DIY: Photo Triptych

Using a triptych photo frame can make a photo collection more substantial, or unite three images with a common theme such as subject, composition, or color. And, if you have three wall-mounted frames without stands, turning them into a triptych will allow them to stand up on their own. A photo triptych makes a great gift and a fun weekend project.

Supplies:

  • three 3.5-by-5-inch unfinished pine frames
  • four hinges with screws
  • small flathead screwdriver
  • paint in your color of choice and a paint brush (or spray paint)

Steps:

  1. Remove the glass and backing material from the frames. Set aside.
  2. Paint the frames with two coats, drying in between each coat. Let dry.
  3. Using your screwdriver, connect each frame with a pair of hinges at the same distance with the pivot facing outward.
  4. Replace the glass, your photos or artwork, and then the artwork.
  5. Clasp it into place, and fold it standing on a table.
  6. If you want to hang it, you can attach two D rings to the middle frame, and hang it on two screws in the wall.
  7. Enjoy!
