Learn how to make DIY clip frames using wood shapes and clips! Decorate with your favorite papers and Mod Podge. Such an EASY project.
Hello there, fellow Mod Podgers! It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, and I’m thrilled to be here today sharing another tutorial with you all!
When I found these plain, wooden shapes at Joann’s the other day, I knew they’d make perfect frames for displaying pictures of my kids. I used scrapbook paper for mine, but leftover fabric would work as well!
DIY Clip Frame
Gather These Supplies
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Wood shapes (I found mine at Jo-Ann)
- Craft knife
- Foam brush
- Scrapbook paper
- Metal clips or clothespins
Decide on your design, and cut your scrapbook paper to cover your shape. I chose a simple design using three coordinating pieces of paper, but you could easily do stripes, squares, or anything you can come up with.
Don’t worry about cutting the paper to fit your shape, that’s where the X-Acto knife will come in!
Step 1: Apply a coat of Mod Podge to your shape, and adhere your pieces. The one below on the left shows the front of one of my shapes, the one on the right shows what the back looks like.
Step 2: Take your craft knife and (carefully!) cut around the shapes. If you don’t have a craft knife, scissors should work for this step. I don’t have a picture of this step . . . turns out you really should use both hands when working with a craft knife. 🙂
Step 3: Apply 2 – 3 coats of Mod Podge to seal, allowing your frames to dry well in between coats.
Step 4: Attach your clips or clothespins with E-6000.
And there you have it! An easy and customizable way to display photos of your favorite people . . .
