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

  • 4x Wooden Stretcher Bars
  • 4x "U" Nails
  • 4x Corner Wedges

Step 3: Lay your canvas out face down on a smooth, clean, flat surface. Lay out each Stretcher Bar along the edges of the canvas.

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

Step 5: Remove the double-sided adhesive tape on each stretcher bar. Then curl up all 4 sides into each other. Squeeze the corners to secure all of the stretcher bars in place.

So I got the frames but if I line them up in the edge of the canvas it will bend the picture itself and the corners get messed up because of the diamonds. If I used the edge of the picture I don’t have enough on the edge to hold onto the frame. I’m upset!

I don’t see an answer on how to put the stretcher bar on after you put on the diamonds. How do they wrap around the bars and stay on?

I also am confused. The video doesn’t seem to be a diamond painting and there is no print on the edges. Please post a video with a diamond painting and address the issue of the sides and what size frame to order.

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.

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.

So do the diamonds curl around the edge? Do they pop off? What do we do with the excess that has the legend on it? Cut if off. We need more details!

I’d also like to know if we cut off the edges first? Do the bars go at the edge of the actual picture? Do the gems pop off if the are bent around the frame? The canvas in the video didn’t look like it had gems on it.

How do we cover up all the writing and stuff on the edges? And what do you do when the drills aren’t straight? Can you show us how to do this with a Diamond Painting instead of a regular picture since they don’t have the issues thatwe have with diamond paintings?
