christmas tends to go past so quick! All the excitement building up during Advent, and then it’s over! I try and make sure to build some memories around this special holiday. Each year we add a photo frame ornament to our tree. This is a fun way to remember all the past years, and how the kids grow!

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Two years ago we made these cute mini wreaths and last year these handprint photo frames.

My almost 3 year old son made this super adorable gingerbread house photo frame today(my daughter made a pretty Santa frame!)

We used the thick craft sticks and I “built” the house for him. Older kids can do this step themselves.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

I gave him some bits and pieces: sweeties made from pipecleaners, pompoms, Christmas trees and cotton wool to stick with glue onto his house.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

He stuck the pieces on, randomly. We talked about the cotton wool that resembles snow, and feels soft. The pretend sweeties from pipecleaners that are so colourful etc.
How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

With small pieces like these, I always give an earbud to use together with the glue. This way the kids only use a small amount. Oh, and do supervise whenever your young child work with small pieces!

I think this DIY Photo Frame post might be one of my favourites to date.

I’m a tiny bit obsessed with the colours of the yarn I used, in fact I used them in my crochet bunting too so they match.

I’ve been meaning to get some photos up on my walls for ages and I had lots of polaroid sized Instagram photos that I needed to do something with so decided to make these DIY photo frames using cardboard.

You will need:
– Cardboard
– Photos, any size you like
– A Pen
– A Ruler
– Scissors / Craft Knife / Cutting Mat
– A Glue Gun
– Yarn
– Paint / Glitter for kids to do some too

I started by drawing around the photo onto the cardboard then marked another line a bit further out. I used a craft knife to cut around the middle line revealing the hole that the photo will be seen through. I then used scissors to cut around the outside line leaving you with a frame.

You could do this any size you like and in any shape you like, we also did a heart but circles would work too.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Once you’ve made the first one you can just draw around the outside and inside so you know where to cut the lines on the second one, you don’t need to measure it all out again, unless you are making different sized frames.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

I decided to wrap yarn around my frames to decorate them, I secured the ends with a glue gun just to make sure they stayed in place. You could skip that step though if you were happy you had tied them tightly. The wrapping did take a bit of time as you have to cut a length of yarn then keep tying more on, it’s a good job for doing whilst sitting on the sofa in the evening watching telly. I didn’t do the corners as the yarn kept slipping but I was thinking you could make little snips in the cardboard to hold it in place, you could then do the corners different colours. Obviously if using a circular frame that wouldn’t be an issue.

I then stuck the photos on the back using my glue gun.

Cherry also had a go at making some, she painted hers and covered them in glitter, no surprise there! I say it every time but to avoid glitter falling off everywhere either mix it with glue and paint it on or seal it with Mod Podge / watered down PVA.

How to Glue Picture Frames Together

Things You’ll Need

  • Wood
  • Miter saw
  • Wood glue
  • Sanding paper
  • Glass (optional)
  • Finish (optional)

A custom-built poster frame is an ideal way to compliment a unique poster that means something special to you. Sometimes store brand frames will not fit your poster or are to bland and boring. You can build your own frame with ease, as poster frames are easy to build and require only a couple types of equipment.

How to Make a Poster Frame

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Pick the wood. There are hundreds of different kinds of woods available. Some are cheap and look alright, while more exotic woods come with a heftier price tag. Decide on a wood that will compliment your poster. Darker woods go well with black and white or other dark posters, while lighter woods compliment white and lighter colored posters.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Measure the poster. In order to build a custom frame for your poster, you must know the dimensions of the picture. Measure the height and width with a ruler. Jot the dimensions down on a notepad that you will not lose. Make sure you get the exact dimensions.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Measure the wood. You need 2 matching pieces for the height and 2 matching pieces for the width. Use the dimensions recorded earlier and map them out on your wood. Use a pencil to clearly label where you need to cut.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Cut the angles. You need a miter saw to cut the angles. Miter saws are ideal because they will set an exact 90 degree angle. After you have measured out the wood, you need to allow an additional couple of inches more for the angle, then proceed to cut your angles. The 2 long pieces of wood (the height), need to have opposite downward sloped angles for the top, and 2 upward sloped angles for the bottom. The shorter pieces (the width) need 1 upward and 1 downward sloped angle. If you cut the appropriate angles, all 4 pieces will line up to create a perfect square or rectangle.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Glue the frame together. Grab some standard wood glue and connect 3 pieces together. This includes your top piece and 2 sides. Use 3 clamps on the 3 connecting angles and let set overnight. In the morning, remove the clamps and test the durability of the frame. If solid, you are ready to proceed.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Get a piece of cardboard 1/16 of an inch shorter on all sides. This will serve as your backdrop. Place the poster on top of the cardboard. Slide the cardboard into the 3 connected pieces of wood. After the poster and cardboard is in place and straight, connect the fourth and final piece to the frame. Once again clamp and let set overnight. In the morning, make sure frame is durable and solid.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Sand and finish. Use either a belt sander or standard piece of sanding paper. Take your time, running the sander on the outside surface and edges that will not face the wall. Keep sanding until the wood is very soft and smooth. You now have the option of putting a finish on the wood. Finishes provide a nice final touch to your frame. They can make the wood shine and provide an additional color or texture. If you decide to add a finish, grab a brush and gently spread the finish on the wood. Make sure the finish goes on smooth and is not too thick.

