Here’s how to frame a Diamond Painting

  • You spent tons of time perfecting your dazzling diamond painting and now it’s time to show it off! One of the best ways to immortalize your one-of-a-kind work of art is to frame it so that it becomes a permanent part of your home décor and so that you can admire it every day. Framing your diamond artwork is easy and well worth the effort (plus, it’s a surefire way to earn yourself some major compliments)! Here’s how to do it.

    After you are satisfied that the painting is complete, take a soft brush (toothbrushes work well) and remove any dust or debris from the diamond painting. If you find a bit of debris that is stuck in the small crevices between diamonds, use the tweezers that are included with every 5D full drill diamond painting art kit to remove it. Then, take a damp (not wet), soft cloth and gently clean the surface of the diamond painting. It is imperative that your diamond painting is clean and ready for the next stage of the process.

    Glue Your Diamond Painting To A Blank Pre-Stretched Canvas
    This strategy involves buying a pre-stretched canvas from your favorite craft store (or Amazon) and simply gluing your finished canvas onto it. The hard part is already done for you - no stretching or stapling necessary!

    Use a spray adhesive on BOTH the back of the painting and the blank canvas. When the glue feels sticky to the touch, place the painting carefully on the canvas, smoothing it down as you go and removing any wrinkles or bubbles. Let dry for 24 hours and you're good to hang!

    Pro Tip: Find the proper fit for your painting by measuring the canvas after you've already cut off the borders. If you don't want a large border, buy a canvas as close to the measured size as possible.  

    Frame it with Stretcher Bars
    Stretcher bars are the wooden frames used by artists to frame canvas art, and they’re the perfect solution for art in all shapes and sizes. This method requires you to quite literally stretch the completed canvas over the wooden pieces, resulting in breathtaking wall art that’s easy to hang and showcase.

    Note that this method doesn’t actually involve a frame—the edges of the canvas will be stretched over the wood, creating a three-dimensional look.

        Measure your painting. Decide if you’d like the artwork to stretch around the edges of the canvas or have a border. Select stretcher bars that are slightly smaller than the canvas.
        Wrap the canvas around the stretcher bars and use a staple gun to hold it in place. Make sure the canvas is taut. You can also use U nails to keep the canvas in place if you prefer a neater look.
        Attach wall-mounting hardware to the back of the canvas on the top stretcher bar so you can easily hang it anywhere!
