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.
