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)!

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