Now, we shall learn how to make a wallpaper frame with these materials.  The steps are given below. Follow these steps,

Steps To Make The Wallpaper Frame

  1. As a first step, if there are any broken pieces in the frame, repair them with wood glue and nails. They need to be clamped together until the glue dries up. Smooth out the rough edges with a sandpaper and then dust the dirt from the window frame.
  2. In the second step, use a primer and paint the window frame in your favorite color. One can use the spray primer. If it is windy outside, then apply a nice paint color simply by hand. Keep a sponge paintbrush with you to give a smooth finish to the wooden window frame.
  3. Try and measure the openings in the window frame. Cut 18 equal pieces of cardboard. It means there will be 2 pieces for each opening.
  4. Then one has to choose the wallpaper samples and their arrangement inside the window frame.
  5. Take a cardboard piece as a template and then cut the different wallpaper samples to the right size. Here a self-healing mat, a utility knife and a ruler will be required.
  6. Use a spray adhesive and stick each wallpaper sample nicely to a piece of cardboard.
  7. After this, you will have to insert each wallpaper-covered piece of cardboard inside the window frame. You will have to put another piece of cardboard behind each so that the pieces fit in snugly. Use masking tape and tape these pieces properly.
  8. Just follow the seventh, eighth, and ninth steps for finishing the project. Hammer nails on the wall and hang it on the wall.
