How to Frame Jigsaw Puzzles

After completing an epic 1000-piece puzzle, you may want to commemorate the piece by framing it and placing it on the wall. After-all, it has taken dedication, perseverance, hard-work and countless hours to achieve completion.

How do you hang it though? What frame is best? Does one need glue? 

This entry, I will discuss the best and easiest way to frame a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. Enjoy!


So, the 1st thing is to choose a frame that suits your newly assembled puzzle. Simple enough right? Just choose something that not only houses your puzzle but suits it as well. You can pick up a puzzle frame from your local craft shop.

Okay, so now you have chosen a frame, you need to back it up. As in slide the backing under the puzzle. You can do this by setting the backing up parallel to the table and slowly sliding the puzzle onto it. 

Glue is not necessary, but if you have any doubts Mod Podge is a popular craft glue that is highly recommended for gluing your puzzle together. Simply follow the instructions on the bottle!

Now that the puzzle is on the backing, it is time to sandwich the puzzle in the frame. If your puzzle is face up after sliding onto the backing, you only need to simply place the acrylic front (or glass) on top of the puzzle. 

Whether or not you have chosen to glue the puzzle, it will be supported and preserved for a long time to come!

So, just to recap:

  1. Buy a frame.
  2. Back it up. (glue if needed)
  3. Sandwich your puzzle

Simple enough right? With these easy steps, you will be able to cherish your framed puzzle for years to come!