Warnings

Always use caution when working around miter saws.

It All Started With Saving Money

I was recently scrambling to finish the last few things in our recent Laundry Room Makeover. All the big things were done, and it was finally my favorite stage

adding all the “pretty”! As I contemplated options for wall decor, I really wanted to save money by using items I already had in the house. Sometimes desperation brings out creativity, and before I knew it I had craft supplies all over my dining table. The end result was a farmhouse style picture frame that became the jumping off point for all the other decor.

I wanted the room to be bright and cheery with a little pop of pink. The frame I dug out of the closet was dark chocolate brown

not exactly the look I was going for! But the size was perfect, so I decided to go with it.

I’ll share every step I took with you so you can make your own picture frame too.

Supplies

  • Chalk paints in colors Vintage Cupcake (by Country Chic paints) and Cloudy Day (by Cottage Paint)
  • Paint brush
  • Towel
  • Old dry rag
  • Section of electric floor scrubber

How to Make Farmhouse Style Distressed Picture Frames

Here’s what I did to make some DIY distressed farmhouse frames. It just takes two different coats of paint and some distressing.

1.) Coat the entire frame with pink paint

I first coated the whole frame with the pink paint. I painted the edges first and then the front.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

2.) Dry the first coat

Since the base coat must be completely dry before adding the top coat, I sped up the process by using my blow dryer on it.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

3.) Paint a top coat of white

Once the pink paint was completely dry, I painted the top coat of Cloudy Day White. Again, using the blow dryer technique, I sped up the drying process until the paint was completely dry to the touch. Once the top coat was dry, it was time to try out a wet distressing layering technique. These are the supplies I used:

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

4.) Distress the frame

Although there are various ways to distress paint to give it a timeworn finish, this wet sanding method gives a bit more control over how much paint is removed.

Using the dampened floor scrubber pad (similar to these

You must use the white color to prevent color bleeding) and working in one small section at a time, I rubbed gently in circles in the areas where I wanted to remove some of the white paint.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

After rubbing gently, I would blot the area with the dry rag. This method allows you to remove just a bit of paint to reveal a hint of the color underneath, or if you keep rubbing, it will go right down to the bare wood (which I did in some areas, too.)

5.) Seal the frame with acrylic wax

After it was distressed the way I liked, I sealed the whole frame with a coat of Cottage Paint’s Acrylic Wax (in flat sheen).

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

I loved how just a few coats of paint totally transformed a dark and dismal frame into something bright and cheery!

These Homemade Picture Frames are easy to make with some cardboard from the pantry cupboard and some paint. They’re simple enough for toddlers and preschoolers to make, and such a sweet homemade gift for kids to give at Christmas.

A homemade picture frame is a such a meaningful gift for a child to give at Christmas. I mean, who among us would not melt receiving an adorable photo of our kids framed in a piece of their own unique artwork?

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Our homemade frames are easy for young children to make. We’ve repurposed some cardboard, and added a little paint and some sequins to make the frame festive. Once your child tucks in favourite photo of themselves, it’s the perfect homemade gift for a toddler or preschooler to give to a grandparent or parent.

  • light weight cardboard (think cereal box)
  • metallic acrylic paint
  • craft sequins or craft gems
  • glitter or glitter glue
  • scissors or X-ACTO Knife
  • paint brush

How to make our cardboard picture frame

To cut out the front of your picture frame, you need to cut a piece of cardboard slightly larger than your child’s photo. We traced our photos on a cereal box and added a little to each side and then cut them out.

Make a window in the frame

Next, you need to cut out the window in the picture frame that your child’s photo will be displayed in. Draw a rectangle slightly smaller than your child’s photo and cut it out. Cutting this inner rectangle is easiest if you use an X-acto knife.

Now have your child paint the front of the frame, and decorate with glitter glue and sequins or craft gems.

Make the back of the frame

To do this, cut another piece of cardboard a bit smaller than the decorated front of the frame. Glue it to the back of the front of the frame (get what I mean there?) but leave one end open to slide your photo in and out.

