How To Frame Your Pet Photos

January 19, 2023 / Decorate, Learn, Create

How do they do it? Somewhere along the way of digging holes in the garden, chewing up our shoes and jumping on the couch for the 95th time after we told them not to, our pets find their way into our hearts and become a member of our family.

Those fur babies are part of our family, and of course they deserve a special spot on our walls with our other kids and loved ones. So, if you’re ready to fetch some looks for your adorable pet, here are some ideas for howl, er… how to frame pet portraits, paintings and more!

Colorful Frames for Peppy Puppies

Oh, that boundless puppy energy. If you could bottle it up and sell it, you’d make a fine living. When it comes to dog picture frames, though, you can capture their bubbly personalities with some bright and beautiful looks. Colorful picture frames can give your walls the same pop your pup seems to have every second of the day.

You may not be able to contain all that tail-wagging intensity (who could?!), but with styles like our Chalkwoods picture frames or Fiesta picture frames, their infectious joy will jump off walls like they jump off the floor to greet you when you get home. And if your crazy canine is the outdoorsy type, try our Back Porch Wall or Tabletop picture frames for a rustic and rousing color scheme for their picture.

Ornate Frames for Regal Beagles

Snuggling with your favorite furry friend is always a luxury worth savoring. Spread that love to your walls with affordable luxury at its finest. Ornate picture frames elevate your pet photos and paintings, making them look timeless with an antique touch. It’s like doggy years – but for picture frames!

After all, we know they rule our households AND our hearts. Give them the royal treatment they deserve! Print their photo on a canvas and mount it in an ornate canvas floater frame for an easy way to take them from ruff to regal and create a stylish piece to add to any space.

Fine Art Frames for Fab Labs

Pet photos and paintings as a fine art? You bet your whiskers! Professional pet photography is a booming business, but you don’t have to go Hollywood with your hound to create a gallery-worthy look with your pet. A black picture frame and crisp white mat is a classic choice for giving your favorite snap of your pet some fine-art glam.

Pro-Artist favorite plein air frames will also showcase your pet’s loveable looks by setting their photo or painting apart with a wide profile. It’s an un-fur-gettable option for dog picture frames (or any other pet pal) that you’d be just as proud to have in an art competition as you would on your walls.

Canvas Floater Frames for Modern Mutts

Looking for a modern, marvelous option for showing off your pet? Channel your inner Paw-casso and create an art piece on canvas. You can even get your pet in on the action by using their paw prints as your paint brush! We’ve got some easy DIY pet art ideas over at our Pinterest page to try, or you can make a canvas print of your photogenic furball.

Now it’s time to get floating. Canvas floaters are the perfect choice for personalized pet picture frames that also look stunning in your space. Try a golden canvas floater for your golden retriever portrait, a barnwood canvas floater for your bold bulldog, or a Renaissance canvas floater for a posh poodle.

Collage Frames for Your Furry Family

But what if you have a whole family full of sweet squishy faces to display? Well, you certainly could go WALL out with a gallery wall of your pet parade. I mean, who could resist having that cuteness displayed from floor to ceiling, right? Right?!

Okay, maybe it’s possible to go a teensy bit far with pet-centric décor. The perfect solution might be collage picture frames. They are beautiful and versatile, all-in-one frames for showing your love for your whole cuddly crew.

Shadowbox Frames for Beloved Buddies

Is a single picture frame enough to contain all that love for your best friend? With custom shadowbox picture frames, the answer might be yes. From their collar to their blankie, a lock of their hair to that so-chewed-up-it’s-barely-recognizable favorite toy, you can honor all the little things that make them yours for years to come.

With their deep rabbets, shadowboxes give plenty of space for displaying mementos and keepsakes along with those precious pictures. Pet memorial shadowbox frames are elegant ways to remember that beloved member of the family. And the heavy-duty acrylic front will present your memories clearly while preserving them for years to come.

Fine Art Prints for All Paw Prints

You might have noticed quite a few doggies in this article, but we certainly don’t want to leave out the kitty kingdom! All these picture framing and printing options can work with any pet member of your family, but if you’re looking for a unique approach, fine art prints are stunning, standalone options worthy of your feline friend.

Acrylic prints provide high definition and clarity for pet portraits or outdoor shots of your cat on the prowl. Metal prints are beautiful, durable, and purrfect for brightly colored photos or art prints. And wood prints let the wood grrrain show through for down-to-earth pictures of tigers in the wild or adventurous prints of your bubbly little bobcat.

Woof woof! That’s doggy language for it’s time to wrap this up. But don’t FURget to tag us on social with your dog picture frames, acrylic paw prints or cool kitten collages with the hashtag #FramingJoy on your post.
