How to Frame Huge Prints Inexpensively

We had a huge blank beige wall in the sunroom that needed color. Color on something big. I glued a wood frame to a plywood board, Mod Podged prints to the board an then painted the frame. The result: big color! Affordable too. More details in the blog post.

Mod Podge the art onto the wood board or even thick chipboard.

I painted the frame turquoise, and painted the exposed plywood backing a lime color. This step requires very close supervision by Crafty Cat. I think I did okay.
The final result!
I have colorful glass bottles hanging on the wall next to the prints.

    What exactly is Mod Podge? Basically you are gluing the prints to the wood? This is an excellent idea.

      You could also use a beautiful piece of fabric to frame using Mod Podge.

    did you paint the board before you glued the artwork?
