I am a sucker for many things.
Oh, and Navy Blue or Cobalt Blue – its pretty good too.
Sausage & Biscuits.
Good Southern Movies.
The last two are the focus of this project.
Because really who doesn’t love a little faux lucite and a good Gone With the Wind quote?
Now, let’s pair those together in this DIY Lucite Frame.
Start to finish, this is going to take you all of 10 minutes. If that.
DIY Lucite Frame
Tools & Supplies:
- Printable (link at end of post) or other art of your choice.
- 2 pieces of Acrylic or Styrene Sheets in whatever size of your choice. Mine are 18″ x 24″, but you can do whatever size you want. I got mine at Home Depot. They are also on Amazon and I’m sure at other home improvement stores.
- 4 – #8 Machine Screws 3/4″ length (the length can be smaller if you aren’t using as thick of acrylic as I was.)
- 4 – #8 Screw Nuts
- Drill and Drill Bit the size of your screw ends
- 4 Small Clamps
- Pen or Pencil
Take the plastic off the acrylic.
Place your art on one of the pieces of acrylic. You may want to put a couple pieces of tape on the back of the art to keep it in place while you make the frame. Next, place the other piece of acrylic directly on top of that.
Clamp it all together.
Mark where you want your screws to go.
I came in about 1 1/4″ on both sides.
Going slowly and not putting too much pressure on the drill, drill through your marks until you make it through both pieces of acrylic.
Place a screw through each of the holes and screw a nut onto the back.
Heck of a lot cheaper than having someone else frame art for you.
Don’t you just love that quote from Rhett?
It will never get old.
I hope you have a damn good day.
