Our family gift for Christmas from my In-Laws was a beautiful 2000 piece puzzle. We spent the next two weeks working on it, some days non-stop! After all that effort and time, there was no way it was going back in the box. It was going to be framed!
We had a piece of ply wood cut just slightly larger than the picture, then used some puzzle glue to glue the pieces in place on top of the plywood board. No wanting to buy a frame and glass, I used a frame from a picture I no longer liked. The frame, unfortunately was too big. After pondering for a bit, (and honestly the solution should have been instantaneous, but wasn’t! It’s so embarrassing.) I thought of adding trim to the frame to cover the gaps.
Once my brain started functioning again, it also occurred to me that trim could be added to any frame you wanted to repaint. Some frames have wimpy moulding for the picture it holds, so adding trim would make the frame look more substantial. Brilliant I tell you!
