Floating Frame DIY

I love crafting and I’m always looking for creative ways to display the things that I’ve made and pieces of artwork that I’ve found. I’ve recently discovered an incredibly easy way to create beautifully minimalist floating frames out of things that you will probably have already lying round your home, and I wanted to share it with you!

All you will need:

2 bulldog clips and 2 matching picture frames

 

You will only need the glass from the picture frames, so they don’t need to be particularly fancy. I chose to use some basic clip frames, which you can find in a variety of sizes in most homeware shops.

Once you’ve removed the glass from each frame you can slot your chosen artwork in between the two panes and use a bulldog clamp on each side to hold them together (whilst, of course, being careful of any sharp edges and taking care not to break the glass!).

That’s it. That’s all you need to do. I told you it was easy!

The frames that I have made are 13cm x 18cm and I only need to use a couple of small bulldog clips. For bigger frames you can use bigger clips, and you may need to use more than 2.

I love how versatile these frames are. They suit a wide range of decor styles because of how minimalist they look. It’s also so quick and easy to swap out what’s inside and they’re a great way to display all kinds of keepsakes. I’ve filled my frames with polaroids, small paintings, pressed flowers and colourful confetti, but the possibilities are endless!

I would love to see what you use your floating frames for. Get in touch and let me know what you come up with!
