If you are using your stretcher bars, you can follow these 7 steps once you have completed your 5D Diamond Painting.
Step 1. Once you're finished working on your diamond painting, then it's time to frame it. Have everything you need, before you start including your: canvas, DIY frame, thumbtacks, scissors, tape measure and a marking pen.
Step 2. Unwrap the frame and put the tacks to one side. The frame consists of four pieces, two long and two short.
The DIY frame is easy to assemble as it does not require any glue or nails, it arrives pre-cut with groves. You simply take one short piece and one long and push them together, repeat the process until the frame is squared and complete.
Step 3. Place the canvas facing up on a flat surface and manoeuvre the frame to the required position on the canvas. Using a tape measure, check diagonally from outside corners of the frame and then check the opposite diagonal to make sure the frame is square.
Step 4. With your marking pen in hand, lift each corner of the canvas and mark where the four corners of the frame are located on the canvas.
Step 5. Place the canvas face down, put the frame on top and align the frame with the marks from Step 4.
Step 6. Start with the centre of the longest side of the frame, lift the canvas over the frame, stretching it slightly so that the canvas on the opposite side is not slack and anchor with thumbtacks. Repeat on all sides with at least three thumbtacks in each section.
Step 7. Using a sharp pair of scissors, make one cut in each corner. Make sure you cut in the same line as the frame. Then fold over and tack the two corner pieces together.
