D.I.Y. Photo Frame

What could you do with a wood panel like this?

You can turn it into a photo frame!


  • 1 Wood Panel
  • 1 8 x 10 Photo
  • A Spool of 1 1/2" Ribbon
  • 1 Sheet of Decorative Paper
  • Vinyl Words "Giggles Friends Joy"
  • 527 Multi-Use Glue
  • Americana Acrylic Paint in Lamp (Ebony) Black
  • Paintbrush

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.  
1.  Using the paintbrush, apply black paint to the entire frame of the wood panel. Set aside and let dry.
2.  Cut the ribbon into a 30" length.
3.  Use adhesive to glue the middle part of the ribbon completely flat to the panel. We glued ours a little halfway down the panel. 

4.  Apply adhesive to the back of the decorative paper and adhere it to the panel. You will be gluing the paper on top of the ribbon.
5.  Cut the photo to fit the inside top area of the panel.
6.  Apply adhesive to the back of the photo and adhere it to the top part of the panel.
7.  Apply the vinyl words to the paper. 
8.  Take ends of the ribbon to tie it loosely into a double knot to make the ends appear as if it's a bow.

9.  Proudly display in an area of your home.