When the paint and glue are dry, pop a photo into the frame.

Let your kids get as creative as they want painting their frames. We got out lots of paint colours, and we used glitter-glue and sequins to as well.

Kids love to paint so let them just create freely so their frame will truly be a reflection of who they are. It will be most fitting for a frame that’s going to display their unique little self.

I took some photos of the kids in front of our Christmas tree so they’d have a framed holiday photo to give to their parents for Christmas.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

A beautiful, gift for the kids to give their parents at Christmas. I’m pretty sure there will be some hearts melting on Christmas morning!

Whether you want something unique and creative or just need to use up some scrap wood, making your own picture frame can be easy and rewarding.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

What is art? Critics and philosophers are free to debate the question endlessly, but we think it’s pretty simple: If there’s a frame around it, then it’s art! Less simple—but not so complex that you shouldn’t give it a try—is building your own picture frame. Beginning woodworkers love this project, and for many others it can be a great money-saver. Within only a weekend, provided you have access to a few basic tools, you can make a picture frame to keep for the rest of your life.

The following steps apply in a general way no matter what type of wood you want to use (or happen to have on hand), or what size you would like the picture frame to be. But for the sake of simplicity in this tutorial, we’ll assume that you intend to build an 11″ x 14″ picture frame from a 1″ x 4″ maple board that measures 4 feet long.

STEP 1
Setting the table saw at 1-1/2″ (from the blade to the fence), rip the wood board into two 4-foot-long pieces. These must be exactly the same width, so pass the wider of the two through the table saw a second time. (Of course, if you’d wanted the frame wider or narrower, you would have set the table saw accordingly.)

STEP 2
With a router, cut a 1/2″ x 1/2″ rabbet—that is, a rectilinear groove—along one of the long sides of each of the two pieces. The picture is going to lie against the rabbet, so if you expect to frame an item (or to use a mat) of considerable thickness, accommodate it by creating a more generous rabbet.

STEP 3
Use a miter saw to cut one end of both boards at a 45-degree angle, being careful to make sure that the rabbet runs along what is to become the inside of the frame. In other words, once you have finished cutting an angle into each board, the rabbeted edges should be opposite the longer (and pointier) side.

STEP 4
Measure the longer side of the picture you are going to frame; add 1/16″ to that measurement. Then choose one of the two boards and transfer that total measurement to its rabbeted side, marking the distance. Here, cut a 45-degree angle, this time in the direction opposite to the initial angled cut. Next, place the second board over the one into which you’ve just now cut a second angle. Mark the second board, then cut it so that you have a pair of identical pieces. On the two leftover pieces, repeat the process of measuring, marking, and cutting, this time using as a guide the shorter side of the picture to be framed. Make sure you’re keeping the rabbeted side to the inside of the frame.

STEP 5
Assemble the four pieces into a rectangular shape, remembering always to position the rabbet groove to the inside. Dab wood glue onto each joint, then fasten the pieces together by means of brad nails. Two nails close to each outside corner ought to do the trick. Wipe away any excess glue immediately. Let dry overnight.

STEP 6
Sand the picture frame, then wipe away any sawdust with a damp cloth. Once you have allowed enough time for the wood to dry completely, it’s safe to apply your choice of finish. (If you’re building with attractive lumber, I recommend finishing with linseed oil.) Having finished the piece, flip it over so the back (rabbeted) side is facing up. Fit a piece of cut-to-size glass into the frame, then lay the picture face down on the glass and place a backing over it. You have several options for securing everything in place, including glazing points or brads.

Congratulations, you’ve created a masterpiece: You might even decide to leave the picture out entirely, because the frame itself is such a work of art!

Instagram frames are all the rage at bridal and baby showers, am I right? I made a rustic themed Instagram frame for one of my best friends from college and it was a hit. I’m not exaggerating. This thing was passed around from person to person at the bridal shower. I don’t think a single lady made it out of the shower without getting at least one picture in the frame. It was an awesome celebration!

I picked up this foam core board for $9 at Michael’s. They offered to cut it for me, but I had to wait 20 mins for the girl to come back from lunch. I’m impatient and I’ve got stuff to do. So I opted to do this at home myself.

I measured 9 inches up from the bottom of the frame in multiple points across the board. Then I used a yard stick to draw a straight line connecting all of the marks I made. This will be the large bottom of the frame.

Using the same strategy, I used a speed square and did the same exact thing on the other three sides of the board. But instead of marking 9 inches, I marked 3.5 inches around the other 3 top sides of the Instagram frame. speed square

Here’s what it looked like after I marked off all the sides and connected the intersections. You can see the frame is starting to take shape with the thin top 3 sides and the thicker bottom side.

