How to create a gorgeous, high-end looking DIY picture frame in minutes! No glass, no power tools, no worries! Super fast & totally fabulous!
Handmade gifts are the very best kind, don’t you think? And a DIY picture frame is perfect for *almost* any occasion! I’m all about a good DIY, and I’m even more about easy ones – which is why this one is pretty perfect all the way around.
I get the look of a high-end boutique, but also get the joy of making it myself – it’s a definite win/win in my book!
If you’re looking to make a DIY Picture Frame without glass, this is the project for you.
Or maybe you’re looking to make one for a friend… yep, it’s still for you.
Or if you’ve been wondering how to make a DIY picture frame with clips (and without pulling out a power saw), you guess it, I’ve got you.

You’ll also need:
- small metal clip
- one small screw
- a screw driver
- Start by attaching the clip to one half of the frame by using the screw and screw driver.
- Next, use a fuzzing cloth or kitchen towel to give the transfer a light layer of lint to keep it from sticking too firmly to the sign. Because transfers are reusable, if you have to pull too hard to remove it, the design will warp. A thin layer of lint ensures that your transfer will peel off perfect for the next use.
- Using a squeegee, put on a layer of Chalkology Paste, then scrape off the excess and put it back into the pot for the next use.
- Remove the transfer by peeling from right to left (or top to bottom) and then let dry.
- To clean the transfer, use cleaning wipes to clean both sides, then let dry face down before returning to the backing paper for storage until your next use.
