Art in an Instant: 12 Quick Ideas Using Floating Glass Frames

Forget about matting, cutting wood and finding acid-free painter’s tape — the floating glass frame is here to make framing art remarkably easy. If using a store-bought frame, just sandwich the art or found object between the pieces of glass—and voilà, you have a wall-worthy piece. DIY-ing your own is hardly more complicated: two sheets of glass and a roll of black tape is all you’ll need. Clearly, making this frame is simple, but what you display can be as minimal or elaborate as you like. Here are some top contenders.

(Image credit: Frame Bridge )

They fill a blank wall up nicely and add personality to a room by allowing you to display your favorite artwork, photos and keepsakes all in one spot. But they’re not always easy to pull off. Even when you’re going for that artfully random look, a gallery wall takes a lot of planning. So if you’re looking for a way to simplify the process and do something a little different, then consider the aligned art wall, where some (or all) of the outer edges of your frames line up perfectly with one another no matter their sizes.

DIY Ideas for Framing Big Art on a Small Budget

This past fall, I went on a quest for a simple frame for a long 14-by-50-inch map. After quickly realizing there was no way a store-bought frame would fit these odd dimensions, I emailed a local NYC framing company for a quote.
