How to Build a Picture Frame from Recycled Wood
Recycled wooden frame picture
Prepare four pieces of old wood of a width about 2 inches (5.1 cm) across.The length should be the height and width that you want the picture frame to be. The wood can come from sources such as old frames, old furniture, old wooden items, etc.
- If you can't cut wood yourself, have a hardware store do it to your required measurements. You may need to make a token payment for the help.
Place the two longer lengths of wood on the work surface.Glue the ends, then place the width sides on top of the longer lengths. Overlap the wood, to make it interesting to look at.
Cut a cardboard backing for the back of the frame.Glue to the back of the frame on three sides but leave the top edge unstuck. This allows room for you to slide in the picture.
Decorate the frame.Personalize the frame with your choice of designs. Suggestions include:
- Use markers to add stripes, spots or patterns
- Use glitter to add color
- Glue wooden cut-outs to the frame.
Slide in the picture.Done.
Turning a wood pallet into a picture frame
This is a really basic frame. It has no angles or layers but if you are handy with wood tools, you could make if fancier, provided you know what you're doing.
Find a pallet or pallet wood pieces.If using wood direct from the pallet, remove pieces for using in the frame. Choose four pieces to form the frame, and ensure that they are all long enough.
- Have some spare pieces; these can be added on as extra embellishment or used if you make a mistake with another piece.
Decide on the frame size.Choose the measurements and use these to guide the sawing of the wood.
Cut the wood pieces to size.Following the chosen measurements, saw the wood pieces into both the width and length you're after for the frame.
Push the wood through a skip planer (or have someone experienced do this for you).This will even the sizing of each piece of wood.
Form the frame square on a flat surface.Glue the four pieces together at each intersection where they meet.
- Use clip clamps to hold the pieces together tightly. Aim for a very neat and close fit at each corner; the clamps will help apply the needed pressure.
- Leave until the glue is fully dried before removing the clamps.
Apply varnish or shellac to the surface of the frame.If you would like to decorate it, do this either instead of varnishing or in addition to.
- The frame can also be painted one or more colors; it depends on whether you'd like the natural wood look or you'd like it to be painted.
Glue a thick piece of card to the back, leaving the top section unglued.The picture will slide in from the top. Add a hanger or a cardboard stand to the back.
Slide in the picture.All done!
