This affordable DIY rustic twig frame from DIY Huntress is a great way to add some charm to your fall decor!
I love the fall! It's my favorite season. That's why I'm here today... to share a last minute fall project with you before the winter creeps up on us! While I was walking my puppy the other day I noticed lots of amazing branches and twigs along our path. Of course the DIY blogger in myself said, "I can totally make something out of these." So, I did! This project was a cute way to add rustic charm to my fall decor, and best part about this project is that it only cost me $1!
Here's how you can make your own rustic twig frame in just a few steps!
How To Make Rustic Twig Frames
Hot Glue Gun
- After collecting your sticks and twigs, use the larger ones to create a frame.
- Hot glue the corners.
- Use your medium sized twigs to create a smaller frame inside the larger one.
- Hot glue the sticks to the frame.
- Use smaller twigs to create patterns and zig-zags along the sides of the frame.
- Hot glue those as well.
- Use twine to create a hanger for the frame. This can be done by wrapping the twine around the ends of the frame.
- Print out a photo of something that makes you happy! This can be a picture of a leaf, or even a photo of your family! Print out two copies of the photo. Make sure to flip the image on one copy so that when you are cutting out the patterns, the photos match up on both sides.
- Glue the photos back-to-back.
- Hot glue a piece of twine in between the photos.
- Tie the other side of the glued twine to the frame so that it hangs.
Done, and done! A simple and affordable way to add some handmade rustic charm to your home! Just in time for Thanksgiving! Don't love the fall as much as I do? That's okay! If you wish to use them for the holidays, you can spray paint them white and hang holiday inspired photos as well!
