DIY Mini Twig Photo Frame Craft

Written by: | Published: May 26, 2022 | Updated: January 19, 2023

Whenever we take pictures, we try to find creative ways to display them. For all the outdoor fans and garden lovers, creating a nature craft would be fun theme for a photo project. This mini frame is a great DIY gift the kids can make any time of year.

Make a Mini Twig Picture Frame

Make this mini twig frame in just a few steps, each one is unique. Grab some garden clippers and snip off a few twigs and create a mini photo frame. Personalize the look by layering twigs together or changing the twine type or color you use.

Supplies You Need:

  • Printer
  • Printed photos
  • Small twigs
  • Scissors
  • Glue (Aleene’s Tacky glue works GREAT!)
  • Twine


  1. Trim photo to size.
  2. Cut twigs, coordinating with your photo. Make sure to leave about 1 inch at each end so you have room to add the twine.
  3. Add glue to twigs and place where you’d like them directly on the photo.
  4. Optionally add additional, smaller twigs.
  5. Wrap twine around the corners of the twigs. This step works best is glue has dried completely
  6. Trim the twigs down a bit.
  7. Add a piece of twine to allow for hanging of your picture frame. I tied the twine to each of the top corners to add the hanging string.

Tip: to print out smaller photos and not waste photo paper, use a collage app to combine two photos on one page.