You can use a box cutter or a utility knife to cut out the middle. Take your time. You don’t want rigid edges.

After I removed the center, it was ready to wrap! I used a brown paper roll that I bought from Amazon for other projects to cover up the white. Lay the paper across the table and place the frame on top to see how much paper you’ll need to cover the surface.

Think about this next step like wrapping a present. You want to make sure you have crisp corners and straight folds. I used clear packing tape to hold everything in place on the reverse side.

The bottom is shaping up nicely! I repeated the same exact process for the top of the frame. Make sure you put the correct side face down so all the tape is on the back of the frame.

I took the extra time to make sure the corners were nice and crisp when fitting the paper to the frame. I’m glad I did. Then I added a vinyl stencil to commemorate the occasion! You can’t have an Instagram frame without a hashtag for the event! I used transfer paper to add this to the frame. SUPER IMPORTANT: Do not use brand new transfer paper because it will tear the brown paper. I used a piece of transfer paper that I used on multiple projects so the adhesive was not as strong. The vinyl letters went right on and the transfer paper came right off without sticking too much to the brown paper.

The flowers and petals are also from Michael’s. It was a 32 combo pack for $26. Not a bad deal! Take a few minutes to position the flowers and petals in different combinations around the frame. I laid it all out so I could visualize what it would look like before I made the life long commitment of hot gluing them into place. After I settled on a pattern that I liked, I hot glued them into their permanent position.

The rustic Instagram frame was a huge hit at the shower! and look at the happiest bride to be!

There are a few things you should know before you tear apart the packaging of your new digital picture frame. How do your pictures get in there? What do you need to upload them? Can it be done using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology? Your first step is to determine which photos you’d like to use. This can truly be the hardest part of setting up your electronic frame — and the most fun! After reading this article, you’ll feel confident enough to maneuver yourself through the process of setting up any digital frame.

Things to Keep in Mind Before Setup

It may feel overwhelming as you’re attempting to choose the photos for your picture holder. Some frames are only compatible with certain file extensions. File extensions?! “What are those?” you might be thinking. Simply put, they are the type of file that your image is saved as. Most frames are compatible with JPG & JPEG file extensions. If the digital frame has video capability, it’s likely it will be compatible with MPEG-4 and MJPEG (Motion JPEG) files. Remember that when you choose your photos, you want to ensure that they’re the highest size and resolution possible. This way, you end up with the best and brightest looking photos.

Your digital frame instructions/box should have the specifications, requirements, and suggestions to help you setup the product. Digital photo frames store images in different ways. Some just need the SD card with the images inserted into the frame, while others have you upload the images from a computer using a USB wire to transfer the images. Wi-Fi, Cloud, and Bluetooth versions allow for content to be uploaded wirelessly over the internet. This is becoming a popular choice amongst consumers due to the convenience factor. People can simply use their smartphones to upload whatever photos they like to their digital frame without all the extra hassle. If software is required, a DVD with the specific program will be packed with the product. Some products offer the photo software as a file that is downloadable through their website, which can be accessed with a supplied code.

How to Convert Images to a Universal Format

So you unboxed your frame and are about to choose which images to display. First things first – turn on your computer and locate the photographs you want to show on the frame. By opening your pictures in a photo editor on your computer you can ‘save files as’: a JPG or JPEG by clicking ‘save as type’ on the bottom and changing the file extension to the appropriate format or file type. See the following links for Microsoft Windows & Apple OS X instructions.

How to Locate & Copy Your Photos

  • On most computers, these photographs will be stored in a folder called “My Pictures” or “My Documents.” Just right-click (or Ctrl+click for Mac OS) on “My Computer,” choose “Explore” from the menu and navigate to those folders. Once there click on “View” and choose “Thumbnails” from the menu. This will allow you to see a preview of each photograph so you’re able to choose the right ones.
  • Highlight the first file you want to copy, hold down the “Ctrl” key on the lower left or right-hand-side of your keyboard, and then select the next photo you want to copy. Continue this process until you have selected all of the photographs you want to display on your digital photo frame. After you have selected all of the files, right-click and choose “Copy” from the menu. This will copy all of the files to a temporary clipboard and make it easier to move them. Some digital frame software allows you to drag and drop photos. Selecting all the images and placing them in a new folder is also an easy way to keep which pictures you want for your frame organized. This way you can view all your pictures in one place.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Find & Upload the Pictures Onto Your Hard Drive with an External Drive

  • Ensure you’ve copied all images that you want using the instructions under “How to Locate and Copy Your Photos”. Insert a thumb drive into a free USB port on your computer. Wait a few seconds for the computer to recognize the thumb drive, then right-click the drive letter of that thumb drive (most likely the drive letter will be “E:” “F:” or “G”). After right-clicking choose “Paste” from the menu. This will copy all of the photographs you selected in the previous step onto your thumb drive.
  • If your picture frame uses a memory card, place the card in the memory card reader attached to your computer. Insert the external drive/card into the digital frame and follow the previous step to move your images.
  • Insert the thumb drive into the USB port on the digital photo frame and then plug the frame in. Depending on the model, you may need to press a button to start the slideshow of images.
  • If your picture frame uses a memory card, insert it into the device and power it up to start the slideshow.

