Easy DIY Picture Frame You Can Make WITHOUT Power Tools
This DIY picture frame is so easy to make. No sawing or power tools required. It looks great and is such an affordable option, especially for framing large prints! Follow the step-by-step tutorial to learn how to make your own.
Hello friends! Do you struggle to find picture frames that you love AND can afford? I know I do, especially when it comes to framing large art and photos. A couple of years ago I showed you how to create your own large-scale art for around $10.00. And I have several tutorials for how to make art/picture frames, like this one that uses 1 x 2 pine boards or this one that uses reclaimed wood. But both of those require power tools. Well, now I am SUPER excited to show you how to frame any artwork or pictures without any sawing or cutting AND for less than $20!
The best thing about this DIY picture frame tutorial is that literally, anyone can do it! You do not need any power tools. You don’t even need a hand saw. You do need a heavy-duty stapler, but you could probably even do without that in a pinch! I am going to show you how to create a DIY picture frame for large-scale art (but you can certainly use this same method to make most any size frame)!
I love large scale graphic art for many reasons. Most importantly, I love it because it allows you to decorate a large wall for very, very little money. But, as cheaply as you can make the prints themselves, I discovered that framing them out could be expensive or challenging for people to do themselves. NOT ANYMORE! I have discovered the easiest secret in the whole world for doing this yourself with very little money and even less effort.

Supplies Needed for DIY Picture Frame
Steps to Make DIY Picture Frame
1) Paint or stain your canvas stretcher bars. For this particular frame, I used Enchanted Evening by Clark+Kensington. After it dried, I used some Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Relic (a dark gray color) to dry brush some gray color on for added texture and interest.
2) Flip your painted canvas stretcher bars over after the paint has dried. Then assemble your frame by gluing and pushing the corners together. It could not be easier! I used DAP Rapid Fuse to glue the corners of the frame together.
3) After the glue dries (DAP Rapid Fuse dries super quickly–it's one of the things I love most about it), place your photo or print inside the back of the frame and staple it in place. You can see how we mount our large prints in this post.
4) Screw small eye hooks on the backside of each vertical piece of your frame and then run your picture hanging through both eyes, leaving a generous amount of excess wire so that you can twist the excess wire around the ends to secure it in place.
That’s it! I told you that was easy, huh? Check out the final product! With the print AND frame, this huge 36 x 48-inch art came in right at $30.

How Much Is Custom Framing? | Real Life Examples From $30 to $430
How much is it going to cost to frame my piece? It's the most common question we hear at Artists Frame Service and one for which there is no simple answer. When you have thousands of options to choose from, it's challenging to know how much a particular project will be until you sit down with a framer.
So today, we're doing just that. Since so many variables affect the final cost, we thought the easiest way to break it down would be to give a few real life examples. The goal? Show that three pieces of similarly sized art can cost as little as $30 or as much as you have in your budget.
Our pieces that need framing include a 16x24 neutral abstract print, a 20x28 black and white graphic poster and a 20x28 lovely light purple sketch drawing.
The abstract print was simple and beautiful and we knew we wanted a light wood frame to draw out the colors. We selected one of the ready made gallery frames for $30.
And because we wanted to add a little more space around the drawing, we also opted to add a bright white custom mat. (Many people choose to get just the frame, however.) This really made it pop - we often do these "kinda custom" experiences for those looking to frame standard size pieces quickly and easily.
Total cost: $75.
For the second piece, we opted to do the Poster Special. Something super cool that not a lot of people realize is that we actually have a whole wall of overstock moulding choices that can be used for this special framing deal. The frame doesn't have to be just plain black or white.
We selected a dark walnut frame for this one to contrast the graphic black and white and framed the print without a mat right to the edges.
Total cost: $129. (Learn more about our poster special here.)
On the final piece, we decided to invest a little more to enhance the simplicity of the drawing with a spectacular, hand-finished gold leaf custom frame. We especially love that the frame has a brushstroke quality that highlights the brushstrokes in the art.
A really special touch we added was a gold painted bevel on the inside of the mat. This is an accent all painted by hand in our framing facility and makes the finished product feel extra luxe.
We also opted for standard UV protective glass - choosing museum glass (often referred to as the Cadillac of glass) would have added $200 to the cost. Because this piece wasn't very reflective and it wasn't going to hang in a spot with direct sunlight, the standard glass works just fine. (These are choices your framing consultant can guide you through during the process.)
Total cost: $430
The finished products! Each one turned out amazing and is unique in its own way.
There's a common perception that you can't custom frame (or "kinda custom" frame) anything without dropping hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Yet, because of our vast selection, special offers and trained consultants, we'll get you home with a piece you love that fits your budget - whatever that might be.

twitter announced today that it will be removing its implementation of stories dubbed “fleets.” the feature was either loved or hated by twitter users since its initial release last year.
this short-lived feature, which was released in november of last year, will be removed on august 3. twitter acknowledged the controversial nature of the snapchat/instagram clone with the farewell tweet. notably, there was no fleet from the main twitter account announcing the departure of the feature, only a standard tweet.
in the goodbye, the company said it is working on “new stuff.” one can hope that they add the ability to edit tweets, in addition to the new edit audience and monetization features.
in a more detailed blog post, twitter shared that it hoped fleets would make people more comfortable posting onto twitter. as fleets disappear, some of the fleet creation features, like gifs and stickers, will be implemented into the standard tweets composer.

Online custom picture frames that are easy, affordable, & fast!
We built our website to provide the simplest and best framing experience possible. You upload an image, we print and frame it, and you receive a high-quality ready-to-hang frame in the mail at an unbeatable price. In order to keep providing this great service, we have a few rules for what kind of content we accept to print and frame.
In the simplest words possible: you need to have the rights to reproduce every single image you upload into our website (or otherwise share with us for the purpose of printing) in order for us to be able to print it.
By uploading an image into our website (or otherwise sharing it with us for the purpose of printing), you certify that:
- You have all of the necessary rights required to use the image without infringing upon or violating the rights of any third party. These rights include but are not limited to trademarks, copyrights, patents, rights of privacy, rights of publicity, and moral rights.
- The image is not unlawful in any way and does not violate any applicable rule, regulation, or another person's privacy.
- The image is not obscene, hateful, libelous, threatening, or slanderous.
By uploading an image into our website (or otherwise sharing it with us for the purpose of printing), you further agree that that:
- You will indemnify and release Frame It Easy from all liability (including attorney's fees and legal costs) for any claims related to the infringement of any third party's rights by the reproduction by Frame It Easy of the image you upload into our website or share with us for the purpose of printing (whether said claims are alleged or actual).
By uploading an image into our website (or otherwise sharing it with us for the purpose of printing), you certify that you understand:
- Frame It Easy reserves the right to review the image, but receives many such images and cannot always review each one individually.
- Frame It Easy takes no ownership of the content you upload or share with us for the purpose of printing.
- Frame It Easy reserves the right to delete any uploaded or shared file which falls into one or more of the categories forbidden above, and refuse to fulfill any associated order.
- If your image is not blurry and was taken in average lighting conditions with a relatively modern camera, your print is very likely to come out beautiful. If your image is taken with an older camera, or is blurry, or is taken in dark lighting conditions, it may look differently printed than it does on your screen. This is because all screens (unless professionally calibrated) will display images differently. Frame It Easy stays as true as possible to your photo by printing it exactly as we receive it: we do not edit it, nor do we apply any of our own color profiles to it. If your photo was taken in unusual conditions or with unusual equipment and you are concerned about the print quality, please reach out to us and we would be happy to answer all of your questions and help you to get the best print possible.
