Comic Book Frame Anyone Can Make

Are you a comic book collector? Maybe you’re sitting in your home surrounded by a fortress of comic books that you’ve lovingly collected over the years. Each one a gateway to a universe where superheroes reign supreme.

But then it hits you – these vibrant masterpieces are hidden away, gathering dust, when they could be out there, jazzing up your home decor and showing the world (or at least your visitors) just how cool you truly are.

Today I’m going to show you how to solve the problem of “I have lots of comic books and not enough frames.” You’re going to fix that with this cool DIY comic book frame!

Who needs another boring, store-bought frame when you can create something that screams, “Yes, I read comic books, and yes, I am a crafting god/goddess”?

Now, before you start worrying about having to sacrifice your rare, mint-condition issue of “The Amazing Spider-Man” to the Mod Podge universe, let’s get something straight.

DIY Comic Book Frame

This project is perfect for those loose pages, duplicates, or (dare we say) the less beloved issues that somehow found their way into your collection. You can also make laserjet copies of the originals.

You’re about to embark on a crafting adventure that will end with you having the coolest, most personalized frame this side of Gotham City. And the best part? It’s so easy, even a crafting novice can do it. No radioactive spider bite or billion-dollar inheritance required.

So, if you’re ready to turn your comic book collection into the envy of all your friends and add a splash of color and personality to your decor, then stick around.

My son and I really enjoyed making this easy craft together for Father’s Day. He’s currently obsessed with superheroes and loved making this special comic book frame for his super daddy!

Here are the materials needed:

  • Wooden frame
  • Mod Podge
  • Sponge brush
  • Comic book (or laserjet color copies of the pages)
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Cutting mat
  • Photo
  • Permanent marker
  • Sandpaper (optional)

Tips and Thoughts for This Project

If you make color copies of the pages, it is preferable to print them out on laserjet so they don’t bleed when the Mod Podge is applied.

If you have to use inkjet, print out the copies. Then spray both sides with either clear acrylic sealer or hairspray. Let dry for 24 hours before doing the project (so the ink doesn’t bleed!).

This craft is perfect for little kids because Mod Podge is fairly forgiving and dries clear at the end. Note that my preschooler did this part all by himself. So you don’t have to worry making things “perfect!”
