I have posted random projects using these frames for the past few months…and every time I do I get asked…HOW to make them! And they are so easy (I literally made 100 a few weeks ago!) So let’s hold hands and I will teach you how to make these super cute frames! Did I mention they cost about $2 to make?? That makes them the greatest present ever! (edited to add….I create a wood frame round 2–the chunky frame! See it here!)

I even hopped on facebook live to show you step by step!

Okay, let’s head to Home Depot!

 

for the edges/frames: On an end cap is a pile of this wood. $1.07 each! Really cheap…and you can get about 2 whole frames (8 pieces) from each one!–sometimes more depending on size!

You will want to try the flattest piece of wood that looks smooth. Some of those small boards can be totally the 1 last update 2020/07/04 splintery and curvy!You will want to try the flattest piece of wood that looks smooth. Some of those small boards can be totally splintery and curvy!

For the main part of the frame:

I buy common board…WAYYY cheaper than the fancy wood! (and I’m cheap!) There is whole side of different sizes.

 

see the the 1 last update 2020/07/04 1×4-6ft?? see the 1×4-6ft??

That means its 1 inch thick, 4 inches wide and 6 feet long.

and when I say 1 inch thick…it’s actually 3/4 and when i say 4..it’s really like 3 1/2. (something about when it’s sanded down or something!)

So I like 3 of the 4 inch boards Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for

or the 1 last update 2020/07/04 2 of the 6 inch boards or 2 of the 6 inch boards

or 1 of the 12 inch boards.

(the wider– the more expensive and  when you are trying to nail the three boards together it can be tricky!)

and you can make it as big or small as you want! This one is about 18 inches by 26 inches! 

 

For a craft night I did 2 of the six inch boards–a square…11×11.

and I averaged each frame about $1.75! Pretty cheap for a cute craft!

I buy 6 feet long…because I can fit it in the back of my 4 runner. But they have 10 feet long boards!

If you buy one of the skinny boards for the frame and one 6 inch wide board…you are going to get a least two frames (unless you go BIG!)

 

AND…did you know that Home Depot cuts wood for you? So if the cutting part scares you than take a measuring tape and pencil there and have them get ur done.

But since I’m scared of the chop saw…I use my makita jigsaw–It’s handheld and I use it cut everything! Just measure out and cut! (and wear safety glasses–no matter how unstylish they are!) Cut your middle main boards however long you want. Then you are going to want to cut two of the skinny wood so it matches the height of the frame. Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Keeping it all together you measure across the two pieces of wood you have cut and the inside piece to find the length and cut two more pieces for the top and bottom.
Keep in mind that these frames are meant to be “rustic” Which is why it’s not all fancy mitered corners. Some of the wood might not be super straight… It might not match up perfect…And THAT’s OKAY! Life is too short for that crap! After it’s all cut..I lay out to find the best sides and………..
the 1 last update 2020/07/04  paint or stain! (You can actually assemble before hand…but it’s so much easier to paint in pieces!)

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Let’s talk STAIN! I love the look of stain. I thought I would share some of my favorite colors!

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for  

1. is Jacobean from Minwax.

2 is Espresso from Minwax (my favorite–Jacobean is a little darker and Espresso is a bit warmer)

3. Espresso from general finishes. (I just wanted to show you how much darker it was even though it’s the same name as the minwax one!)

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for 4. Classic gray from Minwax

 

here is the gray…It’s very pretty!  for 1 last update 2020/07/04 and remember that each wood takes stain totally different!!! 

And paint is always fun! Lots of colors…or patterns! So many options!

after it’s all painted…

Time to nail this baby together!

I used this…

It’s AMAZING! and loud. But it works so quickly! You can easily hammer in nails if you don’t have a brad nailer…but if you have a TON to do …this makes it go fast!  (this is what happens when I ask husband to take a picture of me!)

I has to be pressed into the wood to shoot…which is awesome because I’m sure I would have shot myself in the foot or leg 12 times by now if it didn’t have this safety feature!

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for okay–The more boards in the frame…it’s a little more tricky and hard to hold in place. I start with the pieces of the frames that are flush–that way you can match up the larger piece exactly. For each piece of wood, it needs two nails.

If you do one nail the board can move while you are nailing in the other pieces and make it wonky! Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for If you find this for 1 last update 2020/07/04 tricky you can hot glue it to hold it in place while you are nailing!If you find this tricky you can hot glue it to hold it in place while you are nailing!

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for you need to add a nail in each arrow. I do one side (the side of the frame that doesn’t overhang)  flip. other side.  Then top and bottom making sure it’s even!

See the blue arrows…? That is where you will need to add nails. It connects the frames together!

The nice thing about these frames is that it’s a rustic look. (aka…not perfect!) So you can just leave those nail holes! No need to putty!

 

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for When you are done the back should be totally flush…. the 1 last update 2020/07/04 So TECHNICALLY you could do something on both sides! (I couldn’t decide what background to do on my nutcracker so I made it two sides to see what photographed better (the things bloggers do!) 

 

If you want to hang…I totally recommend these sawtooth picture hangers! Just hammer them in! (they are super cheap!)

After it’s all assembled is when I Distress it. Sand the edges of the frame. the 1 last update 2020/07/04 Sometimes I add some brown to the light colors…

and Sometimes I the 1 last update 04 Jul 2020 don’t.and Sometimes I don’t.
