How to Create a Beautiful Photo Print Hanger

Are you looking for ways to add more of a personal touch to your home? There are plenty of options. A beautiful canvas print or framed photos of the people you love are a great place to start. However, if you’re looking for something unique, why not create your own frame to hang your prints?

Here’s how to do it!

What you’ll need:

  • A selection of your favourite photos print them here
  • Timber for your frame (we used three lengths of 9.5mm Balsa wood from Lincraft)
  • Hot glue gun and refills
  • Twine
  • Mini timber pegs
  • Staple gun

Step 1: Place and mark up your frame

For our project, we’ve used three lengths of Balsa wood to make up a triangle. It is up to you as to the shape of your frame, but once you have decided on the layout, put your timber in place and lightly mark up the edges. This is important as you will need to move and replace your timber when you’re doing the next step – gluing.

Step 2: Glue your frame together

Make sure you’ve let your hot glue gun get warm first! Generously apply the glue across the whole area where the timber will sit when they are placed together.

Once you have applied the glue, put the second piece of timber back in place. Ensure that you apply pressure for 15-30 seconds until you’re sure it has dried.

Repeat this until you’ve completed gluing all corners of your frame.

Step 3: Measure out and attach twine

Once your frame has been glued and dried turn it over to the back side of the frame. Take your roll of twine and measure out the required lengths for where you will place it on the frame. For our example we have used three rows of twine, one close to the top, one placed a little further down and the final piece just past half way down the frame.

Take your staple gun and attach your twine to each side of your frame. Ensure that the twine is pulled tight before you attach the second side.

Step 4: Add the finishing touches

Place on your pegs and attach your photos evenly along the length of twine.

Now you have an easy to change photo print hanger for your home!
