Follow this quick video, or read the step-by-step directions below:

  1. First, lay your paint sticks on the canvas, mark the edge, and cut. Started with the top piece of the frame. Scored with a large wire cutter and snapped the paint stick. Once cut Sand the cut edge if it is rough. Next, cut the 2 side pieces, to create legs let your side pieces hang down the bottom of the canvas for about 3 inches. Use the handle end of the paint stick that has the arched cutouts for a decorative leg. For the last piece, place the side pieces on the canvas, and measured the space between them for the bottom frame piece. Repeat this for the second frame.
  2. Apply the Waverly antique wax or any other finish you wish. Let dry.
  3. Print out your art or grab mine from the link below.
  4. Use Mod Podge to glue art to the canvas panels. Use an old gift card or scraper to smooth out any bubbles and excess mod podge. Let dry.
  5. Use the Waverly wax and a baby wipe to distress the edges of the art.
  6. Use a glue gun to attach your frame to the canvas panels.
  7. Use a chip brush to add some white and black streaks to add distressing and a pop of color to frames and edges of art. 
  8. To create the hinge, lay the canvas panels, back side up, with top edges touching. Lay 2 lines of glue about an inch on the sides of each canvas. Lay a 2-inch piece of jute connecting the two canvas panels.
  9. To keep the frame from sliding out from the bottom create a locking hinge with a 3” piece of jute, glue it to the inside bottom middle of one canvas then fold the frame and glue it to the other canvas’ inside bottom
  10. Last, add ribbon, raffia, leaves, etc to your liking to decorate the top corner of the frames.
