Artful Ideas for Every Room
Fill a Vertical Space With Colorful Framed Fabric
Mounted flea-market handkerchiefs (shown above) or silk scarves make cheery, inexpensive multiples. Uneven edges are part
of the charm, so don’t make yourself crazy going for perfection. For the backdrops, cut heavy construction paper to fit the
frames (use the cardboard inside the frame as a template). Iron the fabric, then attach it to the paper with one piece of
double-stick tape near the top. Smooth it with your fingers and place it in the frame. Hang a series in a tall row or a square
formation, depending on your space, measuring an inch or so between frames.
