If you have lots of pictures laying around that you’ve been meaning to buy frames for, you’ll love these Easy Wood Photo Frames. These frames are made out of only a few materials which makes them super easy and you’ll be able to customize them however you would like.
Hi everyone! It’s Erica bringing you a fun craft you can make any time of the year. I have had scrap wood in my garage forever now and I can’t seem to get rid of it with the wood prices being crazy and all. So I took a couple of small pieces and made them into photo frames. It’s a great way to use what you have and have a fun time crafting with a friend.
How to Make Easy Wood Photo Frames:
I love these wood photo frames because you can customize them for each room in your house. Any color you paint them, they will all look amazing. This is even easier to make than the DIY mosaic frame – and it has a lovely beach theme.

Easy Wood Photo Frame Tips:
cut your wood
Sand your wood block
paint your wood block
Choose a color best that best suits your room style and paint the wood block with 2 coats of paint and let dry.
Cut and attach your ribbon
Cut a 15.5″ piece of ribbon and wrap it around the bottom of your painted woodblock, leaving about 1/2″ of empty space at the bottom. Carefully hammer in an upholstery tack on each side of the front to hold the ribbon in place. Hot glue the ribbon ends together in the back.
Slide a picture in
Slide a 4×6″ picture into the ribbon at the bottom of the painted woodblock and set it anywhere in your home.