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

To transfer photos wirelessly, connect to the same network that the device is on. If the frame is Bluetooth-enabled you will be able to upload pictures from a smartphone or Bluetooth ready computer/tablet.

Some frames have customization capabilities, which let you choose the transitions between photos as well as select a widescreen (16:9) or standard (4:3) photo ratio.

Keys to Success

For a smooth set-up of your digital frame, be sure to read through these tips:

  • Keep original photo files on computer or thumb drive.
  • Make sure photos are in the correct format. JPG is a universal format.
  • Do not disconnect the wire until everything is uploaded. Then click on the “Safely Remove Hardware” option to eject the drive.
  • Keep in mind that you might not be able to move photos back to a computer from the digital frame.
  • Have FUN and create something special!

Carol Duvall, host of HGTV’s The Carol Duvall Show, shares her discoveries about matting and framing artwork:

Beginning with a turquoise mat, add 1/2″ foam board on top and end with the addition of a white mat on top of the foam board.

Here the image is cut apart, each section mounted on 1/4″ foam board, and individual mats cut around each section.

So many crafters, painters and needleworkers have their work matted and framed and spend many dollars to do it.

I sat down by myself with a mat cutter and a book, The Complete Guide to Basic Mat Cutting, and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to learn and to do. and what a terrific difference the right mat could make in the appearance of even a single photograph or greeting card. I stopped cutting only when I ran out of mats to cut.

The main purpose behind all of this, however, is not to show you how I could cut a mat but to show you how you could do it yourself, without having a degree in math or engineering, and how you could save money in the process. The costs can really escalate when you want to have more than one opening cut in a mat, such as when you want to include multiple photos. All arguments aside, the best reason to cut your own is because it’s fun to do.

Another reason to do your own mat cutting is that, for the first time, a truly professional type of cutter is available for under $100. The LoganB. cutter I used is listed at $79. (Note: The cost of this product has increased to $109.95 since this segment first aired.)

It can be a little tricky to know what color and what size mat to use, as well as what size opening to cut.

Fortunately, the book I mentioned has plenty of information and guidelines to help you make such decisions. And what an interesting picture can be produced by simply matting and framing something as basic as a greeting card or rubber-stamped image. Yup, forget the saving money part. This is a whole new craft to enjoy.

Additional Notes

When I checked with various craft and art-supply stores around the country, I discovered a wide range of prices on mat board. The price of a 32″ by 40″ piece ranged from $4.50 to $12, sometimes even at the same store! It depends on finish as well as color and whether it is acid-free. The folks at De Young’s Art Store in Traverse City, Mich., said they could order a piece of mat board as large as 40″ by 60″ for $15, but they were the only store that did.

Introduction: Making a Frame From Crown Molding

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

How to Make a Sequin House Photo Frame

Making your own frames is surprisingly difficult. These frames are for more decoration than entirely structurally sound (so do not try to hang a Picasso or a 50 lb piece of steel in one of these).

But they can be used to gaudy up any space and make you realize how hard it is to get perfect 45° cuts! But fear not. It can be done, and when it can’t, thats what glue and wood filler is for.

Step 1: The Materials

Crown molding; crown moulding if you’re british.
Wood glue
Brad or nail gun
Skill saw & stop
Pencil
Plexiglass or glass to size
Glazing points
Wire/hanging mechanism
Backing board.

– Crown Molding; when buying lengths, keep in mind that material will be lost for corners. You will need more than you expect (based on sight alone).

Use this formula: total footage needed = [(width of moulding x 8) + (height of frame x 2) + (width of frame x 2)] / 12

So for a 12 x 14″ (interior size) frame with 2″ molding :

Step 2: Cutting Your Pieces

The easiest way to do this is to make a stop for the skill saw. This can be as simple as a clamped block of wood that stays put for each identical length.

Set your saw to a 45º angle and keep it there for all cutting. You will need to remove the angle from the same sides to ensure that the pattern on the crown molding matches when you assemble the frame. So your sides must both be angled identically to mirror each other.

