The 'Ellen’s Design Challenge' carpenter shows you how to make simple frames with a secret weapon: Rare earth magnets!

Whether you want to hang cute family photos (or that poster from your last rock concert) it’s not hard to make an inexpensive frame for your artwork.

You've seen Matt Muenster's carpentry stylings on Ellen’s Design Challenge, but when he's not building high-end designer furniture, he also has super-simple advice for budding carpenters. 

Here, he shows you how to create a frame that looks great and makes it easy to change when you’re redecorating…or when you want to swap your festival poster before an in-laws visit. 

Get Matt's steps for making a frame for your artwork:
