I have always wanted to make my own frames. It was time for some new printables so I finally gave it a go, using this Barnwood Frame plan from Ana White as my starting point. You can read on to see how I tweaked Ana’s plan to get 11×17 inch frames and to download your free Wayne Dyer and fruit of the spirit printables.
This project is fantastic because the frames look awesome, and are super cheap. I found 1×2 in 8′ strips for $0.75 at Lowes.
Follow Ana’s Plan linked above, but change your cut list as follows to get 11×17 frame openings:
2– 1x2s @ 14, 1 1/2″ flat side mitered so the shortest length is 11″
2– 1x2s @ 20, 1 1/2″ flat side mitered so the shortest length is 17″
2 – 1x2s @ 15 1/2″, edge side mitered so the shortest length is 14″
2 – 1x2s @ 21 1/2″, edge side mitered so the shortest length is 20″
Corner clamps are super helpful!
Here is an Albert Einstein Printable in a different color scheme that you can also download below…
I made a smaller frame for print in 8×10. I finished with homemade chalk finish paint I made from this chalk finish paint DIY.

I printed my 11×17 prints on regular copy paper and mounted them to white foam board with spray mount. I cut the foam to fit the frame opening and secured the mounted image to the frame with thumbtacks.
I hope you enjoy the printables, and give making your own frames a go. It is super rewarding!
