Hello friends! I’m so happy to share my vintage patriotic mantel using my DIY military yard longs!
I’ve always loved the look of framed military photos, but true vintage yard longs can be PRICEY. My friend Brittany @whiteandwoodgrain gave me the idea to create these beautiful framed military photos at a fraction of the cost!
I partnered with Frame It Easy on this project and they made it so simple. So today I want to share how I did it so that you can make some too!

First, I chose free digital downloads from the Library of Congress website. I searched for military panoramic. There are so many to choose from and it was hard to narrow it down!
Next, I downloaded the largest file (tiff) and converted it to a jpeg using a free online converter. Then I uploaded it to the Frame It Easy website. If you want to do this on your phone, download the tiff file and save as image, then upload it and it should work.
I then used the slider bar to change the size so that all of them were 6.5” in height. You’ll have to pay attention to the lengths if you’re wanting to stagger their sizes. The three I chose ended up being about 1”-1.5” different in length. I chose the Hanover frame in satin black, with no matting, and chose photo paper for printing.
After you’re finished creating your custom frames, simply checkout and they do the rest! I was surprised at just how simple it was. They arrived looking amazing and came with all that I needed to easily hang it on the wall.
I also made this framed book page quote that I created in Canva that you can download here. Just save the image below.
Each of the military yard longs were under $50!Also, if you go to frameiteasy.com/krista a 10% off discount will automatically apply!
I love how they turned out and I’m all about getting the look for less. Let me know if you decide to create some too!
