DIY Triangle + Neon Photo Frames

DIY Triangle + Neon Photo Frames via Love From Ginger

I have a little spot on one of my bookshelves which has been needing a little pop of colour for ages.

These cute triangle stand alone frames displaying some of my favourite photos was just what the home decor angels requested!

For this project I changed out the triangles from these mini mountains, so I didn’t even need to get out the trusty jigsaw. And one of the images I used was from Unsplash, another great free stock photo library which you will just love.

Supplies:

  • Wooden triangles (you can get your local hardware shop to cut them for you*)
  • Photos
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Neon paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Sandpaper

*TIP: make sure your wooden triangles are thick enough to stand up by themselves.

Step 01: Sand down the edges of your triangle.

Paint on a couple of coats of your neon colour and wait until the edge is dry before moving onto the next step.

Step 02: Use your triangle as a template and trace on the back of the photo where you want your image to show.

Cut out your triangle.

Step 03: Glue your photo on to the triangle.

You can trim the image if it is overhanging at this point.

Now all that’s left to do is find a spot to display your cute new frames.

This project is great for using up those scraps of wood from other projects too.

    I just can’t believe I’ve not come across your beautiful blog before – how has that happened?? How? How?!? I love pretty much every project of yours that I’ve seen so far and I’ve been here about 20 mins now! This is such a simple and lovely idea, in fact most of your projects come into that category. I have to go now (unfortunately I have a son who needs dropping off somewhere – not unfortunate that I have a son of course!) but I’ll be back!

      Awww….Julie! Thanks so much for that sweet comment. I have a broken wrist at the moment so the blog is running very slow, but keep checking back as things will be back up and running very soon!
