Run a seal of hot glue all around the edge of your frame making sure the glue stays within the frame track, so it won’t show from the front. I love it!! I saw 8 by 10 floating frames at the discount store for $20 so make sure your old frames are cheap.

Oh cool! Haha! How many inches did you leave around the border? Love this project. Save yourself some stress and don’t do like I did. We are definitely doing this but buying the frame kit/acrylic from amazon then will paint the hardware. The frames came in a pair and I paid $15 for both of them, and they are gorgeous frames, but I purchased a dilemma because the original prints are high quality. I agree- the glue dots may not hold it. I love bright whites, but not losing detail! This was my question too.

It wasn’t fun doing it oh so freaking carefully at the end. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Blog  |  Facebook  |  Instagram  |  Pinterest  |  Twitter, Denise at My Thrifty House!

Please do not remove watermarks, crop or edit my pictures without prior approval. Creating the DIY Floating Frame. This is just gorgeous! Once most of the frame is clean, try to scrub out any tiny crevices with the end of a toothpick.

Next place whatever photo or printable you like on top of the first plate of glass, sandwich the photo with the second piece of glass.

Floating picture frames really lend themselves well to canvas art.

–standoff mounting hardware The good thing about using the hot glue is that it holds the glass nicely, but you can pull it out once cool if needed. Love how sleek this looks! The waves almost look like a fun tye-dye . Sign up for our newsletter and get a FREE Holiday Gift Tags Printable. Absolutely love this Elsie!

I’ve been looking for a photo just like this- do you know if the image would be available for sale? I love this idea and that frame is beautiful. Mark on top of the tape where you want the holes to go.

Is there a way to do this without having to drill the wall? Great project, and more importantly for me (a filmmaker), great video!!!

Hubs and I decided to do an auction at the last minute, and viewing was the day before so I bought these frames from about 40 feet away.

Farmhouse Picture Frame – Easy Wood Working DIY Using Barnwood.

[wc_divider style=”solid” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=””][/wc_divider], Stephanie at Abbotts at Home! First, here’s the video tutorial.

I am not convinced that the glue in the corners of the frame would survive being soaked in water, instead use a toothbrush, toothpicks and half an hour of your time to scrub it clean.

What a wonderful idea and instructions.

So pretty!

The older a person gets the more they realize that home decor has very few new ideas. Alright! Then the finish would be more durable. Clean the glass in a sink of hot soapy water.


Especially in bathrooms with lots of moisture. I didn’t think about the risk of a thinner piece of acrylic splitting when drilled through. What was the thickness of the acrylic sheet you used? I love creating DIY tutorials and crafts to encourage others that you don't have to be rich to have a really pretty home. So pretty! If, your frame allows you, use the original nails to secure the glass in place.

I guess just do the sandwich? Hi Michelle.

Wow!! These 11 by 14-inch frames are the first thing I ever bought at an auction and have been filed away in the storage room for quite awhile.

I wasn’t liking the shiny brass gold but yours look great! Must make asap for a couple of drawing I have laying in folders . 2) Home Depot/ other hardware stores WONT cut it for you. ), Good points! I have admired modern, floating frames from afar, but this is my first time to try to do anything with acrylic. This design is light and airy. My personal taste has nothing to do with the 70’s or 80 revivals, been there done that, i.e. I loveee this! Before you put the glass back in your frame, attach the picture hanger to the back of the frame. Love this! Using narrow transparent tape seal the very edge of the glass on all four sides. Stunning outcome! You guys always have the best DIY’s that look great and are easy to do. I love how it looks against your wall and I love that photo too!!! I absolutely adore this!

So when the Farmhouse Hen’s decided to do a post on frames I knew exactly the frame I wanted to make.

I love how you added the gold leaf to your design!

I really wanted an image that was soft and dreamy, NOT a giant photo of Jeremy and I since it’s in our bathroom/dressing room. It is easier than it looks (seriously, the hardest part is just having the correct supplies), and it looks SO polished and pretty in my dressing room. As a renter, I’d love any tips you all have for hanging art without making holes in the walls. I do have to wonder why you didn’t do this with the Jane Birkin photo in your dining room (or perhaps you did/have?

If you’re using a Canon PIXMA printer, you can just set the print to be borderless in the print setup screen on your computer so you don’t have to trim off any white edges. Thanks!! Thanks!, Thank you Molly! What a beautiful frame! Then rinse your frame under the tap to dislodge any debris. My god woman how did you get it done? Wow, this is an amazing DIY.

They're relatively simple to build and can be as fancy as you like. I’m trying to think of other options. Thanks!

All printables are for personal use only. Although I never dreamed decades of single parenting would develop into blogging.

Love the result! Feel free to share my post and one picture with a link back to my original post.

My frame had the holes visible at the second piece of glass was thinner than the original wood backing.

I’m about to do a shoot in a similar setting.

So worth the half hour it took to refurbish it. I wrote a DIY on this same project earlier this week and used two pieces of acrylic to sandwich together. Thanks for posting it.

I tried this and turned out beautifully.

You know me, the more bling the better. -screws to mount hardware (Remember that the screw head has to be big enough to fit inside the hardware tube that attaches to the wall, so take the hardware with you when you go to buy screws.) Love the floating effect. 2 pieces of identical sized glass to fit in the frame, A picture hanger for the back of the frame.

We didn’t see this same hardware in gold or we would have done that. I’ve noticed a shift in my art taste lately.

That’s awesome. I love that frame! So pretty and modern! Photos edited with A Beautiful Mess actions. Thanks! Awesome thank you so much for posting this! Before you put the glass back in your frame, attach the picture hanger to the back of the frame. That is very exciting. A room without art isn’t a finished space! It looks so good. A Beautiful Mess is a lifestyle blog founded by sisters Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman.

This is such a cool DIY and it looks amazing, but I have two comments/questions: Why not just buy hardware in the color you want, so you don’t have to paint it? What was the thickness of your acrylic piece? This frame is inexpensive to put together and I am hopeful that you already have all the supplies you need on hand. Photos edited with,

I’ve had a real creative kick lately and want to pick up painting more. I absolutely love the gold patina on this old frame, it is so much richer and deeper than the tin looking new ones. It wasn’t fun doing it oh so freaking carefully at the end. Mark where each hole should be drilled (try and be really precise, there’s not a whole lot of wiggle room if the holes are really off), and pre-drill each hole with a small drill bit. The gold hardware really elevates the frame to a piece of art. You could use two pieces of acrylic and sandwich the picture between them, so you don’t have to use glue on the front of the photo. I would love to do this with a small print i have that is white.. will the glue dots show?

The next step is to clean the frame carefully. -piece of acrylic a few inches bigger than your photo (You can get this at most home improvement stores, and they will cut it to size for you.)

Required fields are marked *. I would have literally cried had I cracked the glass. they wanted me to purchase my own glass cutting kit. Sure it might work for this particular piece if you don’t look too close … but surely you can come up with a more polished way of executing this for art that needs to be displayed without damage or grease stains from glue dots … right?? We call ourselves the Farmhouse Hens and you can find their gorgeous posts about frames at the end of my post. -glue dots

So pretty. Love this! By chance does Jeremy remember what camera settings he used? Molly {Dreams in HD} I love this project and dying to try it for a more affordable float frame option. Read more of my story. And going to try it out this weekend! Thank goodness for that, because it gives us creatives an inexpensive way to update our homes.
