Materials needed for DIY Framed Canvas:

  • Canvas (store bought or freshly printed)
  • Staple Gun
  • Cordless Nail Gun 
  • 1 “x 2″ Pine Wood sized to your print, (my print is 30″ x 40”.)
  • 1″ x 1/4″ Barnwood (or stained pine) sized to print.



Note: If you painted a canvas that is already assembled (stapled) or purchased one, then skip the first few steps and start at step 4.)

Step 1: Build frame to size of your print; simply brad nail (4) pieces of 1 “x 2” pine wood to form frame as pictured in video.

Step 2: Lay canvas print side down. Set frame on top. 

Step 3: Fold over edges of one side of the canvas and secure with staple gun. Pull tight and staple adjacent side. Repeat with other 2 sides.

Step 4. Flip canvas over and build another frame! Measure sides of wrapped canvas and cut (4) pieces of wood according to size. Reference video for visual but you can see the wood butts up against the canvas nicely.

That’s it. Add hardware and enjoy your canvas spruced up + ready to hang in any space of your home! 🙂 

Psst! This print is on sale until 3/22/18!
