Make your own industrial galvanized metal hanging frame!
So I’ve been on a picture frame kick. We were cleaning out a cabinet and I found all our lovely family photos (by our friends Cadence & Eli) and I realized I hadn’t hung any of them up yet. All the photos on our walls were still without Baby V. So it was time! I grabbed this totally cute galvanized metal hanging frame thing at the craft store and decided it would become a frame. (If you’re looking for these in the craft store, they’re in the same aisle as the unfinished wood.) Here’s how I made this quick and easy galvanized metal hanging frame…
Industrial Galvanized Metal Hanging Frame
Piece of thin cardboard or posterboard
Scrap of fabric
Wood scraps or pieces of foam board to use as spacers
- First I cut a piece of posterboard the same size as the inside of the frame. 2. Then I cut a scrap of fabric that was about 1/2 inch wider on each side. I laid the fabric face down and centered the posterboard on top. Then while gently pulling it taut, I neatly glued the fabric to the back. (I used fabric because this fabric matches Baby V’s nursery. But you could certainly also use scrapbook paper or something similar!) 3. Then I cut the photo down a little, centered it on the fabric and glued it down. 4. At this point I realized that if I just glued the photo in as is, the knots from the twine would be in front of it. So I grabbed some little scraps of craft wood (leftover from this project) and glued a couple stacks into the metal frame so the photo would float closer to the front of the frame. Then I glued the photo on top of that. And that’s it! Doesn’t this make a cute little industrial hanging frame? It’s going to look so adorable in Baby V’s gallery wall!
