You will need:
- one picture frame, whatever size you like. I used 18″ x 24″
- a piece of corrugated cardboard cut to fit your frame
- cork tiles, which you can find at Michael’s next to the whiteboards, about 10 dollars for 4 (12″ square)
- pretty fabric, a little larger than the area to be framed
- hot glue gun + glue
- stapler + staples
- x-acto knife
Step 1: Glue the cork to the corrugated cardboard. You will probably have to cut some pieces, but that’s okay. No one will see! Just make sure they are pushed close together, no gaps.
Step 2: Try out your fabric in the frame, just to make sure you like it.
Step 3: Lay your fabric wrong-side-up on the floor or table. Then place your cork+cardboard cork-side-down on top. Stretch the fabric around it and staple to the back. You can use a regular stapler for this; just open it up. Start at the middle of each side, then work toward the corners.
Step 5: Install the fabric covered cork in the frame. Lovely!
Step 6: Hang and use!
