Step 1: Gather Materials
For the board I used a peice of 1/2 inch plywood. I used one aboit 17x40 inches. it can be any size. The bigger the more photos can be mounted to it
Finally I used 1/4 inch elastic banding. This is availible at most any sewing supply store but I found really good deals on colored bands on Etsy.
I also used 3/8 inch staples to attach everything. I am lucky enough to have an air powered staple gun but a hand powered one would be fine. The other main tool will be a pair of scissors to cut the fabric and elastic.
A saw to cut the plywood may be needed if it's not the needed size already. Any home improvement store could do this for you also.
Step 2: Attach Fabric
Next make sure all the wrinkles are out of the fabric and stretch the fabric tight and fold it over one edge of the board and staple it.
Next pull the fabric tight over the opposite edge and keep wrinkles out and staple that edge. Next is the corners.
Step 3: Corners
The best advice I can give you is to try folding it over different ways until it looks right and do eat have wrinkles. Sometimes every corner will be different even on a simple rectangle like this. Also on this project the back will not be visible so only worry about how the front looks.
Step 4: Elastic
Hold down the elastic on the back and put in two staples. Stretch it across the front very tight. You cannot go too tight I have found. tighter is better.
Step 5: Mount Hanging Hardware
First screw the two eye screws into the back of of the board. Make sure the eyes are horizontally aligned with the board.
Next run the wire through the eye and bend it I over the incoming wire at 90 degrees and the wrap it around once then string back through the eye. Then bend it at a 90 again and wrap it around several times to lock it. Do the same on the other side.
Wire picture hanging kits come with a hook that nails into thr wall. These work fine but I used a longer drywall screw into a stud.
