Craft picture frame ideas are field for the imagination, because you can use a variety of materials and techniques. The simplest method is to paint. Chose a bright color, paint – and a gift ready. If you want something more challenging and beautiful, you can use the techniques of decoupage.

You will need:

- Wooden slats
- Miter box
- Paint
- Brush
- Hooks or thin cloves (for attachment)

Instruction

Step 1: This step is the most difficult in this simple project. You need to cut the moulding into four pieces, one for each side of the frame. To do this, use a handsaw.
Use a mitre box and a handsaw to cut the end of each piece to a 45-degree angle. The mitre box allows the piece of wood to be held firmly and will guide the saw so that it cuts at the correct angle.

Step 2:  Lay the cut frame pieces out onto a flat work surface and arrange them so that they form a frame.
Use wood glue and corner clamps to join the corner sections of the frame. Apply the wood glue along the cut edges, press the pieces together, and hold the pieces in place with a corner clamp. Glue and clamp all four corners.

Step 4: Turn the frame over so that the back is facing up. Apply two V nails along each glued corner seam with a hammer. Pace one nail toward the inside edge of the frame and the other toward the outer edge. The midpoint of the nail should rest on the seam and the open portion of the V should be pointed toward the inside edge of the frame.
Remove the clamps and allow the frame to dry overnight.
