DIY Rustic Photo Frames

These Rustic Photo Frames are an easy DIY that anyone can do!

Photo Frames

I started with a 6 ft. piece of rustic, knotty pine that I had Lowe's cut in to four 18-inch boards.

I stained each board with Minwax Wood Stain (Provincial).

I did about three or four rounds with the wood stain - We like dark wood around here.

I waited 48 hours for the stain to dry, etc.
I then used wood glue to adhere two different sets of two boards together.

I nailed the backing for the picture frame onto the board.

I attached sawtooth picture hangers to the back of each set of boards.

I inserted 5 x 7 photos & glass and ta-da - Finished!

Note: If you have small children, make sure you plan to work on this project during naptime.
Or, get a babysitter! I would suggest the latter, but either way - it'll be a hit!
