Comic Book Frame Anyone Can Make (Great Gift Idea!)

Is your dad a superhero? Make him this cool comic book frame as a gift! It’s a fun, budget friendly project that any comic book lover will enjoy.

Skills Required: Beginner. You’ll be cutting comic book pages (or copies) and then decoupaging them to a frame with Mod Podge. It’s relatively easy even if you’re a newbie crafter.

Looking for a really fun way to celebrate the super dad in your life? Hi! It’s Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks. Father’s Day is right around the corner and my son and I made this really easy comic book frame for my husband.

My son and I really enjoyed making this easy craft together. 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)

Let’s make a super duper DIY frame!

Comic book pages cut into squares

Step 1: Cut out squares of paper from your comic book. If you don’t want to cut up a comic book, get laserjet color copies made at your local print store. Make sure they are laserjet so they won’t bleed when Mod Podged!

Step 2: (Optional) Sand your frame.

Step 3: Use Mod Podge to adhere the comic book squares to your frame. Note that my preschooler did this part all by himself. This craft is perfect for little kids because Mod Podge is fairly forgiving and dries clear at the end. So you don’t have to worry making things “perfect!”

Once all the images are adhered to the frame, cover everything with a thin coat of Mod Podge to seal it in place.

Step 4: Once the Mod Podge dries, flip the frame over and cut off any excess bits with a craft knife.

Step 5: Add a special message to the back of your frame with permanent marker.

Step 6: Put your photo in and you’re all set!

Make a DIY comic book picture frame with either real comic pages or color copies!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Active Time 45 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $1


  • Unfinished wood frame
  • Comic book (or color copies)
  • Mod Podge (Gloss or Matte)
  • Sandpaper (optional)


  • Scissors
  • Craft knife and mat
  • Paintbrush


  1. Sand any rough edges off your frame using the sandpaper, if desired. Remove any dust.
  2. Cut out pieces of comic book or copies - cut into squares.
  3. Apply a medium layer of Mod Podge to one side of the frame and place down the comic book pieces. Smooth with your fingers and let dry.
  4. Continue the previous step all the way around the edge of the frame and let dry completely before adding a top layer.
  5. Add a top layer of Mod Podge to the entire frame and let dry.
  6. Trim both the outer and inner edges of the frame with a craft knife.
  7. Add a photo and display.


If you want to use color copies of your comic books, then ideally you can get laserjet images printed of the pages. 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!).
