Displaying family portraits is a sentimental way to capture and remember your family’s history. Sometimes, however, less formal snapshots -- that are easily changed around -- make a fun personal statement to decorate the walls of your home. Depending on the size of frame used, you can show off several 4x6 sized prints on clever clothesline ribbons, reflecting a current hobby, cherished family pets or a recent vacation.
You will need these supplies to make one clothesline style gallery frame:
Clean and paint your frame. If your frame has glass or any backing material, this should be removed and carefully discarded.
Cover your cardboard backing piece in one layer of cotton batting and one layer of fabric and hot glue one side at a time. Tuck and glue corners as shown. Your fabric should be taut enough to avoid wrinkles, but use care to avoid bending your cardboard backing by pulling too tight.
