How to Frame Small Art Prints to be Beautiful & Oversized

How to Frame Small Art Prints

In Ava’s powder bathroom, Jason and I made this wall hanging that says “Bows before Bros” .

It was cute little picture that we found in Hobby Lobby’s clearance aisle for $2.99. You can watch the live shopping we did here.

It was too wimpy in size for the bathroom. I find that happens a lot! I’ll find signs I like but they just aren’t big enough and I like everything to be a little oversized.

So I had an old framed print down in the basement that I picked up at a thrift store or garage sale at some point. If I find an art print that has a gorgeous frame and it’s cheap, I buy them all the time. You just ever know when you’re going to want to make one into a chalkboard (like these two here and here) or if you’re going to want to use it like I did in Ava’s bathroom to buff up the size of a tiny print.

I did this whole project live on Instagram Stories, so find me there @JenniferAllwood

So literally did ZERO PREP. I spray painted it in the garage

I spray painted the frame and the art print that was in there.

And here is my best spray painting tip: Just rock back and forth.

Then Jason popped off the hanging hardware from the back of the small frame so it would lay flush on the bigger frame.

Then I glued it on to the the thrift store picture. Nice and flush! So now this tiny framed art is true statement piece!
