Picture Frame Board


  • ½ inch MDF board cut to 12x12 inches.
  • 1 piece scrapbooking paper

    Picture Frame Board


  1. First, decide how you want to hang your finished picture board. Drill a hole in the back with an angle slightly up if you just want it to hang flat against the wall.
  2. Paint the edges of your board with a paint color of your choice. Let dry for a few minutes.

  3. Using mod podge as glue, glue the 12x12 piece of scrap booking paper on to your board making sure that the edges all match up nicely.

  4. Wrap sandpaper around something square, I used a little note book. Lightly sand the edges making sure not to sand the paint off.

  7. Using scrapbooking adhesive, secure picture to board.
  8. Hang on wall. It is really cute to make 9 coordiating boards and hand them in a square with about a 3 inch space between them all. It would also be great to hand 3 of these above a baby’s crib. so many options!!
