Turn those cute, trendy, holiday dish towels into a stylish shelf display. I found this Halloween towel in the dollar spot of target. I searched and searched for a frame to fit the cloth, but when I couldn't find one. decided to make a custom frame to fit it. It also was a lot cheaper then buying one. Scroll down to watch the video tutorial.
Follow this simple tutorial below to make your own.
2- 1x2 boards (cut to the length of your cloth.)
Hand staple gun.
Use wood glue to piece your wood ends together. Let sit for a couple of minutes. If you have access to a finish nailer you can nail the pieces together or use a hand stapler. I also used joint compound on the corner pieces but this is not necessary.
Paint your frame.
Once frame is dry use your staple gun to fasten the cloth to your frame. Start on the corner and work your way around the frame. If you are using the same cloth I used I HIGHLY RECOMMEND cutting of the black seam around the back. I only wanted the wording and the white part to show in my frame, so that all the lines were even.
Your done!!! Super simple, & easy way to decorate for the holidays. For all you visual learners below is a video tutorial.
Side Note: If you don't have a table saw at home, you can also make a custom frame from the square dowels. If you use this method to make your frame you will need a finish nailer or screw to stack the square pieces on top of each other forming a square. (It will be harder pulling your cloth tight doing it this way. You won't have as much room to work with.)
- Wooden Dowel from either Home Depot or Lowe’s. Thickness & Length is completely up to you.
- At least 3 colors of yarn. I just got the cheap yarn from Wal Mart.
