Start with all you supplies out. List on the tab
Take the glass out of an old frame and secure the back
Cut padding a bit bigger then your frame and lay face down ready to staple
Staple a the sides but check the front to make sure it is smooth
Fold the corners to neaten
The front after stapling
Staple the bottom of your fabric to the frame first then the top and keep tight. Finally finish with the sides.
This is how it should look so far
Cross the ribbon or cord across to get the look you want
Secure at the back
I stapled the cross over areas to make the cord tighter for holding photos ect
So far so good
Thread cotton through buttons
Tie the thread round the cord to hide staples, make sure it is secure.
Ready to hang!
I tidied up the back of mine by covering with some white fabric . Looks neater if giving as a gift.
One I made for myself, I did this one on canvas and used old earrings to secure the ribbon on the front
