DIY Farmhouse Inspired Wood Picture Frames

Today I am going to show you how I made these here DIY wood picture frames! This is a simplified way to do it that doesn’t require any special angled cuts! This would be the perfect beginner wood working project as well!!!

I made these farmhouse picture frames for my sister in law when we made over her formal living room (more on that soon!)! She had these beautiful family pictures taken but unfortunately they were formatted at sizes that were not made for standard frames! Instead of having to crop the photos themselves we just made custom frames to fit the pictures instead!! This is also a very budget friendly way to add large frames to your own home!! Frames larger than 8 x 10 inches can get pretty prices so this is the thrifty way to add large frames to your home for those most loved family photos! Or even posters to create custom art!

  1. Thank you Haley for your help with the free scripture printables and diy frames. My daughter and her hubby have a wonderful family with 5 kiddos. They are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and I’m searching for decorating ideas and feeling my heart leading towards hanging scripture. Of course much of their time together is in the kitchen; so blessed is it for children (and their parents) to have this encouragement as they start and end their day? 🙂 This is so ordained that even the wood for the frames is repurposed from the trim they are replacing in their new kitchen! Thank you again! May His abounding love and grace fill you today and all of the days to come. Laura

    1. What a blessing thank you so much for sharing this sweet story with me! I appreciate it more than you know!

  2. I?d like to make this type of frame for a canvas painting. What adjustments would I need to make for this to work? The canvas is about 1? thick.

    1. You would just need to change the dimensions to fit your canvas frame.You can buy the wood in about 6-8 ft lengths so you can custom cut them to fit your specific canvas. You could also make the frame a little smaller so that it actually rests on the front around the edges if that makes sense. Either way the great thing about this project is you can just custom cut your framing wood to work for your project! let me know if you have any further questions as you get going! I’d be happy to help!

  3. Would this work for a mirror as well? I haven’t found any posts detailing this type of frame with a mirror.
