Cut the foam board. Trace the size of your picture frame insert on the foam board. It helps to use the cardboard, glass or paper insert from the frame as a reference. Cut using a craft knife.

Cut the fabric. Using your foam board as a guide, cut the fabric leaving a rough 2-inch margin around each side.

Cut the wire mesh. First, test the foam board in the frame and make sure it fits. Then mark your margins carefully and using wire cutters, cut the wire mesh to the exact size of the foam board.

Glue the fabric to the board. If your fabric is wrinkled, iron it flat first. Then fold the edges over the foam board and glue it down working a few inches at a time. Be sure to keep the fabric stretched tight over the board.
