I made this cute farmhouse window using only items from Dollar Tree. Find out how I did it!

Hometalk Recommends!

Make your own Farmhouse window with these recommended picture frames that Amazon reviewers swear by!


To make this farmhouse window you will need:

  • 6 picture frames, size 8x10"
  • Garden edging
  • Spray paint
  • Gorilla Glue (or E6000)
  • Drop cloth or old sheet
  • Clamps


Most of these you can get from Dollar Tree. I already had the glue, paint, drop cloth and clamps on hand.

Step 1 - Paint


Lay out all the paint frames and the garden edging on the drop cloth or old sheet. Spray paint everything and leave it all to dry.

Step 2 - Glue and Clamp


After everything has dried, glue the frames together on the long sides. I clamped them together to hold them in place while drying. Let dry.



Step 3 - Glue on the edging


I glued the edging right to the front of my frames, but that's because I cut the stakes off the bottom of it that stick into the ground. I wish I would have left those on and glued them to the back of the frames to make it more sturdy. Live and learn. icon

Step 4 - Hang it


The last step is to hang your farmhouse window up! I added a wreath that I also made from Dollar Tree items.

    Do you think this would hold up as a pretend trellis, against my garage?

  • Jackie Jackie on Aug 13, 2021

    How did you hang it on brick? Amazon does not have that edging. Should it be sprayed with acrylic?

  • Debby Debby on Aug 27, 2021

    How did you make the wreath? Styrofoam ring and fake moss?? How does it hold up in the rain?

    oh my lord the power of the imagination this has given me.. from putting a mirror behind them to joining for in a square to make a cold frame for some plants over the winter to a stained glass frame for the inside of a privacy window.. please dont ask me questions on these ideas .. if you dont have google or pinterest i am sorry but sometimes people just ask silly questions , if your a crafter you create , imagine , try and fail and try again , a bit like life .. its your individual creation make a mistake try again .. thank you for the amazing IDEAS that we can expand at home ourselves ❤️

      I love the idea of the mirror and plants!! And I agree about being a crafter - it's all about creating and sometimes breaking it apart and creating it all over again. 😄 I hope you have a great time imagining and creating! Thank you for sharing!
