DIY frames are always fun because they are more personal and show a little bit more heart than store bought ones. Being way, way cheaper than their commercial counterparts don’t hurt either! For this project, you’ll need the following:

  • Wooden boards
  • Steel clips
  • Something to stain wood if you want to go for the weathered look
  • Sandpaper
  • Photos

Buy wood boards from a local craft store or upcycle some old, unused planks at home

You can use a walnut stain to make it darker and more weathered. Here’s a video on how to apply your own walnut stain. Make sure to sand it down as well to complete the look! Let it dry.

Attach the steel clips near the top of the wood board and voila!