NOTES: One trouble with crown molding is the unevenness. Often the larger kinds will have a lip, which makes it difficult to measure and mark correctly. However, this comes in handy for the frame itself to keep the glass in place. Keep the lip on the interior of the frame. Be sure to cut with the flat side on the table or your cuts will be beveled, which makes for impossible assembly. Using blocks or skill saw clamps negates the need for measuring & marking on the wood itself.

Be sure to take into account the width of the saw blade. Skill saws will take off a good chunk of your line width if not factored in. If they are looser measurements, it’s not as much of a concern.

Step 3: Sanding

Sand. Pretty straightforward.

Warning: do not get so carried away that your end up changing the angles. This is simply to get rid of burrs.

Step 4: Glue & Clamp

Using strong wood glue (I used quick setting Gorilla wood glue, which sets in about 30 minutes and cures overnight), adhere each corner as lined up as possible. I smear with my finger to remove excess and get a more even coat.

The pieces like to slide around and move out of place. Don’t let them! They’re fancy wood but you can tell them what to do.

Use clamps to evenly apply pressure around the frame and keep squareness as it dries. You can also tape around the exterior of the whole frame to keep it in place.

Step 5: Paint

This conveniently covers up stray glue, weird marks, and makes it more wonderfully gaudy.

Step 6: Other Stuff!

Have plexiglass cut, or cut it yourself to fit. Plex isn’t a MUST but it can be nice to avoid potential direct contact with your art, photo, diploma, signed letter from Beyonce.

Insert glass, matte board (if wanted), thing being framed, backing board and finally glazing points. These are an inexpensive way to insure that your beautiful hard work doesn’t fall out of the back. Here is a slow video about how to insert. You can also push in with a screwdriver or chisel.

Attach wire or desire hanging mechanism to back.

I am looking at tools to buy for this project. When you say “skill saw”, am I looking to buy a skilman saw, or a miter saw? And what are you referring to when you say “skill saw and stop”? what is a stop? What is a miter box?

Thank you for your time.

RachelM5, When he says “Skill saw” it is a confusing term. “Skil” is a brand name of saw that has become commonplace in society, like “Aspirin” and “Band-Aid”. When I Think of a SKILSAW I think of a Jig Saw, this project requires a Miter Saw (Also referred to as a Chop saw or “Power Miter Box”) You can get a very simple one that works for this use for only about $120. Or you could go the old fashioned way with a Miter box and a Hand Saw for about 8 bucks. All a Miter Box consists of is a space to set the wood, and a fence to properly support it. The fence has various angles pre-cut into it to guide your hand saw to cut the Angle.

How to Frame Antique Maps

Memorabilia enthusiasts collect items that are meaningful in either a personal or historic way. Among these types of memorabilia are historical or otherwise important documents. Collectible documents can include signed contracts, historical records or early drafts of important documents. One way to display these documents is by framing them and hanging them on a wall. Framing collectible documents should be done with care and attention to the quality of the framing materials, ensuring no damage is done to the document by careless framing or exposure to exterior lights.

Determine if you want the document to be permanently mounted in the frame. This will largely determine the quality of matting, adhesive and framing materials you will need. Documents framed permanently (or long-term) should be protected with acid-free matting, UV-protected glass and nonadhesive mounting.

Use an acid-free and lignin-free mat board to protect your document. Place the document on the mat board, centering it on the matting in the manner in which you wish it to be displayed.

Mount the document to the mat board. If you are planning on displaying it permanently, an adhesive tape or glue can be used. If the document is not going to be permanently displayed in the frame, attached thin strips of paper to the corners of the mat board to create a slot in which the document corners can fit. Place the document securely on the mat board.

Place a backing board behind the document and mat board to help immobilize the document within the frame.

Choose a glaze for the frame that will protect the document from light damage. The right glaze for the document will depend on your preferences for UV protection, weight, breakability and scratch-resistance. You should choose either acrylic or glass for the glazing.

Place the frame around the glaze, document, mat board and backing board. Display the document in an area that balances visibility with exposure to outside light.

Read this if the thought of dismantling your completed 1,000-piece project is just too much to bear.

The upside to spending so much time indoors? We have more opportunities to test out new hobbies and crafts—like puzzles. And while a 1,000-piece jigsaw can feel like a daunting, complex undertaking if you’re not familiar with the pastime, putting one together is actually a meditative craft that can even result in a piece of art, something you can hang in your home forever. At least that’s how Rachel Hochhauser, the co-founder of Brooklyn-based company Piecework Puzzles, feels about it. “We find puzzles to be a calming—and often communal—experience worth commemorating,” she explains.

