Picture Frame Wall – Video Transcript

Hi we’re the GEM Sisters. And today for Modern Homemakers we’re going to show you how to make a DIY Picture Frame Wall. We made this picture frame wall for our new talk show So Chatty. And it only takes 6 easy steps.

To make your DIY picture frame wall all you need is:
Measuring Tape
Paper Bags
Masking Tape
Nails AND Hammer
And Spray Paint, if it matches your style.
Let’s get started!

First you need to choose your fames. We wanted a mismatched look so we bought frames at different stores & garage sales. Be sure to choose frames of all shapes & sizes.

Next you want to trace each frame onto a paper bag. This is the fun part. Cutting it out! Be sure to label each frame so you can remember which one it is later..

STEP THREE – Arrange Frames
We measured the wall then, and arranged the frames on the floor. Be bold. Go wild. Put different shapes and sizes next to each other. Keep moving the frames around until you get the look you want.

Spray Paint. This step is optional depending on your decor. We wanted to make our picture frame wall with all different neon colors. If you do choose to spray paint make sure it’s in a well ventilated area and always ask an adult for help.

STEP FIVE – Tape paper frames on wall.
The next step is really important to getting the look you want. Take the traced paper frames and tape them to the wall in your new cute design. You will need your tape measure to get the exact spacing between frames. You can adjust frames until it looks perfect!

STEP SIX – Hang frames on wall.

You take the paper off and ta-da! Your frame is right where you want it. Here’s how our frame wall turned out! Now that you’re done you have a whole new project to start… Choosing pictures.That’s easy… Just use pictures of me.
