Bamboo is a plant is the grass family that contains long, woody stems. Bamboos are found in tropical and mild climate regions and can easily be grown in a gardener's backyard. Bamboo stems grow very quickly and can be cut and dried for use in many arts and crafts, including decorating and fabric weaving. Creating sets of matching bamboo picture frames out of thinner bamboo is one simple do-it-yourself craft.
Measure the desired picture size in the center of the clear plastic sheet and mark out the space with a permanent marker.
Measure, mark and cut the bamboo stems to fit around the sides of the frame. The bamboo should be formed to fit vertically around the entire frame.
Apply silicone sealant outside of the marked area on the plastic sheet.
Place the bamboo stems around the frame and press them firmly into the sealant.
Paste the correct size of matting to the back of the picture frame to give the frame a finished appearance.
Miter-cut two bamboo pieces and glue them to the back of the matting as the back stand.
