Step-by-step

  1. Measure your length of fabric and decide on the size of canvas you want, you will need a 10 cm fabric overlap for turning and stapling onto the frame.
  2. Cut batons to length from wood strip. Using corner braces screw the frame together at the corners. Stretch the fabric over the frame, working from the centre out staple fabric in place to the back of the frame. At the corners cut off excess fabric and fold in for a neat finish.
  3. Hang canvas using Commandstrip
