Step 1
The very first thing to do is to select your favorite wood form. Pick up the wood whose grain you find the best as in, the one which attracts you the most. Pine, oak, mahogany etc. can be some of the options to pick from. Make sure that the wood you choose, is enough for covering each side of the photograph to be framed with an extra inch of length.

Step 2
The next step is to cut out four different pieces of wood precisely at 45 degrees so as to fit them appropriately in a square or as per the size of the picture to be framed. Each of this wood piece is supposed to have 45 degrees of cuts going outwards. The joints can be secured using finishing nails or staples.

Finally, for placing the picture within the frame, first add a sheet of transparent plastic on the back of the frame. Paste it well with a strong adhesive. Once it has dried out completely, add the picture over it and a mat board onto it thereafter. Secure the mat board backing with nails so that the picture is well framed and protected in between the transparent sheet and mat board.

Step 5
Now screw in two metal rings on either side of the frame and run a thin rope string through it to hang the frame on the wall.

You are all set with a handmade wooden picture frame for gifting or using it at your own home.
