GLUE YOUR DIAMOND PAINTING TO A BLANK PRE-STRETCHED CANVAS
This is a great, very easy option that is also relatively inexpensive with Diamond Painting . All you have to do is purchase a pre-stretched canvas from your favorite craft store or online website. You will then glue your finished canvas onto it. This option is so simple and takes all difficulty out of the equation. You will not need to stretch or staple!
Use a spray adhesive to the back of the painting and also on the blank canvas to ensure it stays secure. Once the glue feels sticky, go ahead and place your painting on the canvas. Make sure you smooth it down and remove all the wrinkles or bubbles as you go. Once completed, let it sit and dry for 24 hours. After 24 hour your masterpiece will be ready to hang!
Recommendation: To find the proper fit for your painting, measure the canvas after you have already cut off the borders. If you do want to have a large border you should purchase a canvas as close to the measured size as possible.
APPLY STRETCHER BARS TO YOUR FINISHED CANVAS
If you are more of a do it yourself kind of person this option might be for you. It’s a bit more challenging but also relatively inexpensive. You will need a set of stretcher bars for this. The stretcher bars will come with detailed directions and result in a gorgeous display.
Recommendation: Buy a size that’s about 5 centimeters shorter than the canvas so that you have some room for wrapping. This makes for an awesome wrapped diamond edge around the borders.
MOUNT YOUR PAINTING TO A FOAM BOARD OR CARDBOARD
You will need to do a bit of measuring and cutting for this technique. You will also need a foam board which can be purchased online or at your local craft or hardware store.
The key to creating a flat, borderless painting is to use box cutters to cut the foam board down to the preferred size (the same size as your canvas minus the border). Then simply glue your painting to the foam so that it is centered and only the borders are hanging off the sides.
The next and final step is to fold the borders over the back of the foam board and glue them down firmly. Be sure that the canvas is tight to the foam board.
