Rustic Wood Frame Instructions:
Begin by staining the front and cut edges of your board with dark stain using a paint brush, allowing it to set for several minutes before wiping away any excess with a rag.
Allow it to dry completely before proceeding. Incorporate your file into the design software provided with your electronic cutting machine and adjust its size once uploaded for optimal fit on the board you are using. Finally, cut white vinyl using this software.
Transfer tape can then be used to secure vinyl to the wood piece and hot glue is then used to attach clothespins. TIP: Take special care in positioning both vinyl and clothespins so that your pictures have plenty of room for hanging.
