Framing a paint by numbers kit using a DIY frame can be a great way to display your completed artwork. Here are some general steps to follow:
- DIY frame kit (includes frame pieces and instructions)
- Paint by numbers kit
Complete the paint by numbers kit: Follow the instructions that came with your paint by numbers kit to complete the artwork.
Cut the canvas: Use scissors to carefully cut the canvas along the outer edge of the painted area, leaving a small border around the edge.
Assemble the frame: Follow the instructions that came with your DIY frame kit to assemble the frame pieces.
Attach the canvas: Place your canvas face-down on a clean, flat surface. Position the frame face-down on top of the canvas, making sure it is centered and level. Use tape to attach the canvas to the back of the frame, making sure it is taut and centered.
Add backing (optional): If you want to add a backing to your framed artwork, you can use tape to attach a piece of cardboard or foam board to the back of the frame.
Hang your framed artwork: Use a hammer and nails to hang your framed artwork on the wall. Make sure to use a level to ensure it is straight.
