Easy DIY Wood Frame

This DIY wooden frame is really easy (and really cute)!

I created it because I wanted to create a wifi password sign for my guests (I’ll be sharing the free editable printable very soon).

A few months ago, I made this large wooden sign (to see the full tutorial click HERE), and I love the look of the frame on the sign.

I had scraps leftover from the project, so I decided to recreate the wood frame look on a smaller scale.

For this wooden frame you’ll need:

  • Furring Strip 
  • Small sheet of plywood
  • Wood Stain
  • Nail gun
  • Chop Saw
  • Spray adhesive
  • Artwork

I began by adding my artwork to the plywood.  I tried Mod Podge, but I found that it left too many bubbles.  Spray adhesive worked much better.

Using a chop saw, I cut the furring strip into pieces for the frame(s).  I cut the top and bottom piece so they overlapped the side pieces.  (I cut enough pieces for two separate frames.)

I stained the pieces.

Next, I put the frames together (attaching the cut wooden strips to the artwork mounted on plywood) using my nail gun.

It was super easy and inexpensive.

You can make the frame as large (or small) as you want!

    • Oh man – It’s pretty thin. I had to be pretty careful about nailing into it, and I missed several times. I just made sure I tilted towards the back so if I missed it didn’t come through the front of the sign. A thicker board would make nailing the frame around it MUCH easier!

  1. Did you do anything to prepare the plywood? Wondering if I’d have to sand it a little? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this.

  2. Can you tell if your wall behind Wifi sign is wallpaper or painted? I really like it and have been looking for ideas on how to achieve this look. Thanks!

  3. Hi! Thanks for sharing! Can you tell me how you applied that artwork to the plywood? It looks like a piece of paper versus a stencil, so I’m kinda confused. Thanks!
