This Easy, DIY Magnet Frame Won’t Damage Your Posters

Frames can be expensive, especially for large posters or art, but some DIY options either take a long time and lots of materials or don’t look great. Make this magnet frame for a simple, good-looking frame that lets your posters shine, and is easy to swap art in and out of.

Besides being easy to make, this frame uses magnets to hold your art in place so it doesn’t damage your posters, and when you’re tired of one look, you can swap out the poster quickly. You need a drill with a 1.25 Forstner bit, four 3.18cm wooden strips the width of your art, 12 x 1.25cm magnets, two screw eyes, E6000 adhesive or other strong glue.

Drill three holes in each piece of wood and glue a magnet in each. Make sure you use opposite charged magnets on each piece of wood for the top and bottom so that they stick when brought together. Add the screw eyes to the end of one of the top pieces of wood. Place your poster between the bottom and top pieces and hang by tying a piece of string to the screw eyes.
