Each Paint With Diamonds Wooden Frame Stretcher Bar kit comes with: 

  • 4x Wooden Stretcher Bars

Make sure each stretcher bar is flush up against the edge of the painting! Otherwise your final product might not come together well. 

Also take note that the skinny (narrow) half of each stretcher bar should be facing inward

Step 3: Use tape (not included) to secure the bars in place on the canvas.

    I have 2-5piece sets which I purchased from you last October’18
    “Ocean View” (Order P250250D) and also “Bright City Lights”(OrderP252259D). I am hoping you have Stretcher Frames which are suitable for 5 piece sets with different size prints which I would really like to purchase. Please let me know as I want to be able to make sure I have a beautifully finished piece of art.

    where do I order/buy the bars – do they come in different sizes?


  • Adrienne

    I don’t see answers for the questions above. So you have to frame before starting? How do you know which size frame to get?

    You put all the diamonds on first and then use the stretcher kit. You wrap the edge of the canvas around the wooden bars and staple so when the picture is done you see no sides only the actual picture. Hope this helps clear up questions.

    why do you say theses painting are 20×25cm or 29x 20x when they are only 11×10 or something like that. I don’t know what a cm is.
