Make this cute hanging picture frame with just a few supplies! DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com

If you are new here, you should know, one of my favorite things to do is wander the craft store aisles and just see what sparks my imagination. And simultaneously I am on a quest to figure out what to do with all those amazing laser cut wood shapes they’re selling nowadays. (That makes me sound like an old fogey but seriously up until 2-3 years ago, they only sold really standard boring wood shapes) So the last time I was there (child free, if you can believe it! ) I happened upon some galvanized metal items. And I grabbed this round thing with a twine hanger that I thought looked like a tart tin. But it was actually labeled “bottle cap”. So then I stood in the aisle for like five minutes trying to figure out what someone would want with a giant hanging metal bottle cap. Do you really like soda or beer? Or maybe it’s for people like me who just like the shape and want to use it for some un-bottle related reason? I don’t know. But it happened to perfectly fit with a round laser cut wood frame I had also put in my basket so I decided to bring it home. And this adorable little hanging picture frame was born! This was a quick and easy but satisfying project, the kind of thing that would be perfect for craft night with friends! Here’s how I made it:

Galvanized metal bottle cap

Round laser cut wood frame

Acrylic craft paint

Hot glue gun

1. First, paint your wood frame. I chose a light robin’s egg blue. It took 2 coats.DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com

2. Then lay your photo behind the frame and mark where to cut it. I drew inside the circle shape with a sharp pencil and then cut about 1/8″ outside of that line.DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com

3. Glue the photo carefully to the back of the frame.DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com

4. Use a couple tiny dabs of hot glue to glue the frame inside the metal shape where they touch.DIY Metal Hanging Picture Frame Tutorial! | littleredwindow.com
