How to Utilize Fabric for Wall Hangings : How to Build a Wall-Hanging Frame


DAVID A. CLEMEN: Hey, welcome back. Now, that
we’ve gone over the supplies, these are your typical canvass stretcher frames and basically,
they come precut and they’re notched out and so I’m going to take one of the long pieces
and then I’m going to take one of the short pieces and basically, these grooves are set
up to where we’ll enter lock and then you just slowly slide them in and they’re cut
in the corners at a 45-degree angle. Take that piece of paper out of there. So, once
you get this slid in, you move on to the next one. So, I’m going to take the other long
piece and I’m just going to set this down. I’m going to put this one end slowly and then
you want to try and get the corners flush. If you don’t push it all the way in–and I’ll
try and get it to–you’ll have this piece sticking out. You want to get the cut so they
can be flush. And that’s what you’re looking for for flush corners. And then for the last
one, I’ll just take this here and take this piece of tag off and then slowly insert this
side and then now, the last one gets a little tricky ’cause it wants to shift. But if you
get them flushed and when you get to put this one, you’ll have to back this out a little
bit and this one will spread. But once we get this in here, then we can go ahead and
flush up all the corners. Okay? I got that. I got that. And just go around each corner
and make sure they’re flush and then we’ve got our frame that will eventually become
one of these fabric pieces.
