DIY Photo Frames

In this article will give you some ideas for handmade picture frames that might appeal to you or inspire you for your own projects.

Rustic picture frame with branches

This framework is very simple to make, and at the same time very effective. The materials that you need are: plain wooden photo frame, wood glue and a few thin branches. Cut branches of approximately equal length pieces, between 2 and 4 cm and glue them at the edges of the front portion of the frame. Try not to align the branches with each other in order to give a natural, rustic form of the frame.

Old window frame
