Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Start by gathering all the materials you'll need for this project. Choose a wallpaper design that you love and a frame that complements your style. You'll also need scissors, a ruler, a pencil, glass cleaner, and a cloth for cleaning.

Step 2: Measure and Mark

Place your frame face down on a clean, flat surface. Take the piece of wallpaper you've chosen and lay it face down on top of the glass in the frame. Ensure it's centered and covers the glass completely.


Using a pencil and ruler, mark the edges of the glass on the wallpaper. This will serve as a guide for cutting the wallpaper to the correct size.

Step 3: Cut the Wallpaper

Carefully cut along the pencil marks you made in the previous step. Make sure to cut inside the lines to ensure that the wallpaper will fit nicely inside the frame with a nice-sized border of glass around it.

Step 4: Clean the Glass

Before assembling your framed wallpaper art, take a moment to clean the glass inside the frame. Spray a bit of glass cleaner onto the glass and wipe it clean with a cloth. This will ensure that your artwork looks its best once it's framed.

Step 5: Assemble Your Art

Place the cut piece of wallpaper face down on a clean surface. Now, take your frame, remove the back, and carefully place the wallpaper into the frame with the printed side facing the glass. Make sure it's centered and fits snugly inside.

Step 6: Secure the Frame

Put the back of the frame back in place, securing the wallpaper inside. Make sure it's closed tightly to prevent any dust or debris from getting inside.
