DIY Window Picture Frame

Hi Friends, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with family and friends!

This Christmas, I made my mother a picture frame with an old window I picked up on the side of the road. I thought I’d share how I made it 🙂

Materials :

Old window

Photos {I used old black and white family photos}


Krazy Glue

Staple Gun


{Step One} Clean the window and figure out the placement of the pictures. The pictures I used are different sizes so I placed them with that in mind.

{Step Two} Measure out the burlap. I bought some from Michael’s and placed it over the window. I didn’t use exact measurements, but cut the burlap a little bit smaller than the actual window frame. I knew I was going to attach the burlap on the sides, so be sure not to cut it too small. You don’t want to see the ends of the burlap through the window, or on the outsides of the frame.


{Step Three} I used Krazy glue to glue the burlap on the top of the window. This way the burlap is in place, but you can still lift it so you can place the pictures.

{Step Four} Place the photos in the correct places.

{Step Five} Using the Krazy glue, glue the burlap to the photos and the other sides of the frame. I also glued the burlap to the muntins {a muntin is a strip of wood or metal separating and holding panes of glass in a window}.


{Step Six} For an extra hold, I used a staple gun to staple the burlap to the sides of the window and where the munitions intersected. I also folded the burlap so that there was a clean edge which made it easier to staple.



And you’re done! It’s very easy to make and inexpensive! Great gift idea, and my mom loved it.
