How do I reglue a picture frame?
Here's an article from Hunker that should help you fix it permanently. Wishing you the best.
Is it the corners that have come loose?
Trevya: I swear by Gorilla Super Glue Gel for many things. I would use it in this case too. "Babysit" it for about 10 minutes... holding the corner together.
You will need right angle clamps first before you re-glue it back up. Something like this:
Then you will use wood glue. Good luck!
Hi Trevya: I"d use either E-6000 or clear Gorilla glue. Before putting the 2 parts together, let them sit for about 15 seconds to a bit tacky and then stick them together. Clamp, or hold for about a minute and then leave it alone for 24 hours. That should do it. Good luck
What ever type of glue you use some picture frame corner clamps would be handy. That way the frame will be held tightly in place until the glue dries.
Lay newspaper on to a flat work area. Place the wood pieces in the correct position before clamping or gluing. The edge of the mitered wood is cut at a forty-five degree angle. The wood pieces make a ninety-degree angle in each corner of the frame once placed together.
Practice using the clamp if you have never used one before. Place the clamps on each corner of the picture frame. Slowly tighten the clamp. Use the carpenter's square to make certain the angle stays at a ninety-degree angle.
Loosen and remove the clamps. Apply the wood glue to the mitered ends. Carefully place the ends together. Wipe any excess glue away with the rag.
Place the clamps on one corner of the frame, slowly tightening until the clamps are firmly in place. The glue makes it slippery, so use caution. Use the carpenter's square to ensure a ninety-degree angle as you tighten each one.
Allow to sit 24 hours with the clamps in place, allowing the glue to dry. Remove the clamps once the glue dries.
I would use clear non-foaming gorilla glue
Use a wood glue and you might need clamps to hold it together while it dries.
You could use wood glue
