DIY Dowel Frame

DIY Dowel Frame

Photos. Prints. Artwork. Textile. Posters.

Regardless of your version of art, mount the piece in a simplistic manner with contemporary style. Creating your own dowel frame focalizes the piece on display while leaving room for personalization. Choose a wood: dark or natural, polished and painted or backyard fresh. Ensure there are two pieces of equal length, snag the correct resources from a local craft store, and create a personalized frame for the artwork of choice!

You will need:
  • 2 pieces of wood, equal in length and width
  • Double sided tape (photo quality) or command strips (for maximum preservation)
  • 2 small eyelet hooks
  • Cardstock, for backing protection 
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure

Begin by cutting a piece of cardstock similar in size to the piece being displayed: same in length, but an inch smaller in width. To assemble, place the piece of artwork for display right side up. Choose which wood piece will be the top of the frame, and screw in two eyelet hooks into the top quadrant. Tie a piece of string at desired length to both eyelet holes.

Place the tape or strips along the entirety of the back quadrant of the wood pieces (ensuring the eyelet hooks are facing up on the top piece), and carefully place the wood, sticky side down, atop the artwork (one on the top, one on the bottom), leaving no excess material on the top or bottom of the wood. Be careful to place the wood as straight as possible, using a tape measure to make marks if necessary.

Flip the entire piece over carefully, and place the pre-cut cardstock on the back of the artwork, again adhering the top and bottom of the piece to the wooded section, creating a backing for the artwork for protection.

Hang and enjoy!