Approaching the project with the intention of gluing and framing it also eliminates that impending dread of having to break up a ton of hard work. As for the best types of puzzles to frame? Look for options, like Piecework’s “Life of the Party” ($36, pieceworkpuzzles.com) and “Forbidden Fruit” ($36, pieceworkpuzzles.com), which have plenty of negative space, says Hochhauser—but it’s more important to choose something you love. “We like to think all [puzzles] are frame-worthy!” she shares. “But when the image depicts a scene you’d gravitate towards anyway, why not frame a piece of art you had a hand in creating?” Ahead, Hochhauser shares her best tips for gluing and framing your final product.

Complete the puzzle first—don’t glue as you go.

“We encourage people to look at puzzles as experiences,” Hochhauser explains. “It’s about fitting something together by hand, working it through, piece by piece—instead of the outcome.” And sometimes, when you’re especially proud of the work you’ve completed, “the act of gluing the puzzle can become an extension of the activity.” However, Hochhauser doesn’t recommend gluing each piece down one by one, since that disrupts the fun nature of working on puzzles in the first place.

Protect your surfaces before you begin building.

Your process should look like this: “Start by building the puzzle the same way you usually would,” with the pieces face up, Hochhauser notes. “But do it on a surface you don’t mind getting a little glue on. A big piece of cardboard or foam board works well. You can also use sheets of wax paper for ease and flexibility.” Once you’ve completed your puzzle, make sure it’s as flat as possible. “Press it down with books or use a rolling pin,” she suggests. Then, brush any dust off the surface.

Choose your glue wisely.

After your puzzle is nice and flat, it’s time to glue it down—and some formulas work better than others: “We prefer liquid glue as an adhesive; Mod Podge ($4.99, target.com) is a good standby, but does have a shinier finish,” notes Hochhauser. When you’re ready to begin gluing, “start on one edge and work glue onto the puzzle, covering the top and making sure it gets into all of the cracks. You can use a regular brush, but a small piece of stiff cardboard or old credit card can also work well to prevent pooling and excess,” she explains.

Make sure the puzzle is completely dry before you frame it.

Your glued puzzle should dry overnight, or even longer if needed. “From here, you can either use a spray adhesive to mount it on an appropriately-sized foam board, or, if you’re careful, put it directly into a frame,” Hochhauser says. “We like to treat puzzles like you would any other piece of art—consider matting it and using a frame that complements the imagery.”

Everyone has one. A plain, basic, full-length mirror that’s doing nothing for your home decor game. It’s time to step it up buttercup, and give this mirror a makeover. In this DIY post, I’ll show you how to build a rustic wooden mirror frame.

Materials Needed

  • Full length leaner mirror (Mine measured 60 x 18 inches) – Here’s a smaller option from Wal-Mart and a larger option from Wal-Mart as well
  • ***Three (3) 6ft x 5.5 in. pieces of common board, pine – this may vary depending on how large your mirror is and how thick you would like your frame to be
  • Staple gun
  • Hammer
  • Liquid Nails
  • Miter saw would be best, but we used an orbital saw
  • Measuring tape
  • Sandpaper
  • Wood stain – I used Minwax Wood Finish Penetrating Special Walnut 224
  • Foam brush
  • Rag
  • Polycrylic Finish- I used Minwax Polycrylic Clear Stain Spray

*** Tip: Make sure that when you purchase your boards that they are all the exact same width. Even though all three were labeled the same size, one was slightly smaller which made it more difficult later on for us. Also, be sure that all the boards lay flat to the ground and they aren’t warped at all.

Instructions

1. The mirror I started with featured a thick, plastic frame. First, I removed the paper backing and then started to pull away the supporting pieces that were held in with staples. Once that was completed, I used the flip side of the hammer to hook on to the frame and carefully pull the frame off of the mirror. You must go super slow and be patient! If you break the mirror during this step, there’s no going back! It might also be a good idea to wear protective eye wear during this step. The pieces can pop and fly off.

2. Each board will need to be cut at a 45 degree angle to line up at all corners. Start with one of the boards on the longer sides. Since we didn’t have a miter saw, we measured the width of the board at 5.5 inches. Then we measured down the board, and marked it at 5.5 inches. We then used a straight edge to draw a line through the corner of the board. We had to think way back to good ol’ geometry class and reference a right triangle. We knew if sides a and b were the same length, it would ensure that angles A and B would be 45 degrees.

3. Next we cut 45 degree angles on the shorter side to line up with with the longer sides while measuring the width of the mirror. Then we cut the other shorter side with the exact same measurements. Finally, cut the bottoms off on the longer sides to match the length of their mirror.

4. Once you’ve got all the boards cut, before attaching them, I found it easiest to sand the wood in this step. You’ll want to make sure that you get the tops and all sides to make sure they aren’t any sharp edges poking out.

