Frames for tiki artwork and pictures?

Pages: 1 6 replies

I'm having such a hard time finding frames that would look right for my tiki room. The few I've found online are really expensive. So I thought I'd ask here and find out where you have found frames for your artwork.


I've found most of mine at second hand stores or Goodwill.

Split bamboo and rope-like string ties at the corners can cover any unsuitable frame for a more "tiki" look. Cheap and easy to achieve too.

Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely look into getting some bamboo and rope.


Buy yourself a frame with narrow moulding that your artwork fits in from a charity shop. Then get some bamboo of a suitable gauge and split it vertically. (Don't worry, this is quite easily done with a sharp knife and a hammer. Split one end and tap the knife down the length of the bamboo.). You can then hot glue the bamboo onto the frame and then tie the corners artistically with some rough string. Something like this below: 9a5441619505b6ccff30c0b0517130e9--bamboo-ideas-picture-frames

Nice, thanks for the instructions. I'll definitely look into making some of the artwork I would like to put up.


Another simple idea.
