Easy DIY Wood Plaque Picture Frames


I'm part of a group that does a challenge each month, which revolves around a particular craft supply or item. This month it was metallic paint. So shiny! I used metallic paint to help create these adorable DIY picture frames (which could also be used to hold notes or small printables)!
These could not be easier to make! Start off with one of the most basic and inexpensive craft supplies around - unfinished wooden plaques.
Paint the edges of the plaques. Here's where I used gorgeous shades of metallic paints. You can see the exact paints used right here: http://www.averageinspired.com/2016/02/diy-wood-plaque-picture-frames-monthly-diy-challenge.html
Use Mod Podge to apply colorful scrapbook paper to the plaques.
Glue metal clips to the plaques so that you can display photos on them!
Display your cute new frames and enjoy!
For more information on this project, a complete supply list (including exact materials used and tips on how to attach the metal clips), and eight other fabulous metallic paint projects, please visit my blog at the link below. Thank you!

    How do you deal with the odd angle to screw on the clips?

    • Hi! So sorry for the delayed response! I use TOTALLY strong glue that is my absolute favorite! It is amazing. Bonds practically anything. Link to the specific product is in the blog post.

    won't the clip come off when you press down to insert a photo or a memo?

    I like the idea of a recipe holder!

    I would have also painted the clip with gold, silver or matching metallic paint.
    Great project, I really like it! Thanks for sharing.