5. You’re finally ready to build your wooden mirror frame! You’ll want a friend to help you during this step. Add a generous strip of Liquid Nails glue to the edge of each side one at a time. After you glue the side, immediately use the staple gun on the back side of the frame to pop in about 10 staples. This can get a little messy, so you will want to wipe off the staple gun will you do this so it doesn’t get clogged up. Once you’ve finished all sides, you will want to add weight to all four corners (we used paint cans) and let it dry for 24 hours.

6. The next day you’re ready to stain. Any color stain will do. I used Minwax Special Walnut 224 which is a darker stain, because I wanted to pull out the knots in the wood. I applied using a foam brush, then I let the color sit for about a minute. Then I wiped off the excess stain using a rag. After that, you’ll want to let it completely dry before the next step.

7. To seal the wood, use a polycrylic finish. Personally, I like Minwax in spray form, because it’s just so simple to use. The good news is that it also dries fairly quickly.

8. Once the frame is completely dry, you’ll be ready to attach it to the mirror. Flip the frame over on the reverse side and using the Liquid Nails, place glue on the outer edge of the wooden frame. You’ll want to be generous with the glue, yet very careful not to get too close to the edge. Keep in mind, once you place the mirror down, it could come out the sides, and you’ll want to avoid that. Once you place the mirror on top of the wooden frame, use your weights to place on top once again. This will hold down the mirror to the frame to make sure it dries securely. Let dry for 24 hours, and then you’re done!

I’m so excited with the end result of this DIY Rustic Wooden Mirror Frame. Rather than a plain old mirror, I now feel like our bedroom has a statement piece which totally transforms the look of the entire room. While this DIY project took a few days to complete, the overall process was pretty simple.

If you have any questions about the process, please ask. I’d love to see your mirror transformations.

Here’s a quick and simple tutorial on how to build a DIY Wood Mirror Frame.

I previously shared my vintage windows as picture frames, but I never shared a tutorial on how to make a window picture frame. I’ve had many questions about it, so I thought I’d share a little post on how I did that. It is one of my favorite picture displays in my home, and just off of my front door, so it gets a lot of notice from the traffic in and out of our home.

I set out to find some vintage windows at my local antique store, and planned on the traditional vertical panes that I’d seen other places. It took me a minute to adjust to the square nature of these frames, but then I got excited that they were a bit different than the norm. I knew I was going to use them as picture openings, and just needed to adjust my expectation to the square picture over the rectangle (they didn’t have the rectangle). It actually worked out for the better since I had so many images–some vertical, some horizontal–and the square accommodated for both the best. I think these were marked at $25 or $30 each. And I asked the store owner for a discount since I was getting two. I was able to get both for $40.

I planned for the pictures to fill the entire opening, but oopsey, they were too small. It actually worked out in my favor though. I sized the iwindow opening to 10.5×5 (it looked like an exact square, but it was deceiving. When I ordered my prints, the lab I used didn’t have that size, so in photoshop, I created a document the standard size at the lab (I am pretty sure it was 12×18, but can’t quite remember). I cropped my picture to the size I wanted it (10.5×10) and “dropped” it into my 12×18 in the other photoshop window. If you don’t know photoshop, this might be trickier, but if you have it, it’s worth learning how to do this. Then I made the outer side an obnoxious green color with the instructions for the lab assistant to trim off the green with their big trimmer. I then picked up my prints in the 10.5×10 size. I saw no bright green in my prints.

When I got home, I decided I’d adhere my pictures to a giant cardboard box piece. This was tricky lining everything up, especially since I measured wrong and some of the box showed through.

My measurements of the window were not exact, so my pictuers were a little smaller than I wanted them to me. Instead of printing them again, I spray painted my cardboard box a turquoise to match our clothing. I tried to keep the measurement of the pictures with the boxes on the cardboard so it would be easier for me to line it up to the frame when I attached them.

I’ll admit, lining up the pictures exactly with the opening was a pain and took a few tries. It would have helped if I had measured, but that task seemed too tedious, and I like to eyeball things–even if it takes me more time. I know, crazy. It’s the artist in me.

I LOVE how it looks with the pop of turquoise behind each print!

The “i love us” print I found at Eighteen25, it makes me happy.

Once I was done with the picture arranging, I used an industrial strength staple gun to attach the cardboard to the wooden window. This is my husband pulling out the staples when I realized my pictures weren’t as straight as I thought. Boo hoo. The cardboard made a great picture backing–no one will ever see it. I think I attached my pictures to the cardboard with tape that may or may not be archival safe. I’d go for the archival safe option. Really, I can’t remember if it was or not, but they look great to this day!

Tadaa! The silhouette in the middle is a whole other story. It is a puzzle of pieces taped together, I would just get a big print if I were you;)
