DIY this Urban Outfitters picture frame
Here’s what you’ll need for the frame:
One (1) sheet of acrylic— I found this one at Home Depot that’s 11” x 14” for $7.48
1-foot of small chain— I used this one, also purchased from Home Depot for like 50-cents
Four (4) 3/4-inch cabinet bumpers
Two (2) small jump rings —or— a piece of wire and a pair of needle nose pliers.
To mount the photos you’ll need glue dots.
This is another pretty simple DIY.
Peel the plastic off the back of the acrylic sheet.
If you’ve got the same D-ring hangers that I bought, you can unsheathed the white plastic part and the screw. I didn’t need it for this project. What’s left behind is an all metal hanger.
Then, attach the jump rings to the D-ring hangers. And use the jump rings to link the D-rings to the chain so that you have D-rings on either end of the chain.
If you don’t have small jump rings, (like me) I was able to connect the D-rings with some wire. I used a pair of pliers to help attach the D-rings to the chain.
If you’re using an 11”x 14” acrylic sized sheet like me, then measure two and a half inches from either edge of the top, with the sheet oriented as a portrait, not a landscape.
Now, put a dot of E6000 glue about two and a half inches from either edge, very close to the top. This is the back of the sheet.
Place the bottom of D-ring hangers on top of the glue drops, so that the “D” part of the hanger peeks over the edge of the sheet, at an angle. (Scroll for a closeup of the glue action.)
Let the glue dry for at least 5 hours. Overnight is best.
Put four cabinet bumpers on all four corners on the back of the sheet.
Ta-da! You’re done!
To mount photos:
Use some craft glue dots on the corners of the photo and arrange the photos on the frame.
I believe the UO frame might be two acrylics sandwiched together but I really wanted to make this for less than $24 for people who wanted something like this and/or didn’t want to spend or risk shipping it and damaging it (i.e. me. I made this for myself lmao). Also maybe you live in a place where UO won’t ship to you and now you can make this! Hopefully you have a hardware store nearby too.
Or if you don’t and you make this without stuff from a hardware store PLEASE TELL ME I WANT TO KNOW HOW. YOU ARE A CRAFT GOD.
Anyway, I hope you like it and I hope you make it! It’s so easy. And I believe it’s bigger than the one on the UO website which is 9” x 12”.
Yo, did you like this at all? Do you know any DIY queens who would DO GREAT AT THIS?
