DIY Large Wall Art With Wood Frame
We have a large blank wall in our guest bedroom that's been begging for attention. I found an incredible tapestry and set out to make a large piece of wall art from it. A year later--it was still sitting in our closet! But finally, we got around to this simple DIY project!

1. Determine your measurements. If you like the size of your tapestry as is, subtract 3" from the top and bottom measurements and 6" from the height to determine the sizes you need for your wood backing.2. Cut the backing for your tapestry out of 1x2 common pine boards. If you want some tips on selecting the right boards, read our wood sizing and selection guide.
3. Drill a pocket hole on each end of your 3 height 1x2s.4. Screw your height 1x2s into your width 1x2s using 1.25" Kreg screws.
5. Grab your tapestry and begin stapling it to your backing.
6. Cut one side of your select pine 1x2 to 45-degrees.7. Lay your large wall art down on a flat surface and place the 1x2 you cut in step 1 on the top of the canvas as you would if you were framing it. Line up the mitered side with the edge of the canvas then mark the other side to where you need to cut.8. Cut the second side of your 1x2. Test the measurement by lining it up on the top of your canvas. If the measurement is correct, repeat this exact measurement on another board.9. Repeat with the other two sides until you have 4 pieces that fit perfectly together.10. Place your canvas on an elevated surface.11. Position the boards and clamp them in place.12. Nail your frame to the 1x2s that the art is stapled to.
